Activists from the Independent and Peaceful Australia Network (IPAN) in Geelong Victoria have been holding speak-outs, rallies and pickets against AUKUS, against the militarisation of education, and against the genocide in Gaza.

The people of Geelong have a lot of crosses to bear, but having Richard Marles, deputy Prime Minister and Minster for Defence as their local MP is an insult to the working people of this city. Marles has become the focus of much of the protest actions of IPAN. Corio and Norlane, two of the most disadvantaged suburbs in the entire country, are within his electorate.

The regular protests include members of the Communist Party  as well as other committed peace activists. One group of veteran activists has letterboxed thousands of homes in Geelong, pointing out Marles’ complicity in the war industry, and the drive to war. The actions will continue, for as long as Marles and the ALP government continue selling us out to AUKUS and the USA’s drive to war.
