The Israeli Government’s most recent expansion further into the West Bank denies basic rights to Palestinians, and the government of Australia is conspicuously silent amid near universal international condemnation, the Australian Greens said today.
On his first day back in the senate chamber, Australian Greens Co-Deputy Leader and Foreign Policy Spokesperson Senator Scott Ludlam outlined the Greens position on the Trump administration and Australia’s alliance with the United States in a late night adjournment speech.
Senator Peter Whish-Wilson: The Greens initiated this inquiry into the joint strike fighters. It was a most enlightening Senate inquiry into a $60 billion procurement program by the Department of Defence into the joint strike fighter. Four words that would best encapsulate this acquisition of the joint strike fighters would be 'too big to fail'.
