The anti-war/anti-nuclear movement may not be what it has been in the past, (millions of people marching, and direct action taking place all over the world), nevertheless, it certainly hasn’t gone away.
On 22 January 2021 nuclear weapons became illegal under International Law. Since then, there has been a considerable worldwide movement in divestment, from anything militarily related.
Here in Australia, there is significant movement in the right direction i.e. Australian Ethical, Christian Super, Future Super, Crescent Wealth, Verve Super, Local Government Super, and Bank Australia (of which we are proud part owners).
The WHO (World Health Organisation) has contacted the University of Melbourne, stating they are compromising future Medical Research Grants from WHO, owing to their association with Lockheed Martin, the largest arms manufacturer in the world.
Bishop delegate For Social Justice, Terry Brady, on behalf of the Australian Catholic Bishops, has written to the Prime Minister, urging the government to ratify the UN Treaty to Ban Nuclear Weapons. Along with the Australian Red Cross, who also support the treaty.
There is a chance, peace may come!
Love is the answer.
