A public rally to symbolically destroy the Australian Military Sales Catalogue took place on June 30, outside the Queen Victoria Building. Nick Deane started a small (and safe) fire for this purpose and the catalogue was destroyed page by page.
The catalogue is published by the government, for the purpose of promoting the sale of Australian-made military equipment and weapons to overseas nations. Minister for Defence Industry, Christopher Pyne MP, has expressed the ambition of Australia joining the ‘Top Ten’ global armaments suppliers. View the YouTube video of the event here.
