Help delegates from the Australian Nuclear Free Alliance get to the World Uranium Symposium in Québec City, April 2015, to connect with Canadian First Nations peoples for a nuclear free future.
In 2015, communities from all over the world are gathering in Québec City, Canada, for the World Uranium Symposium from 14-16 April. The Symposium will address a broad range of issues related to the nuclear fuel chain, including uranium mining, radioactive waste, aboriginal rights and nuclear weapons proliferation.
The Australian Nuclear Free Alliance (ANFA) has been invited to contribute stories of nuclear resistance and the impact of the nuclear industry on Aboriginal communities in Australia. Formed in 1997, ANFA brings together Aboriginal people and relevant civil society groups concerned about existing or proposed nuclear developments in Australia, particularly on Aboriginal homelands.
Your support will enable three Co-Chairs of ANFA to take up this rare opportunity to share the Australian nuclear story with an international audience. While in Québec City, the ANFA delegates will be able to meet with Mohawk and Cree First Nations peoples, who are leading an inspiring campaign against nuclear expansion on their territories.
A minimum of $6000 is needed to fund flight, food and accommodation costs. If we raise above this target, more Aboriginal delegates from ANFA will be able to accompany the three Co-Chairs and contribute their voice to the Symposium. You can make a donation of any amount and get a tax-deductible receipt OR you can choose a prize, please note that donations with prizes are not tax deductible.
