Moratoriums, The Draft
Resistance Union and The Revitalisation Of Christianity Movement
"At the height of the Vietnam
War, Pat joined the draft resistance movement. In the full knowlege
that the inevitable result was to be an 18 months prison sentence,
he publicly refused to register for military service; and took
the further provocative action of presenting himself to the Draft
board as an anti-war activist . Proceedings were immediately instituted
against him. In the period leading up to his trial, he and his
brothers played a number of large anti-war rallies in and around
Sydney, notably at Victoria Park and The Domain. He also appeared
at 'demos' at universities in Brisbane and across Regional NSW.
