WALKATJURRA WALKABOUT

Due to some people having to cancel in the last few days there are a few spots still available  for this years Walkatjurra Walkabout.. If you would like to come out on Country to hear from Traditional Owners and see first hand the beautiful areas that this Government will allow uranium mining on then Register here to join this years Walkatjurra Walkabout

This years Walkatjurra Walkabout will be an important part of planning for the next phase of the campaign.  Come and contribute, share and learn as we walk with Traditional Owners to Keep the uranium in the ground.

Together we can still stop this

It is nearly a month since we heard the shocking news from the State Government allowing the 4 proposed uranium mines to proceed – Yeelirrie, Wiluna, Mulga Rock and Kintyre. The decision to allow these approvals to stand without so much as an inquiry to investigate them and without consulting with local communities, workers and Traditional Owners is tragic.    I really urge you all to continue to call, email, write, to the Premier, the Environment Minister and the Minister for Mines and Petroleum and your local Labor member.  See below for some contacts and suggestions.

Premier   wa-government@dpc.wa.gov.au – (08) 6552 5000
Environment Minister   Minister.Dawson@dpc.wa.gov.au – (08) 6552 5800
Mines & Petroleum Minister Minister.Johnston@dpc.wa.gov.au – (08) 6552 6700

Here is some draft text you could adapt to send to them or use as speaking points for a call: 

I’m contacting you to let you know I am disappointed by the McGowan Governments decision to allow the four proposed uranium mines in WA to go ahead. The Premier went to the election saying that uranium mines would not be allowed to proceed unless they had final approval or were in construction.  None of these projects have final approval, none are under construction – so they do not meet Labors criteria. These mines should not be allowed to proceed under a Labor Government.

In their rush to establish a uranium industry in WA, the Barnett Government created a modified and simplified approvals process for uranium projects.
This approval system for uranium has seriously compromised environmental standards while unfounded and exaggerated claims of economic benefits have been used to justify non-compliance with WA’s environmental laws.  These uranium mine proposals require rigorous assessment and not simplified fast tracking.  

Labor needs to ensure that policy decisions in relation to mining uranium are based on a rigorous process, robust review and that are evidence based.   The process needs to have a detailed assessment of the best evidence and this has not been evident in the process to date.     Consult with Traditional Owners, local communities and workers to uphold your clear and strong policy against uranium, nuclear power, and nuclear waste that I support.  

You and your party have a unique opportunity to prevent and ban uranium mining in WA and instead support a Renewable Energy Target and ensure a clean energy future for West Australians.

I urge you to take positive action and make certain that there is a rigorous approval process to ensure that WA remains nuclear free once and for all. This will create certainty and relief for communities that have endured eight years of negotiating and fighting with uranium mining companies and the Barnett 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.”

The Walking for Country Film will be showing tomorrow (Friday 14th) in Melbourne as part of the Melbourne Documentary film festival at the Nova, Lygon st, Carlton. Get along and check it out!!!

Thursday 3rd August at the Fremantle Town Hall from 6pm.
Entry is by donation and we are urging all to come down, be inspired and motivated to see how we are going to win the west from mining uranium!  The night will include the official WA premiere screening of Fremantle film maker, Reza Nezamdoust’s “Walking For Country” — a 20 minute documentary of the 2015 Walkatjurra Walkabout, which has been doing the international film festival circuit for the past year and screens this month at both the No Nuke Film Festival in Taiwan and Melbourne Documentary Festival.

International speakers from Canada, Tiawan and the United States. Stay tuned for more updates as they are confirmed but lock in the date for an awesome night!

Shirley and Lizzie Wongabong have been in town this week and have been working together with the Environmental Defenders Office (EDO) on their statement as part of the Tjiwarl Native Title holders group who have opposed the Yeelirrie uranium mine project for over 40 years.   They both continue to speak staunchly about their country and how they want the uranium left in the ground.
To keep this important work going click here for more details.

July 7 this year marked a historical day around the world as the United Nations adopted a treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons.  The very worst of weapons of mass destruction are banned as 122 countries said ‘yes’ to humanity.  The Brunch with Bishop action was great timing to now urge nations to sign onto this important treaty!  People for Nuclear Disarmament (PND) members Matt and Hannah officially handed a letter to Julie Bishops office on Monday to urge the Turnbull government to sign the treaty to ban nuclear weapons.  The treaty will be opened for signing on September 20, and will formally come into force when 50 countries have signed and ratified the document.

Attached to this letter was the United Nations draft treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons that clearly outlines the actions for nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament. The treaty requires of all ratifying countries “never under any circumstances to develop, test, produce, manufacture, otherwise acquire, possess or stockpile nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices.” It also bans any transfer or use of nuclear weapons or nuclear explosive devices – and the threat to use such weapons. For more information see the ICAN website who have been instrumental and worked tirelessly on these negotiations at the United Nations to see a world free of nuclear weapons. Thank you!

