Shut Down Australia – Down Tools Australia For Aboriginal Rights
“Shut Down Australia is a grassroots campaign to oppose the
federal and state governments plan to forcibly close
Aboriginal homeland communities in Australia and to

First Nation Peoples and their right to remain on their
remote ancestral homelands Register to Strike. … ”
We have never asked for donations to Antinuclear, and we’re not doing so now.
However, we’re just very keen to support Frontline Films David Bradbury is an Australian film-maker who has earned an international reputation as a film maker willing to go to extraordinary lengths for a cause, exposing political oppression and environmental vandalism.
He is currently producing a very up to date film on the situation of nuclear power – globally. Bradbury’s Frontline Films nevertheless runs on the proverbiial shoe string – and with little encouragement from the mainstream media.
We believe that Frontline Film’s newest documentary will be a remarkable and eye-opening film. But David Bradbury needs funds to get these filmed events and interviews edited, and onto DVD and film. And then – to get this – the most up to date film about the global nuclear scene to the 2nd International Uranium Film Festival of Rio de Janeiro 28. June – 14. July 2012.
So – we’re calling for donations. The Frontline Film Foundation is a registered charity and has tax deductible status. All you need is these banking details:
