    Anniversary of "Rainbow Warrior" bombing

    Today is the 24th anniversary of the sinking of the Greenpeace vessel "Rainbow Warrior". The whole sorry story is probably too well-known to repeat, but those unfamiliar with the details can read them here:

    The consequences of the French nuclear tests are still being felt.

    Gordon - I've just spent some time reading through your thread about the Maralinga veteran's issue. The neglect of, and indifference towards these men (and their families) is almost beyond belief - not to mention the cover-ups and just plain lies. The saddest thing is how few of those concerned would be left alive to benefit from any compensation that did eventuate.
    - John.
