ANFA gets standing applause at World Uranium Symposium

ANFA gets standing applause at World Uranium Symposium

The morning started with a plenary on human and Indigenous peoples’ rights vs. the nuclear fuel chain. Barb Shaw took to the podium with the map of Australian uranium sites and talked from her heart. Her talk ended to a standing ovation.

The World Uranium Symposium finished with a (nuclear free) bang today, with a performance of a new song by famous Quebecois musician Gilles Vigneault. The youth of the Cree Nation took to the stage and told us about their 800-mile walk against uranium, from Mistissini to Montreal, during winter.

The Symposium Declaration was finalised and read aloud by a some of the inspiring people who shared their stories and work, including Barb. The text is available here. We’re off to the International Uranium Film Festival now, and looking forward to the screening of Protecting Manuwangku on Saturday night!
