With a Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission in South Australia pushing to expand nuclear operations and a shortlisted site for a national nuclear waste dump on Adnyamathanha Country - South Australia, our campaign work at this time is vital.

The first Tuesday of every month will be 'No Dump Tuesday' where we will discuss the national dump campaign. If you can't make it to weekly meetings, we encourage you to get along to these meetings to get more involved in this campaign.

You can contact Federal Resources Minister Matt Canavan on 'Matt Mondays' to show your support for the Adnyamathanha community who are saying "NO!' to a nuclear waste dump on their country. All the information available HERE.

ART for eARTh's sake

Friends of the Earth's Anti-nuclear & Clean Energy (ACE) campaign is holding our annual art auction in November and we'd love your creative contributions! We are still seeking art donations.

The auction will raise vital funds for our national nuclear-free campaign work. For over 40 years we've been an important part of a passionate national and international movement working at all stages of the nuclear chain to protect country and community from this toxic industry. Currently much of our work involves supporting Aboriginal communities in the firing line for a national nuclear waste dump in SA's Flinders Ranges, and plans for an international nuclear waste dump somewhere in SA for 138,000 tonnes of high-level nuclear waste.

FoE's ACE collective is building the campaigns both nationally and internationally, engaging with formal processes, supporting communities directly impacted and amplifying the message from folks on the ground. 

To learn more about our work please visit and join our Facebook group: Ace Kollective

If you can support our art auction please contact contact Michaela 0415 656 403, Anica 0487 294 910 or email



National Day of Action: No Nuclear Waste Dumps on Aboriginal Land!

Peaceful solidarity action.

Saturday October 15, 11am‒1pm

Outside Flinders St Train Station, cnr. Flinders & Swanston Sts.

South Australian Aboriginal First Nations face severe threats of nuclear waste dumps and need your support! The federal government is trying to impose a national nuclear waste dump in the Flinders Ranges despite the unanimous opposition of Adnyamathanha Traditional Owners. And the SA state government is promoting a plan to import 138,000 tonnes of high-level nuclear waste from around the world despite overwhelming opposition from First Nations.

Saturday October 15 also marked the 63rd anniversary of the first of the British atomic bomb tests in SA.

Saturday October 15, 11am‒1pm, outside Flinders St Train Station, for a peaceful, fun solidarity action to support South Australian First Nations in their struggle for country and culture.

"Almost every waste dump is near an Aboriginal community. It's like, yeah, they're only a bunch of blacks, they're only a bunch of Abos, so we'll put it there. Don't you think that's a little bit confronting for us when it happens to us all the time? Can't they just leave my people alone?"

‒ Regina McKenzie, Adnyamathanha Traditional Owner, Yappala Station.

Please donate to support the Australia Nuclear Free Alliance (ANFA) annual gathering 2016 Kalgoorlie

The Australia Nuclear Free Alliance (ANFA) is a unique alliance of Aboriginal people and communities and health, environmental, social justice and union groups who share a common concern about nuclear projects and impacts on Aboriginal lands and who are working for a nuclear free future.

The annual ANFA meeting is our key forum to bring people together, to learn about developments on the ground, to share strategies and ideas and to plan for the year ahead. 

This meeting is led by Aboriginal people from communities across the country. Despite negligible funding ANFA has survived and grown as an alliance for nearly twenty years. This is a tribute to the Alliance’s leadership, strength and tenacity – and its importance.

You can help bring these affected communities together by sponsoring travel for ANFA community delegates facing the threats from the legacy of weapons testing, uranium mining or nuclear waste dump proposals.

All contributions and support are welcome. Please share this fundraiser with your friends.

You can find out more about what ANFA does and how we do things here:

To donate please visit:

"I support ANFA because it is supporting my family. We don't want uranium or waste travelling through country because of the dangers it presents. The national meeting brings us together to support each other, keep strong and see what ANFA can do to help us all." − Sue Coleman-Haseldine (Ceduna, SA), winner of the inaugural (2007) SA Premier's Award for excellence for indigenous leadership in natural resource management.


If you can't come along to meetings but would still like to support our campaign, please contact us as there is always lots to do. Please let us know if you would like to be added to the email list for campaign and news updates.
