David Shoebridge: ‘Australia must stop arming Israel’

March 15, 2024

Green Left's Suzanne James talks to New South Wales Greens Senator and Greens defence spokesperson David Shoebridge about Australia‘s arming of Israel.

They discuss the increasingly prolific arms industry, based in Australia and the lack of transparency and compliance around taxpayer-funded defence and munitions contracting.

Through sheer persistence Shoebridge has managed to found out more about Australia’s secretive arms industry that, he said, is more secretive than the United States.

He discussed how Labor and its weapons contractors use data and national security to deny liability.

Shoebridge also summarises the legal status of whistleblower Julian Assange’s appeal and the postponement of whistleblower David McBride’s sentencing.
