CONSCRIPTION
By Andrew Mongi
Andrew, the captain of Rockingham Estate Under-16s Football Club, is concerned that he and people of his age group might be called up for war. He think his future could be taken away from him - he doesn't want to have to shoot anyone. But it's easy for us because we believe in democracy and have the ability to oppose the Prime Minister - Saddam Hussein has killed innocent people and it's easy to forget the children who have no food.

Frau Busse
Why aren't there more men like Andrew Mongi in the world - conscious about and sensitive towards what war actually means: unguilty, helpless people dying. Peace out.
