Don't fly our doctors with arms trade money

Would you fly our doctors with money from the arms trade?

The Royal Flying Doctor Service needs support, but not from an arms manufacturer whose weapons have destroyed countless numbers of innocent lives.

Please sign this petition to ask the Royal Flying Doctor Service, South Eastern Section to reconsider their association with the Israeli arms manufacturer, Elbit Systems, who is internationally recognised as being complicit in numerous ongoing and serious violations of international human rights law.

This campaign and  petition has been organised by the  Palestine Support Network Australia Inc. of which AFOPA is a member.
