Australian issues

Australia has a strong history and role in the military and nuclear industry.

We have foreign military facilities in central Australia and dotted along our coast line. Our military alliances with countries such as the United States heavily influence our position in the region and the global politic.

Our own arms industry is growing at a rapid rate.

And many of these issues, along with the nuclear industry, have a direct and disproportionate impact on our indigenous communities.

MAPW monitors and campaigns on these issues as needed.
