STOP THE EXERCISES | CLOSE THE BASES | END THE WARS
Wage Peace supports Peace Convergence – gatherings of peace activists from all around Australia who come together in a celebration of resistance to the biennial Talisman Saber US-Australian War Rehearsals.
Every two years, Australia hosts some of the world’s largest military operations, Exercise Talisman Saber, joint US-AUS combined force training which sees thousands of personnel engaging in land, sea and air manoeuvres: live firing, bombing practice, the use of sonar, on shore landings – and nuclear powered and nuclear-weapons-capable vessels. With support locations in cities around the country, the majority of the action takes place in Queensland, on and around the Great Barrier Reef, in the Northern Territory and in the Coral, Arafura and Timor Seas. Talisman Saber is expected to take place again in mid 2019.
