ICAN has set up a petition on the GetUp site CommunityRun to help build a groundswell of pressure to ensure the Future Fund change their policy and divest from nuclear weapons manufacturers once and for all!
Please take a moment to sign this online petition <http://www.communityrun.org/petitions/stop-investing-australian-taxpayers-money-in-nuclear-weapons-companies> at the CommunityRun website now – it will only take two minutes of your time.
The petition <http://www.communityrun.org/petitions/stop-investing-australian-taxpayers-money-in-nuclear-weapons-companies> is calling on Finance Minister Penny Wong to intervene and insist that the Future Fund board of guardians reinvest the money in socially useful enterprises rather than companies that produce inhumane, illegal weapons.

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:
