Aidex '91: inside the Australian arms trade
— March 03, 2008
Aidex '91 documents the protests against the Aidex Arms Trade "Fair" held in Canberra, Australia in 1991. It also investigated the politics of Australian weapons trading in the Asia-Pacific region.

There is soon to be another, so perhaps now is a good time to revisit this history for learnings.
