The nuclear industry threatens us all. Today there is an urgent call for global action to break the cycle of mass destruction created by:

· The mining of uranium
· The enrichment process
· Nuclear power plants
· Manufacturing of nuclear weapons
· The disposal of radioactive waste.

On the 26th of April 2008 we will embark on an 86-day journey covering over 1500kms. We will work together with local communities to raise public awareness about the suffering and coercion that communities through out the world face by the nuclear industry.

With Australia as one of the largest suppliers of uranium to the world and France as the largest nuclear energy user, we need to connect and work together more in this global struggle to end 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 all 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.

Already people from Australia, U.S.A., Japan, England, Scotland, Germany and France commited themselves to walk the whole distance. Join the international anti-nuclear family !

Please walk with us for as long as you can - a single step, a day or for the whole journey.

THIS WILL BE A DRUG & ALCOHOL FREE ACTION
