Global Call to Action for a Ban on Uranium Mining

International Chernobyl Conference of IPPNW 8.-10. April 2011

As with Chernobyl, the current disaster at Fukushima I, Japan, highlights the radioactive reality of the nuclear industry.  Uranium from Australia and elsewhere fuels Japanese and European nuclear reactors. We are inspired by Yvonne Margarula, representing the Mirarr people, Senior Aboriginal Traditional Owner of land where uranium is mined in the World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park in Australia's Northern Territory.
