Civilian killings highlight senselessness of Afghan war

This Monday I was asked to represent the Greens at a rally opposing the continuing military presence in Afghanistan and expressing solidarity with the Afghan people over the senseless killing of 16 civilians by a US soldier.  The Greens have opposed an Australian military presence in Afghanistan since the beginning and this latest tragedy is another example of why we have taken this stance.

Please see the speech I delivered here.
