Next week, Brisbane will host the biggest defence exhibition in the southern hemisphere.

The Albanese government promised to match the previous’ government commitment of $270 billion in 10 years for Defence.

A group of activists will start protesting tomorrow against the government’s commitment, and they say this money could be better spent on climate change, human rights, Indigenous issues, and more.
