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.

On November 16th please come and join with community representatives from the Pilbara and Goldfields who are fighting against uranium mining projects, come and hear about the struggle to protect country and culture against nuclear threats. We will also have a private screening of the short film “Walking for Country.” There will be bar and nibbles.

This is a great opportunity to hear first hand from the communities most under pressure and under threat from this toxic trade.  Register here
Take action and support Aboriginal Communities fighting against uranium mining in WA.
Friday, November 18th
10.30am – 12.00
10 Kings Park Rd, West Perth

This Action will start at the Annual General Meeting of Vimy Resources (behind plans to mine uranium at Mulga Rock) and will finish at Parliament House of WA.

There are three uranium proposals currently going through environmental assessment – in November we expect that the Office of the Appeals Convenor and the Environment Minister will be reaching their decision. Now more than ever we need your support out on the street to show support for a nuclear free WA.
