Protesters in firing line

PEACE activists yesterday claimed two anti-war protesters had invaded the war games zone at Shoalwater Bay with the intention of disrupting Talisman Sabre operations.

The pair is 46-year-old Margaret Pestorius, a Cairns-based social worker and 24-year-old musician Andy Paine from Mudgee in New South Wales.

Peace convergence spokesman Graeme Dunstan said they had entered the southern end of the test facility near the Samuel Hill base and would use mobile phones to inform supporters of their progress.

Shoalwater Bay is hosting one of the largest military exercises ever staged in Australia involving thousands of Australian and US soldiers.
