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.

Bradbury has won many international film festival prizes, received five Australian Film Industry awards, and two Academy Award nominations.

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:
Frontline Film Foundation
Southern Cross Credit Union
BSB: 802-185
A/C #: 86527

  4. We MUST PROTEST the placement / displacement of Nuclear Material anywhere so as to prevent a major nuclear mishap from happening on our shores or in outback.

    Just a few days ago (May 2012), in northeast North America, a nuclear submarine fire almost completely contaminated one of the most famous and once pristine clear fresh waters off Maine, the area having a coast with some of the best lobsters and other marine life in the world.

    If such an event occurred off an Austalian coast, we would have to kick ourselves in the butt for years and years for ever allowing such a terrible tragedy to occur. And if such an event occurred inside an Australian port, it would potentially close the port for many hundreds of years, similar to Fukushima Japan.
