Black Mist, White Rain: Speaking Tour 2016

Black Mist, White Rain: Speaking Tour 2016
 The 15,600 nuclear weapons that still exist today pose an unacceptable ongoing threat to all humanity. While news headlines remind us of this threat, we must remember the nuclear tests conducted in Australia and the Pacific from the 1940s until the 1960s, which left permanent scars on both the land and its people. For many people in Australia and the Pacific, nuclear weapons are not a distant, abstract threat, but a lived reality – a persistent source of pain and suffering, of contamination and dislocation. Indigenous communities, long marginalised and mistreated, bear the brunt of this ongoing scourge.

Come and listen to the remarkable stories of four nuclear test survivors, and be inspired by the campaign to ban nuclear weapons.

Speakers:
Sue Coleman-Haseldine | Kokatha-Mula woman
Abacca Anjain-Maddison | Republic of the Marshall Islands
Rose Lester | Yankunytjatjara-Anangu woman
Dr Bill Williams | International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons

Welcome to country by Uncle Sam Watson.
