April 10, 2011
With the crisis in Fukushima, a proposed radioactive waste dump in NT, potential uranium mines in Queensland and wars throughout the world, it is urgent that we get together for some education, talk and action.
The Queensland Nuclear Free Alliance invites the community to join us at the 2011 Nuclear Free & Peaceful Queensland Workshop Day & Action Weekend.
Join us for some irradiation-free morning tea. Hear the stories of people fighting against uranium mines and nuclear waste dumps on their land, explore the ethics of uranium mining, the viability of nuclear power, and the implications of increasing military ties to nuclear weapons superpower, the U.S. Get informed about the issuesâ€¦ and get active!
