WALKATJURRA WALKABOUT 2013
Walkatjurra Walkabout 2012
Last year the Anti-Nuclear movement of Western Australia joined with
global peace group Footprints for Peace in an exciting campaign to
re-instate the ban on Uranium Mining in Western Australia and
re-invigorate Australian activists to get involved. On the 20th
August 2011 over 100 people including traditional custodians, senators,
state members of Parliament, journalists, lawyers, families with young
children and people from North America, New Zealand, France, and
throughout Australia gathered just outside remote Wiluna to begin a
ten-week walk to Perth.
Welcome to our Walk for a Nuclear Free Future campaign
For over a decade Footprints for Peace has organised annual walks, runs and bike rides around the world that has brought thousands of people onto the streets to create positive change through peaceful action.
Walk for a Nuclear Free Future aims to bring people together to walk from community to community as an effective way to educate our selves and the public about the danger, destruction and waste that is threatening all life at every stage of the nuclear process.
Our purpose is to inspire, empower and mobilise people to take action not only through walking but also through creative campaigning in street theatre, music, art, public meetings, petitioning, letter writing and non-violent direct actions.
The Walk for a Nuclear Free Future will promote positive social, environmental and economical solutions for the development of renewable energy technologies including solar, wind, wave and geothermal to create a sustainable future.
We invite you to join and/or support this campaign as we walk throughout Australia, Canada, United States and Japan. The walks will follow the deadly nuclear fuel path from uranium mine sites to nuclear reactors, waste dumps and nuclear weapons sites.
Walk for a Nuclear Free Future calls for:
· respect and solidarity for Indigenous Peoples Rights
· a global ban on uranium mining
· phase out of nuclear power
· complete nuclear weapons disarmament
· responsible solutions to nuclear waste
· rehabilitation of abandoned uranium mines and nuclear facilities
· development and use of renewable energy technologies
