In eerie overtones of the controversial Vietnam War (1962-72) where opponents targeted war memorials and military installations, anti-Afghan War graffiti was daubed all over the front wall of the historic Victoria Army Barracks in the heart of Melbourne, Australia
The slogans in white paint read: WHITE WASH, 8 YEARS TO(O) LONG, TROOPS OUT.
A small protest was held outside the gates of Victoria Barracks with no more than 5 or so people.
Victorian State Police were seen confiscating blue buckets with white paint. It is not known if any arrests were made or who had vandalised the historic bluestone walls of Victoria Barracks, which contains no combat troops.
Three protestors, two dressed in white jump suits and a beared gentleman held a media conference at the front gate. The bearded man said that “Afghan was becoming another Vietnam.”
