 For many people in Australia and the Pacific, nuclear weapons are not a distant, abstract threat, but a lived reality â€“ a persistent source of pain and suffering, of contamination and dislocation. Indigenous communities, long marginalised and mistreated, bear the brunt of this ongoing scourge.

Over four days in four cities, join us in exploring the ongoing impacts of nuclear testing in our region and the inspiring triumph of cultural survival. The stories from the front lines are a driving force behind the movement for a nuclear weapons ban, which is gaining momentum worldwide. 

Speakers:

Sue Coleman-Haseldine | Kokatha-Mula woman
Abacca Anjain-Maddison | Republic of the Marshall Islands
International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons

Visuals by Jessie Boylan, Atomic Photographers’ Guild.
