If anyone would like to join with the Byron Environment Centre (BEC) to counter the current war-mongering we’re witnessing, please let us know. We’re creating an arts collective as a celebration of peace, life and love with art and music. A Call to Arts in Railway Park, find us on social media.
I’m referring to the recent military posturing and provocation around Taiwan where one miscalculation could result in war between nuclear powers. Although I think it’s far more likely that after being used by the USA for their war-mongering, Taiwan, like Australia, will be thrown under the bus by them.
It’s getting serious. China have always drawn the line at US attempts to put aside the internationally agreed One China policy, and quite reasonably see the US’ current militarisation of Taiwan and the South China Sea as deliberately provocative. If the USA in their pretence of ‘Global Peacekeeping’ is allowed to get away with their war-mongering it may well escalate to nuclear war, and nobody wins.
As the war clouds gather, maybe it’s time to give peace a chance. It makes far better economic sense for the majority of us, whilst war-mongering only benefits the few. It will take a loud world-wide response to drown out the war drums, but it doesn’t have to be more sabre-rattling noise. We can have celebrations of peace, life and love with art and music in Railway Park, Byron. Mock the war-mongers from an iconic location.
