This group came into being in 1997 to act as an umbrella group for organisations campaigning against the nuclearisation of Australia.
Our role is mainly in research, political lobbying and publication of information that we believe the community needs in order to make informed decisions about uranium mining, nuclear power, weapons and waste.
We are the tip of the iceberg, representing the 70-80% of Western Australians who oppose uranium mining and waste dumping in Australia, particularly in our home state.
ANAWA is dependant on the generosity of the community to continue this work – peace movements, like wars, cost money.
Here in Western Australia, our first-hand experience is limited and we believe that people do not yet realise the dangers that these new mining proposals pose to our country.
What has been shown over and over again is that strong community opposition can stop uranium mines, power stations and waste dumps if the action is determined, well informed and widespread. The politicians who approve these projects rely on us for their positions of power. That power, granted at election time, can be withdrawn.
