Sam Wainwright at a Stop AUKUS - WA action earlier this year.

In March this year the Australian Government 'Defence' department announced that Western Australia will be at the forefront of Australia’s 'AUKUS Pathway', with more frequent port visits by nuclear-powered submarines from the United States beginning this year and from the United Kingdom starting in 2026.

Today our discussion of the AUKUS military pact has a focus on Western Australia where the campaign is really shaping up.  We’ll speak to long time peace and anti-nuclear campaigner and former WA Senator, Jo Vallentine and Sam Wainwright a councillor at the City of Fremantle and founding member of Stop AUKUS - WA .

Stop AUKUS - WA have joined with Walyalup Climate Action to organise an action in Pioneer Park, Freemantle on Saturday 27 May 'Fight Climate Change Not War - Nuke Free Cockburn Sound'.

Take action
Make a submission by the 26th May 2023 to the Senate Committee inquiry reviewing the Defence Legislation Amendment (Naval Nuclear Propulsion) Bill 2023 - a Bill to change our environmental and radiation protection laws to allow nuclear submarines!
