The Campaign Outline on Nuclear Submarines

NO NUCLEAR SUBMARINES

Campaign proposals

  1. a) Campaign plan – for all

Work to develop specific actions to involve the ALP left in the campaign; send letters to and/or ring all ALP Federal and State parliamentarians

Work to develop specific actions to involve environmental groups in the campaign

Work to develop specific actions to involve anti-nuclear groups in the campaign

Work towards a zoom rally in mid to late October

Work towards a National Day of Action in mid-December

PLUS as many of the actions listed below as possible.

  1. b) Campaign plan – in lockdown
  • Poster – needs to be designed quickly. Can be pasted up during exercise; can be done individually and/or by different centres as preferred
  • Leaflets – develop ones with local link (funding for hospital covid services, local school etc etc); maybe IPAN can produce a national one some people might prefer.
  • Letters to MPS and Senators – provide a full list of addresses; links to politicians; possibly draft a form letter
  • Letters to Morrison and Dutton — provide addresses; possibly draft a form letter
  • Letters to local newspapers — possibly draft a form letter but better to send short personal ones, with local link if possible
  • Social media campaign and use of the hashtags #HealthcareNotWarfare
    #MilitarySpendingCostsTheEarth
    #WelfareNotWarfare
    #FundPeaceNotWar
    We have to be aware that nuclear powered submarines have a component of upskilling boat building worker skills. It is very seductive for unions to swallow this bait and see it as jobs – we need to develop a sense that jobs should encourage positive growth for Australians, not in increasing killing ability.  So a hashtag like #jobsfortheworld.
  • Develop a briefing sheet to use to ring talkback radio.
  1. C) Campaign plan – no lockdown

All the above

PLUS

Weekly pickets (1-2 hours) at a suitable location

Media releases about the pickets (maybe feature quotes from different speakers)
