Disrupt Land Forces – FESTIVAL OF RESISTANCE

Jangan bunuh kami lagi! Get your armies off our bodies! 

Hey Workers!

Disrupt Land Forces FESTIVAL OF RESISTANCE is ON from May 28 – June 3 in Meanjin-Brisbane. Stand, dance and make art with us at Brisbane Convention Centre to get in the way of arms dealers like Boeing, Thales, Rheinmetall, EOS and Elbit. Weapons corporations are #MakingAKilling by #ExportingTerror to West Papua, Palestine, Myanmar, Colombia and Yemen.First Nations peoples are resisting militarism and extractivism to protect country and culture the world over. This is our chance to stand up for peace and climate justice, to stop war crimes where they start – in the corporate boardrooms of Land Forces.
Sacred Fire: Disrupt Land Forces kicks off with First Nations storytelling/truthtellingon Friday May 28 at the Sacred Fire, Musgrave Park. Hosted by sovereign people of the Yuggera Tribe.

Programme: Saturday night we host a concert in Jagera Hall. There will be workshops in art, dance, theatre and non-violent fun all weekend, with roving actions on Sunday and Monday around Meanjin.

Tuesday at 7am we turn up the volume with a mass rally to disrupt the ‘VIP Breakfast’ opening event of the Land Forces killing expo.

All day Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will see disruptive and creative actions around the Brisbane Convention Centre, as the arms dealers and politicians come and go, wine and dine and shake hands on war crimes.
