Peace protesters target Rocky's iconic bulls
PEOPLE at Peace Convergence took the opportunity to re-brand Rockhampton's iconic beef country bull statues as Talisman Sabre begins its military activity in the region.
In a playful gesture, Rockhampton's bulls were decorated with peace signs and messages.
Rockhampton could now be Australia's peace-a-bull capital instead of a military training area.
Rockhampton, the major centre that services the military exercise, is the beef capital of Australia. Large concrete bulls dot the town and are visible on its major thoroughfares.
Peace Convergence stands against the human, environmental, social justice costs and high "steaks" political ramifications of conducting these large-scale military exercises in our region.
