Brisbane will keep tradition alive this Sunday holding its 31st annual Palm Sunday Rally for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament.
With the LNP taking the reins of government and uranium miners are already spruiking Queensland’s uranium resource potential, the issues are as relevant as ever,” states co-ordinator Joan Shears, who has been involved in the event since 1981.
“In the shadow of the ongoing disaster at Fukushima, Queenslanders, and all Australians, need to consider what role we wish to play in global nuclear power and weapons proliferation.”
“We call on political parties to ensure that neither Queensland nor Australia ever fuels another nuclear nightmare here or overseas. It is time to both ban uranium mining and to refuse support for US nuclear weapons-capable military might.”

Keen and active supporter of Peace, Anti-Uranium, and Anti-Nuclear movements since 1970s
