Thu 7th Oct 2021, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm AEDT

Event description

Australia plans to develop a new fleet of nuclear-powered submarines as part of the new AUKUS trilateral military pact between Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom. This has been described as an act of nuclear proliferation. The pact will increase the US military footprint and troop deployment in Australia, with these nuclear-powered submarines just the thin edge of the wedge. 

The Chinese government has already responded with the threat that Australia is now a nuclear target.

On Thursday 7 October 6.30-8pm Renegade Activists Action Force (RAAF) will host an online public forum for a national response to this issue, featuring former Western Australian Senator Scott Ludlum, author Guy Rundle, Professor of international and political studies at the University of New South Wales, Clinton Fernandes and long standing anti-nuclear campaigners Felicity ‘Flick’ Ruby, Dimity Hawkins, Jacob Grech and Dave Sweeney. Breakout rooms will enable you to share ideas for actions to resist AUKUS in your local community. 

A follow up online gathering will take place in the weeks following this event for local groups to check in and share progress. 

This event is taking place on stolen Aboriginal land that was never ceded. Always was, always will be.
