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.

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.

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..

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..

Walkatjurra Walkabout 2016

Another Walkatjurra Walkabout finished, friendships made, stories shared, our commitment to fight for land and life affirmed. Since we walked into Leonora, so much more has happened.
IMG_3856

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We traveled to Kagoorlie last Tuesday, and in the afternoon visited the Sorry camp at Gribble Creek in support of the family gathered there to remember Elijah and support their calls for justice. We heard stories from his family, about a boy so full of life and promise, an upcoming youth leader and footballer. We heard about the indifference, incompetence and disrespect shown by police, of the racist comments threatening violence before and after his death and stood in silence beside the site of the murder – marks still visible of the fatal violence enacted against a child. We left flowers at a make shift memorial for Elijah and the Aboriginal flag we carried from Wiluna to Leonora in solidarity.

You can support Elijah’s family by making a donation to his funeral and headstone here: https://www.gofundme.com/2mphbcc

On Wednesday, the bus left with most of the walkers. So many goodbye hugs! We have all been through such an incredible experience, grown, changed and learnt together. A small group stayed on to set up for the Australian Nuclear Free Alliance (ANFA) meeting, together with Uncle Geoffrey, Christine, and Annette Stokes – who looks after Wongutha Birni. Cleaning out the big meeting room, setting up a shaded area outside, buying food and beginning cooking food for 50 people who would attend the meeting. The first person arrived on Thursday night, Barbara Shaw from Alice Springs, and by the time we were serving the first meal on Friday night there was already a big mob of people ready to strategise, build networks and support each other in the fight for a nuclear free future.

Uncle Kevin Buzzacott was sorely missed at the meeting, who has been such an inspiration for many people to be involved in this work. People from many nations across Australia were represented in the impressive group, as well as an aboriginal person from six nations in (so called) North America. Talks ranged from nuclear waste proposals in South Australia, radiation and health and the threat of uranium mining proposals. On Saturday night, a public meeting included talks from Mirrar speakers on the closing of the ERA mine at Ranger, Curtis from Martu spoke about the Kintyre proposed mine, Christine presented her innovative research (with Annette Stokes) into high levels of nitrates in water in goldfields region and the affects on human health, esp when it mixes with uranium. The night finished with stirring words from Janice, from Mulga Rocks, her strong words of resistance to the proposed mine there moving everyone in the crowd.

ANFA was a great success, good connections made, experiences shared and the movement for nuclear free future, where Aboriginal law and culture is respected, strengthened.

You can read the meeting statement and check out the photo’s here.

The rest of the walkers/ ANFA helpers headed back to Perth early this week. And we were excited to see Clinton on the side of the road, who is walking from Perth to Canberra for justice for Aboriginal people. What a courageous and powerful young person! You can follow his journey here: https://www.clintonswalkforjustice.org/
Back in Perth, we are still walking the walk – with an appeals workshop at CCWA this evening (http://www.ccwa.org.au/wiluna_appeal_writing_workshop_20160914) and planning has started for National Day of Action against nuclear waste dumps in South Australia on October 15th (http://dontdumponsaoct15.org/).

Walkatjurra Walkabout has finished but a lot of work ahead of us

Header 2

 

 

 

On Saturday Walkatjurra Walkabout finished the walk in to Leonora. You can see all the updates here.

Many of the walkers are still in Kalgoorlie preparing for the Australia Nuclear Free Alliance meeting being held in Kalgoorlie over the weekend. People from around the country are heading to Kalgoorlie to talk nukes. If you are in the area get in touch and join us for the public forum on Saturday 10th September. RSVP here.

When the walkers arrived in Kalgoorlie on Tuesday we heard that the W.A EPA had just recommended approval for the proposed Wiluna uranium mine. We are disappointed but not surprised – the WA EPA has a pattern of deferring important environmental assessments to other Government agencies.

CCWA will be hosting yet another appeal writing workshop in a bid to get many appeals lodged and to challenge the validity of the proposed mine. Please come along to City West Lotteries House on September 14, at 5pm – 8pm and get informed about Wiluna, learn new skills about the assessment and appeals process and meet other environmentalists like you. SEE EVENT DETAILS HERE. You can read more about the Wiluna proposal here. 

It has been another great walk with so many people participating from all over Australia along with people from Germany, Chile, France, New Zealand and the United States.. We would all like to give a massive thanks to all the Traditional Owners who helped guide us through country and shared so many stories with us all..  This years Walkatjurra Walkabout started as a celebration around the EPA’s recommendation that the Yeelirrie uranium project NOT be approved, but this celebration did not last long as the EPA then recommended that the Mulga Rocks uranium project approved, followed by them also recommending the Wiluna project as well..

We hope to see many of you at the appeals workshop and other events coming up soon.
There is also a NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION against nuclear waste dumps in SA.
