Traditional Owners facing nuclear projects and representatives from environment and health organisations are gathering for the annual Australian Nuclear Free Alliance (ANFA) meeting in Alice Springs
this weekend, August 13‐15.
Formed in 1997, the Alliance provides a forum for sharing of knowledge, skills and experience in protecting country and culture from nuclear developments.
The Alliance helped to build the successful campaign to stop the
Jabiluka uranium mine in the Northern Territory, and more recently, a proposed national nuclear waste
dump in South Australia.
Currently, Aboriginal communities across the country face a wave ofuranium exploration, several proposed new uranium mines, and a
proposed national nuclear waste dump.
The public events of the meeting include a “Rock Against Radiation” concert on Sunday night at the 7mile aerodrome (corner of Titjikala road) and a “Vote Nuclear Free” rally on Monday August 16.
The rally will be held at 12pm on the Flynn Church Lawns in Todd Mall and will involve distribution of a scorecard of the major parties policies on nuclear issues.
Rally speakers include: Muckaty Traditional Owner Dianne Stokes;
ANFA co‐chair Donna Jackson;
Friends of the Earth national nuclear campaigner Dr Jim Green and; Performance by Greens Senate Candidate Warren H Williams.
