On the 4th of March 2023 in the South Australian capital of Adelaide, a group from the local Russian community and allies, conducted a "No2NATO" political rally on the steps of state Parliament. The protest was largely conducted by one senior local Australian-Russian community leader, Alexander Kozlow. The rally included statements relating to Australian neutrality, Australia's status as a vassal state of the United States of America, various wars led by the United States of America throughout its recent history, and the nature of the conflict currently in Ukraine.
Supporters of the "No2NATO" political movement seek to halt aggression by the NATO military alliance, and promote a multipolarity world order where one country, or a small group of countries, cannot attempt to rule over all others. Most supporters of the "No2NATO" movement believe that the current geopolitical structure of the world has countries belonging to 2 broad groups, the collective west and the BRICS+ countries. The collective west includes the United States of America, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and European Union countries. BRICS+ countries principally include Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, but also include many other partner countries such as many member states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the Commonwealth of Independent States, and many African countries.
The "No2NATO" movement plans to hold future political rallies in as many Australian cities as possible, and they are considering the potential of weekly actions until further notice in order to maximise the promotion of their message.
