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.”
A lot of people put a lot of hope in WA Labor and their position against uranium mining before the recent election – Traditional Owners, unionists, pastoralists, scientists, workers, and communities all strongly supported the policy to keep WA’s uranium in the ground.
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
