Australia involved in illegitimate war on Iraq

March 20, 2003

Australian Lawyers for Human Rights today added their voice to the growing body of international opinion that the involvement of Australia in a war on Iraq led by the United States of America will bring Australia into clear breach of international law. Australian Lawyers for Human Rights and Australian Human Rights Centre released a report authored by Simon Rice AO, former ALHR President, and Dr Scott Calnan.  The report is titled “Sustainable Advocacy: Capabilities and attitudes of Australian human rights NGOs.”
