Bugger the Olympics -- I swell up with pride when I see my fellow Australians take on the world as so few others have...-DR

High school students Ben Leffley and Daniel Holmes travelled for three hours from Lithgow, west of the NSW Blue Mountains, to attend the rally.

Mr Leffley, 18, said the war in Iraq was the biggest motivation for him to join the protest, and he did not believe mooning was the best way to oppose it.

"We've come here because we really believe what George Bush and John Howard are doing is not right," he said.

''(The protest) was good, though probably not the most effective way.''
But Mr Holmes, 17, said mooning was an excellent way of attracting attention to a cause.

"It may be somewhat symbolic but it's more the fact that it's raising awareness ... people are going to want to find out why we're showing our arses and that will raise awareness," he said.
