QPLC (The Quaker Peace and Legislation Committee of Australia Yearly Meeting) has issued three papers to help keep Friends informed and provide pathways for action:


Sustainable Development Goals - Watching Brief 19-9 (October 2019)

The aim of this brief is to provide an update on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals and suggested topics for correspondence to, or meetings with, Members of Parliament.

ABC Legislation - Action Alert 19-9 (August 2019)

Legislation is currently before Parliament to add further pressure on the ABC by extending its regional coverage without sufficient extra funding. Legislation is also foreshadowed to require ‘fair and balanced’ reporting. This Alert suggests action that might be taken.

Lethal Autonomous Weapons - update - Watching Brief 19-8 (August 2019)

The current integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is particularly concerning with lethal autonomous weapons systems without human control on the horizon. *Update to Watching Brief 19-2*
