What's in it for you?

What's in it for you?

For less than $300 you will be getting a guided bus tour right across Australia—the sort of trip that normally only the middle-aged, middle class tourist can afford. But it won't be just the usual tourist sight you see—besides NWC we will visit several other of the 30 odd US military and aerospace installations in Australia, plus several examples of multinational corporations stripping Australian natural resources. A pamphlet detailing everything to be seen will be available soon. And you will have the satisfaction of opposing America's second most important military base in the southern hemisphere (the most important is Pine Gap spy satellite base at Alice Springs). On return to Sydney we are hoping that Sydney radicals can jack up a quick tour of the local action, such as the Aboriginal urban community project in Redfem, and Richmond Air Force Base, the terminal for USAF Starlifter flights from Christchurch Airport.

And of course you will have a month of en route dialogue with some of Australia's well-seasoned radical activists.
