DATES : 21st – 24th September 2015
For the past 5 years, peace activists have gathered at the Swan Island Military Base in Queenscliff Victoria, for a week of nonviolently resisting the SAS’s involvement in dirty wars.
This convergence will be different – in fact we are not planning (nor will we support) any civil disobedience. We are not planning incursions. We are not planning to blockade the main gate.
This year will be a deliberate attempt to create space for activists to gather without being focused on direct action. People in the organising group are wanting to:
- reflect about actions past and what we hope for the future;
- deepen our own analysis about militarism and how to resist it;
- engage with the locals about their experiences;
- to continue to practice living as communities of resistance together.
Bookings are now open for the 2015 Swan Island Peace Convergence!

This year we are holding the first ever Swan Island Peace Classic. As part of the SIPC we will be organising a golf tournament on Thursday 24th September.
