Tony Blair on trial in Sydney

Julia Gillard might've been chuffed after Tony Blair gave her carbon tax campaign the thumbs up, but not everyone is happy to see the former British prime minister in Australia.

Mr Blair has been on a speaking tour of the country, in part to promote his new book of memoirs.

But the Stop the War Coalition accuses Mr Blair of committing war crimes in Iraq and say by selling his book he's profiting from proceeds of crime.

To voice their concerns, the group staged a mock trial down at Sydney's Darling Harbour.

2SER's Jennifer Lush was there and prepared this report.
