London to Geneva, through France
International Peace Walk
The nuclear industry threatens us all
Today there is an urgent call for global action to break the cycle of mass destruction created by:
nuclear power plants
manufacturing nuclear weapons
the disposal of radioactive waste.
Australia is one of the largest suppliers of uranium to the world & France is the largest nuclear energy user - so we need to connect and work together more in this global struggle to end the nuclear industry.
In April 2008 we will embark on an 84 day journey covering over 1500kms. We will work together with local communities to raise public awareness about the suffering & coercion that communities through out the world face by the nuclear industry.
Over the past decade we have participated in non-violent actions, vigils, peace walks and runs to raise awareness of the nuclear industry. During this time
we have visited many nuclear sites and the communities who are being affected.
We have come to see, literally that we are not just working on local issues –
we are engaged in an international struggle.
With your support and commitment we will work together to empower and inspire people while creating a community of peaceful change.
This is an open walk, accessible for all and focused on creating a family friendly atmosphere.
Please walk with us for as long as you can – a single step, a day or for the whole journey.
