Australia’s defense debacle: Buying nuclear subs, war noises, and lock-stepping with the Anglo powers

Friday, 1 October 2021 - 10:00am to 10:30am

Jennifer and Jacques talk about the abrupt turn in Australia’s defence policy, with the decision to develop nuclear submarines, and enter into a new security agreement with the US and UK.         

Simultaneously we have sent out war signals to China, and offended the French by duplicitously breaking a submarine contract without notice – and France isn’t the only power we have put offside.          

Jacques and Jennifer argue we need to do address the climate crisis, and invest in people, jobs, education, health, and housing , rather than in military waste and the nuclear industry.
