International Solidarity Day for Yemen: Electro Optic Systems (EOS) has been selling a smart killing camera into Middle Eastern markets: both to Saudi Arabia and UAE. Peace Pilgrims, with Quakers for Peace, teamed up with Wage Peace in Australia, an affiliate of World BEYOND War, to protest exports at their newly acquired subsidiary in Brisbane. We reminded workers they now worked for an arms dealer.

#MakingaKilling: Wage Peace is gearing up to #DisruptLandForces June 1-3, Land Forces being a weapons expo in Brisbane, Australia, where the killing deals are done. The focus of the latest protest (see photo above) was on Rheinmetall. Both EOS and Rheinmetall are sponsors for the Land Forces expo. Both sell already to Indonesia which is committing human rights abuses in West Papua as it enforces extraction via U.S. corporations from traditional lands. More than 25 people, our friends, have been killed in the last 6 months. People we know. All major weapons companies are now operating from every city in Australia. Boeing sells its attack helicopters to Australia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Want to get involved in Australia? Send action ideas and feedback to info@wagepeaceau.org.

The above photos is from a half-day event organized by WBW in Douala, Cameroon, on January 30th. Our members living in Douala invited representatives from leading organizations in the locality. The objective was to present our movement and the contributions it can make in the reconstruction of peace in Cameroon.
