Update on the Australian Nuclear Free Alliance

K-A Garlick at Nuclear Free WA, 31 Oct 19, In this weeks campaign update, representatives of many Aboriginal Nations, civil society organisations and anti nuclear activists from all over the country travelled to the stunning Nukunu and Adnyamathanha lands in southern Stirling Ranges of Quorn, SA for the annual Australian Nuclear Free Alliance (ANFA).  ANFA is a network of Aboriginal people, environmentalists, health professionals and trade unionists concerned about and opposed to nuclear activities that have gathered each year for over two decades.  The WA nuclear free alliance was strongly represented with people from Mulga Rock and Yeelirrie areas attending.

This years ANFA was led by the staunch co-chairs, Adnyamathanha/Kokatha man Dwayne Coulthard and Tjiwarl woman Vicki Abdullah who led, organised and inspired the meeting with their shared experiences of the nuclear industry that impacts the lives and country of Aboriginal people in many ways.  ANFA concluded with a powerful rally in Port Augusta, to show community resistance to the appalling waste dump site selection process by the Federal Government.  Click here to watch a short video of some of the awesome speeches and photographs from the rally.
