During the week 3 to 11 October 2013, Sydney hosted the International Fleet Review (IFR). This review was part of the celebrations to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the entry of the first Royal Australian Navy fleet in Sydney Harbour, on 4 October 1913.
On the Monday public holiday, 7 October 2013, members of MPG and other groups gathered outside the ‘Sea Power Conference and Exposition’ in Darling Harbour. These groups came together to demonstrate against the sale of sophisticated weaponry in the Exhibition Centre – the serious business side of the International Fleet Review.
