Room: MA 651
Independent and Peaceful Australia Network (IPAN)
An exploration of the importance of building (inter-)national campaigns aimed at highlighting the threat of foreign military bases to peace and security everywhere, including the human rights of people in the localities of the bases. Workshop will be led with a short history of the US communication bases in Australia, their critical role in facilitating aggressive wars in every corner of the globe, and the long people’s campaign against these bases. Workshop will show some ways of building successful campaigns at a national level, as well as how we build real and useful international ones around this issue.
