On today's episode of Dirt Radio, Elyse spoke to Pat Simons and Gem Romuld who joined a rally on Saturday 7th May 2023 at Port Kembla on Dharawal Country, NSW. The rally was in opposition to a proposed nuclear submarine base as part of the federal government's AUKUS deal. Community, union groups and activists joined together to say no to nuclear subs, and yes to peace and climate justice.
