Hi Everyone..

Yeelirrie needs your help!

After the appalling decision by state Environment Minister, Albert Jacob we are starting a fighting fund to protect Yeelirrie from being mined.

So if you got any spare change or big bucks donate to this chuffed
action so we can contest this terrible decision in court!

Small change can make a big difference!

Let Labor know where you stand on uranium
So close to an election it’s so important to remind Labor that their policy opposing uranium is popular – take a minute to write to your local Labor candidate and call on them to support a ban on uranium mining

After eight years of support and subsidies for uranium mining from the Barnett Government, our State remains nuclear-free. There are no operating uranium mines and no uranium projects with final approval to mine.

But with the election looming, uranium companies are knocking on the door to mine four uranium deposits on Aboriginal land – Kintyre, Yeelirrie, Wiluna, and Mulga Rock. If these mines go ahead they will put the environment, communities, workers, and cultural heritage at risk.  

The WA Labor party have a policy position opposing uranium mining and it’s time we let them know how important and popular that position is. If WA Labor win the election it’s important they take action to ban uranium mining – to get this on their agenda we need you and your support to send a message to Labor candidates and members.

Elections, Cameco and this years walk

Hi Everyone..

I’m just back from Melbourne where we had some great meetings, there is a lot of National support out there to stop Uranium mining in W.A. that is continuing to grown.

Vicky McCabe from Leonora, who is one of the co-chairs of the Australian Nuclear Free Alliance also came to Melbourne and we delivered a letter to the Federal Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg asking him to Stop the Clock on any Federal approvals and get on a plane to W.A and come sit on Country with the Traditional Owners.

Some great news out this week was that the Australian boss of Cameco (the company behind plans to mine uranium at Kintyre and Yeelirrie) is moving back to Canada!

Last week Cameco posted a net quarterly loss of C$144 million!

They also wrote off the full value of the Kintyre project – despite having State and Federal environmental approval the project is now on Cameco’s books worth $0.

Cameco continue to say that Yeelirrie is a good prospect – but we think not. We’re squirreling away over here to challenge the decision to approve Yeelirrie. In any case there is a strong indication that none of the WA uranium project are economically viable and unlikely to be for a very long time.

There is an Election forum coming up on the 2nd of March at the Perth Town Hall – where you can come and ask politicians questions about the environment priorities. You can start lodging questions now through the Facebook page here. 

The fight continues – we are still battling a Government that has approved 4 uranium mines ignoring advice from the EPA and the communities. We need to do all we can to get rid of the current Government and replace these environmental thugs..

There’s plenty to do in the lead up to the election. This is such a great time to talk to your local candidates and put this issue on the agenda! So please take a few minutes to get involved – see below for a list of really simple and easy actions you can take.

Here’s some other things you can do…

You can have your say on all of them by signing the Uranium Free Charter here.
