During the last few weeks the issue in most Australians minds has again been the risk of nuclear testing on our back door-step In papers on radio and television and in local gossip there has been discussion and argument of the situation Some have said no to French products Others have gone too far and sabotaged French or even French-sounding companies All the while France has maintained its front of indifference Greenpeaces passive action on Moruroa Atoll almost a re-enactment of the very similar situation in the early 1970s brought the topic into larger public awareness Attacks on French pride have caused acts like the withdrawal of their Ambassador from Australia and a scurrulous dishonest attack on Paul Keating in French newspapers last week However talk alone may be insufficient to make the French Government realise what an issue this is not only to countries in the Pacific but also all over the world Boycotting French products gives a voice for protest to every Australian citizen to show that they have enough guts to stand up against nuclear testing We can take action against something that we believe to be wrong It can be as simple as buying Australian made and owned products instead of French ones Other more complex decisions require a bit of sacrifice You may have to go without If every concerned person in Australia stood up to be counted the French would see that many are against their testing To hit a government in political conflicts is nearly always disadvantageous to the common people The politicians involved have always shored themselves up To hit the government would be to hit the people So why do it Because if we are going to stop nuclear testing we are all going to have to suffer and sacrifice some people more than others Our government is not as much on our side as we may
