IPAN is an umbrella body to coordinate national campaigns which many of the IPAN member peace organisations can participate in.
These workshops will help to plan the focus of these campaigns.
IPAN is not alone in seeking to draw attention to the 50 anniversary of the establishment of Pine Gap. During the weeks leading up to IPAN’s AGM, forum and conference other groups are organising protests and events of their own. These will be taking place from mid-September, 2016. Interested people should make contact with whatever group catches their attention!
A welcome and invitation from the Arrente people (traditional owners of the land upon which Pine Gap has been established) can be seen at www.closepinegap.com. Activists, who will be travelling from Melbourne, have established the website https://closepinegap.org/ which gives some of the reasons for their activism and is a starting-point for anyone wishing to travel with the group.
‘Peace Pilgrims’ will be bringing a team from Cairns, Queensland. Details can be found at https://www.facebook.com/peacepilgrimsatpinegap/
http://peacebus.com/ has details of captain Graeme Dunstan’s plans for taking part in the convergence on Pine Gap and includes Chris Peltharre Tomlins’ ‘call-out’ invitation from the original owners.
