Australia's arms industry

Murky business: Australia's defence industry is growing, but at what cost? by Antony Loewenstein

This year's Avalon Air Show in Geelong was the first chance for the public to see the long-delayed Joint Strike Fighter in action. At a cost of at least $100 million per aircraft, Canberra is slated to spend $17 billion on 72 F-35s in the coming years.

War is a Health Issue - Melbourne University must end collaboration with arms manufacturer Lockheed Martin

Following the announcement by Melbourne University that it will be collaborating with weapons manufacturer Lockheed Martin, the MAPW Student Group has written to the university calling for the partnership not to go ahead.

As medical students, they are concerned that any association with such a company, implicates the university in the development of weapons which kill and effect the health of those who survive there use.

MAPW Student Group is also requesting a meeting with the university to put their case. Watch out for more updates soon.

In the meantime, read the MAPW Student Group letter below.

STOP the ARMS TRADE at AVALON Air Show

Avalon Air Show used to be just an air show, and now it promotes military might and weapons dealing. An expanding arms trade ultimately harms communities and nations. Please return it to just an air show, and stop the arms trade being promoted at this event.
