    Protests will greet Blair in Australia

    The Australian reports that Blair will be getting a cold welcome from many in Australia:

    While hundreds of anti-war protesters are promising to give the British Prime Minister "the welcome he deserves", the Greens have invited Terry Hicks, the father of captured Australian David Hicks, to be their guest for the 30-minute speech.

    Greens senator Kerry Nettle said she had invited Mr Hicks to meet Mr Blair, whose Government is challenging a British High Court ruling to grant David Hicks British citizenship, which had given him hope of release from Guantanamo Bay. "I am proud to have Terry as my guest and in doing so give him the opportunity to see Mr Blair and perhaps have a few moments to ask for his help to save his son from the cruel US political prison," Senator Nettle said.
