"Walk away from Uranium Mining"
August 20th - October 30th 2011
Australia has over 30% of world uranium reserves and is facing an unprecedented uranium mining expansion.
This walk will begin from a proposed uranium mine site - the first step in this destructive industry.
Come and listen to the Indigenous people who will be directly affected by this mine.
The Walk for a Nuclear Free Future is a grassroots awareness raising and action based campaign in solidarity with the Aboriginal people and the land to ban uranium mining in Western Australia. p>
People of all ages, backgrounds and cultures are invited to come together to walk the land and live in community sharing responsibilities. The walk will bring people together from all over the world to walk (or bike ride) from community to community as an effective way to educate ourselves and the public on the nuclear industry.
We want to tell the public, governments and industry to WALK AWAY from URANIUM MINING as it is an expensive, toxic industry which produces radioactive waste and weapons usable material.
The walk will begin on the 45th anniversary of the Wave Hill Walkoff in which Vincent Lingiari in 1966 led a walk off on Gurindji Land about wage rights and land rights. We will remember the success and the struggle that continues today of the fundamental issue about Aboriginal traditional lands.
This is a non-violent action that will highlight the deadly & dangerous effects of uranium mining and create dialogue with the public to end the uranium cycle, promote renewable energy and rid the world of nuclear power & weapons.
