Marles and Thales: a match made in the military industrial complex, 01.02.23.
This is what Defence Ministers and Foreign Ministers do. They swan around the world on tax payer funded junkets arranging the transfer of public money to private corporations, aka selling weapons.
Gunpowder, manufactured by Thales, in Australia, will fuel the disaster that is the war in Ukraine. We pay for this climate and humanitarian catastrophe now, through our taxes, and for decades to come, through climate collapse and war trauma.
THERE IS NO END TO THE HARM THAT WEAPONS DO.
Gunpowder will not keep us safe. Gunpowder will not keep Ukraine safe. The people of Ukraine and Russia are united in wanting the war to STOP and the dialogue to begin.
Our elected representatives, meanwhile, are wining and dining in Paris to gain contracts for one of the most corrupt companies in the military industrial complex – and that is a VERY high bar.
Thales: turning our future to dust.
Fuck you Marles.
Fuck you Thales.
May your falacies explode, your gunpowder never.