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 can come in please call K.A 0401 909 332

This is a real defining moment so please continue to ring, email, text your Local Labor member and let them know how you feel.  All contacts can be found here.

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.” 

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

Western Australia Update

You might have seen ABC reports last week claiming that the new Government will allow the four proposed uranium mines to proceed. This story has exposed a big concern but has mostly been misleading and there has been no confirmation that the Government would allow the four mine to proceed. So we still have an opportunity to stop the four.

The issue is that in the lead up to the election the Labor party stated that only mines with final approval or those under construction would be allowed to proceed. But – none of the four proposed mines – Kintyre, Yeelirrie, Wiluna or Mulga Rock – have final approval and none and under construction – none meet Labors criteria. There is a lot of uncertainty – but we know Labor’s policy position opposes uranium and we know that the comments in the ABC were from one Minister not from the party and there are a lot of people within the party who will fight to defend the anti uranium position. So now more than ever it is important to remind Labor of their position and their promise and call for a ban on uranium mining. 

Please take a moment to reach out to Labor and say that none of the four projects should go ahead and instead we need a ban on uranium mining. Please take a moment to write to the Premier, the Environment Minister and the Minister for Mines and Petroleum and your local Labor member.

Here is some draft text you could adapt to send to them or use as speaking points for a call: 

I’m contacting you to let you know I support the WA Labor policy to prevent uranium mining in WA and wish to see uranium mining banned permanently in this State. I am concerned by recent media statements that indicate Labor will let the four proposed uranium mines in WA go ahead. None of these projects have final approval none are under construction so they do not meet Labors criteria. These mines should not be allowed to proceed under a Labor Government.

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

Now that Labor has won the State election, you and your party have a unique opportunity to prevent and ban uranium mining in WA and instead support a Renewable Energy Target and a clean energy future for West Australians.

Labor has been clear and consistent on their opposition to uranium mining and the party has a clear and strong policy against uranium, nuclear power, and nuclear waste that I support. This position should be clarified and re-affirmed given recent media reports that suggest otherwise.

I urge you to make quick decisive action to end uranium mining in WA once and for all. This will create certainty and relief for communities that have endured eight years of negotiating and fighting with uranium mining companies and the Barnett Government.

Check out a new video from Senator Scott Ludlam
Our state remains uranium free.

I will be in the U.S from the middle of March and we will be doing some screenings of the Walkatjurra Walkabout film in Cincinnatti,OH, Knoxville,TN, Ashville, NC, The Smokey Mountains, TN, Albuqurque and possibly Arizona.

Dates for 2017 Walkatjurra Walkabout & Bardi Bus needs some Love

Hi Everyone..

Late last week the new Cabinet formed, we now have Stephen Dawson as our Environment Minister, Dave Kelly as our Minister for Water, Roger Cook as Minister for Health and Bill Johnson as Minister for Mines and Petroleum. Within the cabinet there are some strong anti nuclear voices who we’ve worked closely with over the years and so we are hopeful of getting strong support for a ban or uranium mining in WA or at the very least a commitment that the four proposed mines – Kintyre, Wiluna, Yeelirrie and Mulga Rock will not be allowed to proceed.

But as always it’s important to remind Labor that their opposition to uranium mining is popular. So please take a moment and write to you local Labor member welcome them and let them know you support Labors position against uranium mining and that you’re looking forward to a ban on uranium mining in WA.

Also a big to congratulations to Robin Chapple on his re-election and the election of Alison Xamon and Tim Clifford – all strong advocates for a nuclear free future.

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.

The Walk this year is still in the planning and we are hoping to have dates set in the next few weeks.. It looks like it will be in August – September, but we will let you know as soon ans we have it all sorted..

There is a T-Shirt run being printed with the Walkatjurra Walkabout design done by Vicky McCabe and also another batch with the Lizard design.
There is also a small run of hoddies being done with the Lizard design on the back..
More on that next week..
If you want to get in early and place an order then flick me an email here

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..

scorecard

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.

Emergency meeting tonight

Hi Everyone..

I’ll write a bigger update soon and let you all know what is happening, but for now we just wanted to let you know that Yeelirrie just got Ministerial approval –  that’s the one that the EPA rejected.

Here’s a link to all the docs if you want to read them – so it’s really time for action. If you can come to a BUMP meeting tonight ( Tuesday 17th at 5.30pm at Clancy’s in Fremantle to plan otherwise please stay posted for action.

http://www.epa.wa.gov.au/proposals/yeelirrie-uranium-project

As we come closer to the State election the Liberal party is pushing these approvals as all the polls are showing a Labor Party victory. This has no community support and goes agaist the recommendations of the EPA..

If you are in the Fremantle area then please come down to Clancy’s tonight and be a part of making plans to stop this from going ahead..
