Walkatjurra Walkabout – Walking for Country

is a celebration of Wangkatja country, a testament to the strength of the community who have fought to stop uranium mining at Yeelirrie for over forty years, and a chance to come together to continue share our commitment to a sustainable future without nuclear. It is a chance to reconnect with the land, and to revive the tradition of walking for country. The Walkatjurra Walkabout is drug and alcohol free.

The Walkatjurra Walkabout is set for the 23rd April to 26th May 2014, and we would love for you to join us. "Walking for country is to reconnect people with land and culture. The Walkatjurra Walkabout is a pilgrimage across Wangkatja country in the spirit of our ancestors so together, we as present custodians, can protect our land and our culture for future generations... We invite all people, from all places, to come together to walk with us, to send a clear message that we want the environment here, and our sacred places left alone." (Kado Muir, Traditional Owner, Yeelirrie)

The 2013 Walkatjurra Walkabout was a huge success and continues to grow and strengthen the connections between protecting Country and stopping uranium mining. After 5 years of a pro-uranium State Government, WA remains uranium mining free. Lets keep the pressure on and the uranium untouched - Wanti Uranium! Leave it in the Ground!
