Dr Sue Wareham hands over Yokohama postcards to Australian Government

Postcards calling on Australia not to fuel another nuclear catastrophe, were signed by Japanese people in Yokohama in January 2012 at the Global Conference for a Nuclear Power Free World. They were addressed to the Prime Minister, Julia Gillard (see picture below).

On Monday 16 July  MAPW Vice President Dr Sue Wareham met with Nicola Gordon-Smith, Assistant Secretary at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, in order to hand over hundreds of postcards from Japanese people pointing out the danger of nuclear power and calling on the government to phase out the mining and export of uranium.

Dr Wareham took the opportunity to pass on the position of the MAPW in relation to nuclear power and the mining of uranium and to make a number of requests concerning these issues.
