The article focuses on one of the most frustrating tasks facing peace activists in Australia. According to the author, the problem of seeming to be negative in the demands with the focus on activities that are distant from most of homes is the frustrating task facing them. He stresses that the danger of war forms part of a threat, which cause the decline of public commitment to the peace movement in the last few years. However, Bilateral Peace Treaties offer one way of saying something positive in an area which many peace activists are beginning to face up to.
