Haneef: petitioning protest

by Dave Riley

Take yourself over to the Dr Haneef signature roll and cruise through the comments that append most(almost all) of the signers.

Colleagues, fellow Muslims, Indians -- from the UK and India as well as Australia & elsewhere express a viewpoint that I think may be very broad.

Father Brian Gore is among them signing on from the Philippines.

These web tools give you a great sense of community viewpoint and coalescence. And among the comments is one from Reihana Mohideen in the Philippines who writes astutely:"If you win this campaign (for Haneef's release) Howard will probably be defeated at the next election."

Thats' true, isn't it? Tell that to Kevin Rudd next time he blows into town! Even the Labor lefts have gone belly up on this one. [Spit!]

NB:An earlier petition we published on the death in custody of Mulrunji Doomadgee carries a similar sweep of anger and protest which is harnessed via the same tool.
