Australian Nuclear Free Alliance

“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.”

Vegan Australia

“Vegan Australia is an organisation which campaigns nationally for veganism. We believe that by working at a national level we can more effectively support the vegan community, inform the public about the principles of veganism and, importantly, present a strong voice for veganism to governments, institutions, corporations and the media. We are dedicated to making a difference for animals, people and our planet. The name “Vegan Australia” is significant. The organisation is more than just a social group for like-minded people. Rather, the name represents an ethical and political statement about what we want – a vegan Australia (or a vegan world, but let’s take one step at a time!). Vegan Australia works in cooperation with other vegan, animal and other progressive organisations around Australia and provides a strongly vegan perspective. We are aware of the “tyranny of distance” in Australia and so strive to ensure that organisations and individuals from all parts of the country are involved.”
