peacebus.com: Graeme's September-October campaign is Close Pine Gap -  the US spy and drone base outside Alice Springs.  Graeme is working with Arrernte elder, Chris "Peltharre" Tomlins who is the traveling ambassador making a national and international call to close Pine Gap. 

 

Chris Tomlins @ the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra: “The Arrernte people have been the custodians and peaceful protectors of their country for thousands of years. Our sovereignty is contained in our songlines, stories and dances, which have been handed down over thousands of years. As the lawful custodians we are responsible for what occurs on our land and the harm it brings to the rest of the world. The activity of the facility at Pine Gap has implicated us in criminal military actions, which threatens the dignity of all people, implicates us in war crimes and generates instability and conflict around the globe as a consequence of US imperialism."

"Turn off the tv sets.  Turn towards kindness. Turn to friends who are kind to you and help extend that kindness to others. Speak up and speak out about your fears and concerns. Be visible and be heard. Make art together. Occupy public space and public imagination. Build community. Build resistance. Community resistance. Sustainable resistance.  For the Earth!"  - Graeme Dunstan AQUARIUS

 

These HEALING events evoke the various sorrows and losses of wars with spoken word, songs, dance, performance and individual storytelling says Graeme Dunstan of Peacebus.com "Participatory theatre with contributions from local performers" LAMENT For The Sorrows and Losses of War 

 

 

 

"Together we seek and find the common ground of lament.  Everyone one has a story to tell. Everyone is touched by the trauma of war and the trauma crosses generations. - Lest we forget."

 

"A veritable tsunami of ANZACery is now building," Mr Dunstan warns. "The impact of which, if not its base intention, will be to militarise Australian history and culture and to normalise war." Mr Dunstan observes that WW1 was supposed to be the war that would end all wars. But now we have endless war. "Hatred cannot cure hatred and war cannot bring peace."
