    2. Three projects under assessment right now
    3. Labor and Greens opposed to uranium mining
  2. Call your Labor candidates to say you support the Labor party position opposing uranium mining
    1. The Labor party position is great – but we need to make sure they keep that position
    2. So we need people like you to re-enforce that this position is popular and important
  3. Come to one of our events in November to hear from local communities who are under threat from you mining and stand in solidarity with them to oppose this toxic trade
    1. We have a public meeting Wednesday 16th Nov – Navy Club in Fremantle where you can hear from community members
    2. Small action – from the office on one of the uranium companies Vimy – to Parliament to walk together with communities in opposition to uranium mining.
  4. Thank you for your support for this campaign – we’re nearly there…. Please get in touch with Labor or come along to one of the events….

 
Here’s the e-mail we’ll be sending out soon….

Right now there are three uranium mine proposals under consideration by the WA Government. The good news is that after 8 years since the ban on uranium mining was lifted in WA there are no operating uranium mines, the WA Labor party and the Greens party are opposed to uranium mining and election is around the corner.

Now more than ever we need your support to keep WA uranium free. We have some events coming up that we would love you to come along to Community Voices” and “Action for a Nuclear Free WA”.

You can also have a huge impact by calling your local candidates to show your support for reintroducing the ban on uranium mining in 2017. You can find your Labor candidates here, and your Labor MPs here, you can find your Greens Members here,  your Liberal candidates here and your Nationals candidates here. Or you can send a message to the leaders by signing the Uranium Free Charter here.

Urgent support needed in November

Hi Everyone..

We don’t usually put out the urgent call for support but there is some really special and important events coming up in November.

There will be some community members coming to Perth to talk about the struggles to protect community and culture against the threat of uranium mining.

Many of them will be traveling great distances to get here and it would be great if we can all come together and show those at the forefront of the struggle to stop uranium mining in Western Australia that they have a huge amount of support from people in the city.
