Rally for Peace

A new poll indicates that

Only 6 per cent of Australians are prepared to send Australian troops to war against Iraq without United Nations backing, an exclusive national Age poll has found.
In the AC Nielsen AgePoll - a blow to the Federal Government's stand on the war with the United States - 62 per cent of respondents said Australia should be involved in a conflict only if approved by the UN.
One in three believed war against Iraq was not acceptable under any circumstances.
"The government obviously doesn't disregard community attitude," he [Defence Minister Robert Hill] said.

That's good, since there's going to be a rally next Friday, as a part of an international weekend of events opposing the US war on Iraq. Thanks to Rachel for reminding me.
