VOLUME 4: AUSTRALIAN SOVEREIGN DEFENCE & ADVANCED MANUFACTURING GROUP… WHO ARE THESE FUCKERS?

PRODUCED BY RENEGADE ACTIVISTS 2024

The thing about the masters of war, the people who make and profit from selling the weapons that kill children sheltering in their homes… and we’re not talking here about factory floor workers doing a mundane job because there is hardly any other engineering work in Austraila, but about the people who own the companies that employ them…

This is the story of a relatively new Australian weapons company: Australian Sovereign Defence and Advanced Manufacturing Group, normally referred to as ASDAM.

VOLUME 3: BACKGROUNDER ON THE SOME OF THE MAJOR COMPANIES IN THE DANDENONG REGION THAT ARE PART OF THE F-35 GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN BEING USED TO DROP BOMBS ON GAZA

PRODUCED BY RENEGADE ACTIVISTS 2024

The region around Dandenong has long been associated with light industrial engineering. As a result of trade liberalisation which began in the 1980s, many small companies were forced to close… whilst some sought to diversify into the only game left in town: the arms trade.

The three companies listed in this leaflet are by no means the only ones in the region involved in the production of weapons that are currently being used in Gaza. But they are key parts of the F-35 Global Supply Chain.

 RENEGADE SOLIDARITY AUDIO FORCE

If you’ve been to a rally, a protest or an action in Burn City since 2017 you’ve probably seen us…. and even if you haven’t; you’ve definitely heard us!

Whether its pumping tunes to detained refugees in the Refugee Hotel & Broadmeadows Detention Centre, spreading the sound along Invasion Day Rallies, or at the various protests and gatherings that are a central part of our city’s political & cultural expression, Renegade Solidarity Audio Force has been the sound behind the cause behind the noise.

A collaboration of artists, activists, djs and techies from the Solidarity Sound System and Renegade Activists Action Force, we know our way around rally logistics. We also record speeches and audio from the desk to provide to rally organisers and 3CR Community Radio for local and national broadcasting. 

From Palestine to Climate Change, from First Nations Rights to the growing Regional Militarism, we bring the decibels so that your voices and demands are undeniably clear and loud enough to penetrate the souls of the planet fuckers hiding in their corporate bunkers.

If you see us on the streets, come say hi!
