WANFA was formed out of the Australian Nuclear Free Alliance (ANFA) meeting in September 2009 on Nukunu country, Quorn, South Australia. Formed in 1997, ANFA (formerly the Alliance Against Uranium) has been bringing together Aboriginal people, relevant NGO’s and health professionals concerned about existing or proposed nuclear developments in Australia, particularly on Aboriginal homelands. The Alliance played an important role in initiating and building the successful campaigns to stop the Jabiluka uranium mine and a national nuclear dump proposed for South Australia.

  2. Hi there
    I read the letter [Solidarity Statement from WANFA to the people of Japan] and write to you.
    I was one of the rainbow warrior when “Ohms not Bombs” movement happening in Sydney quite while ago.
    Now I strongly believe our link has re-connected to act our common effort to stop Nuke in Japan and also mining in WA.

    Very unfortunately most of Japanese believe what TODEN’s (TEPCO) information which are pretty much controlled by them, which means they still believe it’s SAFE and not a big problem at all.
    I’ve been working for Earthquake & Tsunami Relief campaign as collecting donation much as I could but even those people complaints about my “NO NUKE” information through our email letter.
    I’m just a person who has standard everyday life, so at this stage I don’t know what I could do. But still I think we need to awaken the people here and act as soon as possible.

    I hope we could share the information and work together some how.

  4. Hello,

    I am a french sound artist and radio documentary maker (http://faidosonore.net). On november 2019, I will come back to Australia, hosted by the Bogong Center for Sound Culture (http://bogongsound.com.au) in order to a sound piece and a radio documentary about the memories of the nuclear bombings and the current issue of nuclear waste and uranium deposit. I have already planned to go to Maralinga and Barndioota sites and meet some of the radios of the CAAMA network (http://caama.com.au). I am still looking for contacts of native aboriginal people who could testimony about the nuclear bombings and the current stuggle concerning the uranium deposit and nuclear waste. If you are interested by my issue and you have contacts, I would be pleased to speak with you (by mail or by skype before coming to Australia). Last year, I came to do a sound project with the Bogong Center for Sound Culture about the ecological and social changes in the Kiewa valley (http://bogongsound.com.au/projects/gateway and https://soundcloud.com/user-945903241/gateway)

    Hoping to have some news from your organisation, I hope all the best for your struggle.

    Best regards,

    Benoit Bories

    1. Hi Benoit, there are so many people you could meet and talk too – what a great project. I’m happy to put you intouch with some people. Best way to be in touch is through e-mail – mia.pepper@ccwa.org.au If you are going to Maralinga you will find lots of people who remember the bombings or have family stories about the bombings. Are you intouch with CAAMA already? My friend Cat works at the radio station in Port Augusta which is a pretty central place to lots of communities affected by the bombings – cata.beaton@gmail.com (sorry for the sow reply) Mia
