On March 30, Students for Palestine organised a rally against Australian university complicit in Israel's crimes.
BAE Systems is a defence company worth $US38 billion. They make everything from assault rifles, missiles, tanks, drones, nuclear weapons, and even the shackles used in Guantanamo Bay. BAE has been targeted because of the horrifying weapons systems it sells to Israel.
RMIT University in Melbourne, through its Aerospace Engineering Department, has been in the firing line due to its role providing research and development that helps Israel's continued destruction of Palestinian lives.
The department has undertaken research and development in collaboration with BAE Systems under the research body Defence Materials Technology Centre. DMTC research is conducted for the Australian army and the weapons industry, which BAE Systems then sells on to Israel.
