100 Seconds to Midnight

Saturday, 22 February 2020 - 10:00am to 10:30am
Activists with banners gather for speeches on the steps of the State Library of Victoria as part of a global day of action calling for 'No War with Iran'

On January 23, 2020, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists moved the hand of the Doomsday clock to 100 seconds to midnight – the closest it has ever been.  The reasons:  a worsening nuclear threat, lack of action on climate change & the rise of 'Cyber-Enabled Disinformation Campaigns'.  

Covering all this and more, we bring you excerpts of speeches from the 'No War with Iran' rally held on the steps of the State Library of Victoria on January 25, as part of a global day of action.

Featuring Kevin Bracken (Maritime Union of Australia), Shirley Winton (Independent and Peaceful Network Australia Network), Margie Beavis (Medical Association for Prevention of War), Gurpreet Singh (Worker Student Alliance), Jacob Grech (Melbourne for Wikileaks & A Friday Rave) and Romina Beitseen (Campaign for International Cooperation & Disarmament & Alternative News).

Saturday 10:00am to 10:30am
