About

WANFA was formed out of the Australian Nuclear Free Alliance (ANFA) meeting in September 2009 on Nukunu country, Quorn, South Australia. Formed in 1997, ANFA (formerly the Alliance Against Uranium) has been bringing together Aboriginal people, relevant NGO’s and health professionals concerned about existing or proposed nuclear developments in Australia, particularly on Aboriginal homelands. The Alliance played an important role in initiating and building the successful campaigns to stop the Jabiluka uranium mine and a national nuclear dump proposed for South Australia.

The 2014 – 2015 WANFA committee:

  • Mr Glen Cooke – ANFA Co-Chair
  • Kado Muir- WANFA Chairperson
  • Jeanette McGrath 
  • Della Rae Morrison
  • Vicky McCabe

Honorary Members and Founders:

Geoffrey Stokes, Richard Evans, Della Rae Morrison, Ken Hayward and Merle Dann.

  2. Hi there
    I read the letter [Solidarity Statement from WANFA to the people of Japan] and write to you.
    I was one of the rainbow warrior when “Ohms not Bombs” movement happening in Sydney quite while ago.
    Now I strongly believe our link has re-connected to act our common effort to stop Nuke in Japan and also mining in WA.

    Very unfortunately most of Japanese believe what TODEN’s (TEPCO) information which are pretty much controlled by them, which means they still believe it’s SAFE and not a big problem at all.
    I’ve been working for Earthquake & Tsunami Relief campaign as collecting donation much as I could but even those people complaints about my “NO NUKE” information through our email letter.
    I’m just a person who has standard everyday life, so at this stage I don’t know what I could do. But still I think we need to awaken the people here and act as soon as possible.

    I hope we could share the information and work together some how.

    Best Reagrds
