The 17th November marks 10 years since the former Barnett Government lifted the ban on uranium mining in WA

Hi everyone

The 17th November marks 10 years since the former Barnett Government lifted the ban on uranium mining in WA.   We are so delighted to say that there are still no uranium mines operating in WA.

You have been a big part of the campaign to keep WA nuclear free and today we can celebrate that there is still no operating uranium mines in WA. It is a massive thanks to you that WA remains clean from uranium mining and is still nuclear free.  We hope you can join us to acknowledge this great effort!

Please join us to celebrate on Saturday 17 November from 5.30pm at the Perth Waldorf School with jazz by Pete Jeavons Trio, food, drinks, and yellowcake (that is safe!) and pay tribute to the communities who stand strong, to the CCWA campaign and to the stunning country that remains nuclear free.  All welcome but please for catering purposes RSVP here. Or call 0401 909 332, or via email ka.garlick@ccwa.org.au    More information here.

Please note that this event is part of CCWA’s Awards Ceremony hosted by Prof. Carmen Lawrence and Piers Verstegen to also acknowledge the great work people in our community are doing to create a better world.

If anyone is looking for a new T-shirt or Hoodie for yourself or as a present then flick me an email.  You can pick up from Hilton, WA or we can mail to you 😉

We have the Walkatjurra Walkabout design by Vicky Abdullah (one of the Traditional Owners on the Yeelirrie court case)  This is on black T-shirt (all sizes)

We also have Shavi’s Lizard design on Black T-shirts (all sizes) and Hoodies (most sizes)

If you haven’t seen our new animation … please watch and share the short 2 min video Uranium: West Australia under threat to make uranium mining extinct – not WAs unique species.

DONATE TO THE SUPREME COURT CHALLENGE 

Recently we have been ordered to pay 50% of court costs, a combined total of $63,408 from Cameco and the State Government. This is outrageous but thanks to people like yourselves who care about protecting country and species, we can cover these costs!

Together we have raised a massive $45,250 which means we have surpassed our $45,000 target!

We are still waiting for the dates of the upcoming case in the court of appeals, but we will need to raise more money for this to keep progressing through the legal system.

Click here to donate today and please share far & wide. 

Please support this case with your donation today to help us protect Yeelirrie and defend WA’s environmental laws.
