Subject: Return Howard's mailout

As you are probably aware, over the next fortnight the
Federal Government is sending a mailout to every
household in Australia. In this pack is a letter from
our illustrious Prime Minister, a booklet on how to
help the government "fight terrorism" and a fridge
magnet (!)

Today, Brisbane's Lord Mayor, Jim Soorley, made the
eminently sensible suggestion that Australians who did
not support the Howard government's backing of
America's war should simply return the package to

I, for one, think it's a fantastic opportunity to show
Mr Howard that not all Australians think the way he
does. If you agree as well, I urge you to:

1. Watch out for the package when it arrives, mark it
"Return to Sender" and drop it in the nearest mailbox.
You may also want to add a personal anti-war message
to it.

2. Please forward this email to as many people as you
think might be interested in joining this protest. Mr
Howard's mailout is already on its way to practically
every Australian - but email can still beat it!
