Rally: Defend peace not war
The Federal Government remains committed to big military spending – currently over $80 million every day. Australia's military spending will continue to be the highest regionally and, per capita, second only to the USA, the world's biggest military spender.
There are moral, social and economic reasons to transfer part of Australia’s military spending to meet outstanding public health needs such as the critical shortage of nurses that is predicted to hit 109,000 by 2025.
Join with others to demand spending on health not war.
