The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. @BruceKGagnon

Come join the Asia-Pacific warmongers!

It is bad enough that Australia has climate rogue status due to its fossil fuel exports but now the Liberal-National government wants Australia to become one of the world’s top ten arms exporting countries! 

On May 10, several peace groups organised protest at Darling Harbour, the venue of 2022 Indo Pacific Expo naval arms bazaar in Sydney. Speakers at the rally included: Nick Deane, a member of the Independent and Peaceful Australia Network, Marrickville Peace Group and the Sydney Anti-AUKUS Coalition; former Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon; Alexander Brown, a member of Wollongong Against War and Nukes; Alexander is a member of Wollongong Against War and Nukes; Lynda Forbes Hunter Peace Group; Warren Smith, Deputy National Secretary of the Maritime Union of Australia; Pip Hinman, from Sydney Stop The War Coalition and the Socialist Alliance; Jake Lynch, Associate Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Sydney, and the Patron of BDS Australia; Nick, Communist Party of Australia; and Wendy Bacon, academic, investigative journalist and activist. Patrick Harte performed several anti-war songs.
