Melbourne activists lock down Israeli arms factory

By Nik

The Melbourne Palestine Action Group, a group consisting of activists from Whistle Blowers Australian Citizens Alliance and Renegade Activists, locked down Elbit Systems in the suburb of Port Melbourne and occupied the building’s roof covering it with a banner that reads “Elbit drones killing kids in #Gaza #BDS. Inspired by a similar action that took place in England last week, Melbournians in support of the Palestinian people in Gaza erected a replica of Israel’s apartheid wall locking the gates of Elbit Systems in the city of Port Melbourne.

Support Muckaty Traditional Owners on World Environment Day

For the past seven years there has been sustained community opposition to a federal government plan to dump Australia's radioactive waste on Aboriginal land at Muckaty in the Northern Territory.

Now Traditional Owners opposed to the dump plan are taking their concerns and their case to the Federal Court with a trial starting this week in Melbourne.
