Anger at Corby case affects Red Cross

From the North Queensland (Australia) Townsville Bulletin:

HUNDREDS of residents across the twin cities refused to donate to this year's Red Shield doorknock if their money benefited Indonesia.

Collectors were stunned by the backlash over the Schapelle Corby sentencing and had to continually assure people their money would stay in Australia.

Townsville's Salvation Army appeal was unlike any Captain Bruce Harmer had ever experienced.

"We let people know that all money collected in Townsville would stay in Townsville," he said.

Australians as well as people from all over the world are outraged at the results of the case (see discussion here). There's the problem with Indonesian sentencing, Indonesian legal procedure and above all the certainty among many people that she is completely innocent.
