Well its less than a month now until the Karlamilyi walk heads off.. We have been getting lots of support with food donations and massive thanks to everyone who has made a contribution to the walk through the chuffed donation site..
If you have a few spare dollars to donate it would be greatly appreciated..
Funds raised will go to support Martu joining the walk from surrounding communities.
Donations are tax deductible. DONATE HERE
The Parnngurr Community was set up in the 1980’s during the homelands movement, as a protest camp against uranium exploration. The community here and other Martu communities are now faced with the renewed threat of uranium mining by Cameco and Mitsubishi. The community has called for a walk from their community to the proposed uranium mine through the stunning Karlamilyi National Park.
