To Members of the Australian Parliament:

The Afghan war debate is your opportunity, after nine years, to give voice to what most Australians wish — the withdrawal of our troops from the war in Afghanistan. It is also an opportunity to bring to light, after years of neglect by mainstream commentators, many important truths about this war. Matters that we ask you to make prominent are:

Next year marks 10 years that US-led forces have been in Afghanistan. The Australian Anti-Bases Campaign calls on Australian Parliamentarians to bring Australian troops home from Afghanistan and to withdraw all Australian assistance to the war in Afghanistan now.
