Human Rights… not another military pact
International Human Rights Day is a day to reflect on the human rights issues and act to bring justice to those issues.
This year we are focusing on AUKUS and Australia’s strengthening military alliances with the US and UK.There have been activists and campaign/political groups across the country organising since the early morning announcement of AUKUS.
We have already seen actions in other cities across the country as well as online events with hundreds of participants.
Join us on Friday December 10th to hear from amazing speakers, live music performances and razor sharp comedy.This event will be linking up with the refugee action taking place at the Park Hotel please see the page discussion for details of that event and national anti-AUKUS actions.This is part of a national weekend of actions against AUKUS.
We encourage all those attending who can to be vaccinated against covid-19, to wear masks in crowds and not to attend if you have any covid symptoms.
If you can’t attend but want to support please post messages of support on social media and get involved how you can.It’s Friday night in Melbourne with speakers, music and you good things.
Join MC Tom Ballard, Scott Ludlam, Liz Turner, Jacob Grech & Combat Wombat to say NO to AUKUS.
FRIDAY AT 4:30 PM – 6 PM
RALLY: NO AUKUS, NO nuclear subs, NO war with China
The government’s announcement of AUKUS, a new military pact with the US and the UK, along with nuclear submarines for Australia, has greatly increased tensions with China. These moves are provocative and dangerous. The war which our leaders are preparing for would be catastrophic. It must not occur.
Prime Minister Morrison has consulted with the US and the UK, but not the Australian People. WE MUST SPEAK OUT!
