Work bee’s, Celebrations and things to do…

Saturday 11th August 7.30pm – Wax Lyrical  – a party/fundraiser at Lucy, Laura, Ailsa, Jez and AC’s house, see attachment

Sunday 12th August 1pm – Kitchen Truck Workbee!  AC and Nez’s house in Shenton park (get in contact with Laura for address 0421 816 846)

This is definitely one of those the-more-the-merrier tasks!  It will involve cleaning out the kitchen truck, maybe having to change a tyre, and then starting to load the food/equipment that has already arrived into the truck.  We will also be constructing our bush toilet 😉

Monday 13th August – Robbie and Laura going down to Nannup to collect the 22 seater bus!

Morning of Tues 14th August – Cash n’ Carry Shopping trip

At the moment, Lucy, Nez and Laura are up for this challenge.  All eager are welcome to join!

Evening of Tues 14th August – NEXT BUMP MEETING 5.30pm Cons Council of WA, Lotteries House City West.  We are having our meeting before hand (5.30-6.30) and then a workshop by EmpowerWA regarding fostering community engagement.  Definitely a good thing to come along to!!

Morning of Friday 17th August – Press conference at Lotteries House (this is just a chance for media to do interviews and touch base and get linked in before we head off to start the walk, we have speakers sorted already from the Walkatjurra Walkabout  affiliated groups – just keeping you in the loop)

Afternoon of Friday 17th August – Shopping trip for food (including fresh produce) to the Organic Collective in Hilton.  Lucy and Laura.

Night of Friday 17th August – Lizard’s Revenge Dinner and Information Night @ Earthwise, 315 Bagot Rd, Subiaco, Perth 6.30pm.  Join BUMP and the unnamed collective for a reportback and discussion on Lizard’s Revenge, including a history of the Roxby Downs uranium mine; photos and video; more information on the convergence and how to support those arrested at Lizard’s Revenge; and where to go from here in stopping the expansion of the Olympic Dam mine and uranium mining in Western Australia.Dinner will be provided, but you’re also welcome to bring food to share. If you can, please give a donation to help support those arrested. See facebook event page:

Monday 20th August 9.30am East Perth – Walkatjurra Walkabout heads off to begin the journey!

  • Another job – Making up “Welcome” packages for walkers – including Toro Energy Alternative Report, Yellowcake country, Let the Facts Speak, media release, Climate of hope etc. – Nez has volunteered to do this
  • Also keep in mind we might need people who are willing to billet interstate walkers for a night on the 19th August.  Think we’re sorted at the moment for places to stay for people but keep an eye out for shout outs at the last min!
  • Volunteer task that I forgot that would be good to do if anyone’s interested would be to make up a calendar for the walk period, and add events / actions / anniversaries that will be happening while we are on the walk that are linked (linked protestor court cases, environmental decisions, peace anniversaries, Stop Lynas Save Malaysia actions etc etc etc!)  There is a bit of a calendar on the FoE website for anti-nukes stuff happening around the country I think, ANAWA might also have a yearly calendar with things like this marked out.  Might be good to have an initial crack, then set up as a google calendar where people can add stuff to before we head off on the 20th so we have a base.  Solidarity!  J

We still need a big cooking pot that can be used on fire – get in touch with Laura (0421 816 846, walk4country@gmail) if you have one we can borrow!
