Four Uranium Mines approved in Western Australia

Hi Everyone…

Yesterday we heard the disgraceful news of a serious broken promise by WA Labor to allow the four uranium projects in WA to proceed – Yeelirrie, Wiluna, Mulga Rock and Kintyre.  This terrible decision is a betrayal of the many people, communities, Traditional Owners, trade unions, churches, and environment groups who placed their faith in Labor to keep WA uranium free.

KEEP WA URANIUM FREE SNAP ACTION
Join us next Thursday 29 June at 8am Parliament House, Perth
Facebook event site  PLEASE INVITE & SHARE:
We have kept the uranium in the ground for this long and we will continue to stand in solidarity with Traditional Owners and communities to keep Western Australia nuclear free.  Join us next Thursday 29 June at 8am Parliament House, Perth for an KEEP WA URANIUM FREE SNAP ACTION.

The McGowan Government may think it is OK to let some of the worst decisions in the state’s history stand, but communities, environment groups, workers and Traditional Owners certainly won’t be backing down in our fight to prevent this bad decision turning into a series of toxic and polluting uranium mines.

Keep the pressure on the Labor Government to stop uranium mining. It’s up to us to stop four uranium mine projects that currently threaten special desert environments and cultural heritage sites. SO LETS KEEP ACTIVE NOT RADIOACTIVE!

CAN YOU GIVE AN HOUR OR TWO
This Friday could you come in to CCWA at West Perth and help make phone calls to let people know about the action at Parliament next Thursday..

If you haven’t seen the video from Janice Scott – Spinifex woman and her message to Labor – please check it out here and send your message to Labor letting them know that their decision to allow WA uranium mines to proceed on Aboriginal lands was a clear broken promise and a kick in the guts for communities and the environment.

Join Janice and individuals across WA and send your own photo message to the new Government!

Janice’s call to action could not be clearer: “Let’s stand strong against uranium mining. This thing can only be stopped if we all come together and stand strong against it.”

Keep Western Australia nuclear free

Hi Everyone…

The Walkatjurra Walkabout for this year is now full…  If you still want to come you will have to arrange your own transport out…  Or register here to go on our waiting list and if a spare spot comes up we will let you know.

As we wait patiently for the Labor Party to make their decision on uranium mining in Western Australia lots of people are sending messages and selfies to the labor party encouraging them to make the right decision and implement a ban on uranium mining.

Join Janice and individuals across WA and send your own photo message to the new Government!

Janice’s call to action could not be clearer: “Let’s stand strong against uranium mining. This thing can only be stopped if we all come together and stand strong against it.”

Janice Scott is a powerful voices for the Spinifex people who are fighting to protect their country from uranium mining. The Spinifex people settled in WA at Cundeelee station in the 1950s as refugees from the Maralinga British Atomic weapons test in SA. They have lived and practiced law and culture in the area around Mulga Rock since then. They know the stories for that country and have used those areas for generations. Janice and her family and other Spinifex people love that country like it is their own, they have looked after it and are worried that the nuclear cycle threatens their home again.

 

We look forward to seeing a lot of you out on the Walkatjurra Walkabout this year
