Friends of the Earth has been campaigning against the nuclear industry - and promoting safer solutions - for 40 years. If you'd like to get involved, contact your local FoE group or contact your local anti-nuclear campaign group or contact FoE's national nuclear campaigner Jim Green 0417 318 368 or email email@example.com.
October 2017 - these anti-nuclear webpages are slowly being updated after a transition to a new web platform. Detailed information on the nuclear industry is posted at: http://archive.foe.org.au/anti-nuclear/
If you're looking for a particular webpage, try replacing 'www.' with 'archive.' ... so for example:
- information on the plan to use Adnyamathanha people in SA's Flinders Ranges as the nation's nuclear garbage dump is: http://archive.foe.org.au/waste
- information on the plan to turn SA into the world's high-level nuclear waste dump is posted at: http://archive.foe.org.au/import-waste
- and critical responses to nuclear lobbyists are posted at http://archive.foe.org.au/anti-nuclear/issues/oz#a
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED AS THE GUEST SPEAKER IS UNABLE TO ATTEND. APOLOGIES.
Dirty Deals 10 Years On ‒ The Story of Uranium Mining in Malawi
Public meeting, all welcome
Tuesday October 17, 6.30pm to 8pm
Friends of the Earth, 312 Smith St, Collingwood
Guest speaker: Reinford Mwangonde from Citizens for Justice, Malawi.
Reinford has challenged Perth-based mining company Paladin Energy's Kayelekera uranium mine in Malawi, the heart of Africa, since before the licence was granted in 2007. The history of the mine has been littered with worker deaths, spills and leaks, and conflict between Paladin and the surrounding community.
Now the mine has been put into care-and-maintenance and Paladin Energy has gone bust and been put into administration.
Will the Kayelekera mine site be rehabilitated ‒ or will it remain a toxic eye-sore and a testament to the appalling history of Australian mining companies operating in Africa?
Please join Friends of the Earth and Reinford Mwangonde for this important discussion.
