Would you fly our doctors using money from the arms trade?
Israel’s largest military equipment company, Elbit Systems, have been a target for successful divestment campaigns worldwide for their role in continuing the illegal occupation of Palestinian Territories.
Thanks to a deal brokered by the NSW state government, Elbit Systems will run a commercial flight simulator centre on the NSW Dubbo base of the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Elbit will contribute $10 million towards this training centre and will control the establishment, operations, training services and maintenance of the centre within the base. As a commercial enterprise Elbit will also train other clients at this facility.
Don’t make medicine a deadly occupation.
PSNA have written an open letter to the Royal Flying Doctor Service requesting that they immediately reconsider the arrangement with Elbit.
