Peace groups have used the 76 year anniversary of the United States' bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan to demand the federal government sign the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Kerry Smith reports.
The invasion of a Iraq was a flagrant violation of the United Nations Charter and the invaders’ justification was based on lies. Eighteen years on the calls for justice continue, writes Bevan Ramsden.
A People’s Inquiry to examine the United States-Australia alliance — its costs and consequences — and to canvas alternatives has been launched, writes Bevan Ramsden.

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.
More than 60 peace activists gathered outside the Robertson Barracks, which houses 2500 United States Marines, to ask them to leave on August 3 .
The action, which included asking the marines to share tea and biscuits, took place during the "Australia at the Cross Roads" conference organised by the Independent and Peaceful Australia Network (IPAN).

Beginning on September 26, International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons, hundreds of peace activists converged on the Pine Gap Joint Defence Facility, less than 20 kilometres from Alice Springs, to expose its role in war, surveillance and nuclear targeting.
