Here's Bryan Law's protest action against the visit to Cairns by the communications vessel, the USS Blue Ridge.
This is no holiday cruise ship. This enormous ship is part of the first strike nuclear weapon capability. It's mission is to directly support the war effort in Afghanistan and Iraq, and when it leaves our tropical port in a few days, will be heading back to carry on it's duties as a war machine.
It is on this basis that local peace activists oppose it's visit and supporting economic investment from the US war machine.
Cairns Peace by Peace intend to hold a series of actions over the next few days.
Both WIN TV and 7 News will cover this story this evening, complete with CairnsBlog video coverage. You can see the full story here...
