Aussies deport US man for inciting peace

Speaking out against Haliburton "Threat to national security"

From the BBC
A US peace activist branded a threat to national security by Australia will not fight deportation, his lawyer has said.

Scott Parkin will take legal action against officials to find out why they decided he was a security risk, his lawyer Julian Burnside added.

Mr Parkin was arrested following a Sydney protest against US military contractor Halliburton, a firm with close ties to the Bush administration...

Mr Parkin had been interviewed on Australian television as a leader of a protest against Halliburton's involvement in Iraq.

He was detained on Saturday in Melbourne and is expected to be deported within the next few days.

Why do they hate our freedom?
