Western Australia

  • The Western Australian Branch marked the 90th Remembrance Day, 11 November 2008, by co-sponsering an advertisement in the West Australian, questioning Australia's involvement in current wars, in particular in Afghanistan. See our news story.

The WA Branch meets regularly on the first Wednesday of every second month. A small but active committee of seven work on a range of issues of relevance to the WA’s 100 members, which includes a significant proportion of country members.

The branch works closely with other WA organisations promoting peace and social justice, including the Australian Network to Ban Landmines, the Anti-Nuclear Alliance of Western Australia (ANAWA); Mayors for Peace; and the Psychologists for Peace (WA branch).

Many members attend annual peace activities such as Palm Sunday, Hiroshima Day, and Landmines Awareness Week and activites are frequently organised jointly with other groups with an interest in peace and the abolition of nuclear weapons.

Active members also work at WA’s two large teaching universities, and have been important in building links with medical students. 

A local newsletter is sent to members in January, May and September
