Peace is Union Business! Time to Declare Independence!

Australia needs an independent foreign policy based on pursuit of peace, solidarity and international justice. The relatively recent decision to permanently base US troops on Australian soil in Darwin needs to be revisited and reversed if we are to have truly independent foreign relations.

It is important that unions and working people generally take an interest in and democratic control over our international relationships rather than leaving it to self-serving elites, warmongers and the Trump-led United States.

Hear from union activists, leaders and activist academics on how we can change the system in relation to international affairs.

Speakers include Jacquie Carovski (AMWU), Anthony Ashbolt (Wollongong Uni), Warren Smith (MUA) and Arthur Rorris (SCTLC).

When: 6pm – 8pm, Thursday 4 July 2019

Where: Sydney Trades Hall, 377 Sussex Street, Sydney, Australia 2000.
