PERSPECTIVES for the anti-war movement have to be considered against the background of the perspectives of continuing war and preparations for war by the Australian ruling class and the imperialist system of which it is part. Since the second world war, Australian armed forces have taken part in wars in Korea, Malaya, Vietnam and Indo-China. More or less continuously, Australia has been involved in military operations for 20 years. These have all been imperialist in character and of a specific type — wars fought in Asia, wars fought to maintain colonialism, even if in new forms.
