The humble Mullum RSL hall was transformed into a psychedelic fairyland last Friday night as more than 250 rainbow region punters showed up to ‘Uranium Boom Nuclear Doom’.
The event was to express opposition to uranium mining in Australia, and raised funds to send international radiation and health expert Dr Helen Caldicott to Roxby Downs.
Dr Caldicott will address the miners and their families on the dangers of uranium mining.
Bundjalung songman Lewis Walker set the tone for the night in his welcome, saying: ‘It’s time for all us mob to come together to protect land and country’.
David Bradbury’s film Wake Up addressed the crisis of nuclear radiation while a live hook-up with the Fukushima Network for Saving Children from Radiation provided an update.
Additionally, activists spoke on the upcoming Lizard’s Revenge protest action at the Olympic Dam in Roxby Downs, to be held 14 to 17 July.
Goodspeed to our rainbow warriors headed for Roxby Downs and the gates of hell.
