Independent and Peaceful Australia Network
The Independent and Peaceful Australia Network is calling on the Australian government to stop funneling billions of dollars into offensive weapons for unjust United States-led wars, and invest instead in the health and safety of people and the environment.
As the USA and its misguided allies foment tensions with China, the spectre of war looms closer. The pro-US right wing forces in Australia are incessantly "beating the drums of war".
We need to make it clear that the majority of Australians have no appetite for another senseless war. Especially a war which will most likely be like no other.
What does AUKUS mean for Australia?
AUKUS is a military pact (Australia, UK, US) increasing the threat of a major US-led war with China.
AUKUS will bring nuclear warships into Australian ports, risking the safety of people and the environment.
Nuclear submarines will divert more than $100 billion of people’s taxes away from public health care, education, social services and the environment.
