The Morrison government recently announced that it will spend over $90 billion to purchase nuclear submarines that will undermine friendly and trusting international relations.
This has launched a much needed discussion about how we as a nation want to engage with the world.
But the many voices for peace have been missing from this debate.
It's a travesty that any discussion about peace and nonviolence is ignored and dismissed by a hawkish and bullying government, a timid Labor opposition, and a media establishment who can't seem to envision anything other than the status quo.
That’s why we are presenting a conversation on peace and nonviolence in Australian foreign policy, co-hosted with the Green Institute and the Medical Association for the Prevention of War.
Join Nobel Peace Prize laureate Dr Sue Wareham, former Senator Scott Ludlam, nonviolent conflict resolution expert Felicity Gray, WagePeace activist Margaret Pestorius and Green Institute Director and our candidate for Canberra, Tim Hollo, to discuss what it would actually look like to have an approach to international relations in contemporary Australia that centred peace and nonviolence.
