National Campaigns & Projects

Whilst focusing on local, grassroots action, Friends of the Earth Australia as a federation also campaigns at the national level. See a list below of our national campaigns and project work.


Friends of the Earth believe that the radioactive racism of the nuclear industry in Australia must be stopped. We work with First Nations and front line communities to resist all parts of the nuclear cycle: mining, nuclear power, nuclear waste, and nuclear weapons.

Friends of the Earth have worked for over forty years researching, educating and actively campaigning on nuclear issues. We aim to protect people and the environment from damage by the nuclear industry and promote safe, clean and sustainable energy solutions.

 Our economic system should serve communities and the environment, not the other way round. While CEOs make fortunes, billions live in poverty people and planet are being destroyed by companies that have effectively bought our democracies. To create a new world based on justice and sustainability we need to build movements without borders.

Friends of the Earth's economic justice project stands with social movements, including feminists, factory workers, indigenous people and peasant movements around the world, to challenge corporate power through global action.

Groups We Auspice

Formed in 1997, the Australian Nuclear Free Alliance (formerly the Alliance Against Uranium) brings together Aboriginal people and relevant civil society groups concerned about existing or proposed nuclear developments in Australia, particularly on Aboriginal homelands.

The Alliance provides a forum for sharing of knowledge, skills and experience. It is an opportunity to come together and find strength through our shared aims to protect 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, proposed national nuclear waste dumps in South Australia and Muckaty in the NT.

Currently, Aboriginal communities face a wave of uranium exploration, several proposed new uranium mines, and a proposed national nuclear waste dump.
