Palm Sunday protests against Jabiluka
Rallies will be held in many centres on Palm Sunday, March 28, to protest against the Jabiluka uranium mine and other aspects of Australia's involvement in the nuclear fuel cycle.
In Melbourne, the rally is being organised by a coalition involving the Jabiluka Action Group (JAG), church groups and unions. Sydney JAG is organising a march and rally which will also highlight the federal government's plan to build a new reactor at Lucas Heights. The feature speaker will be anti-nuclear campaigner Dr Helen Caldicott.
In Brisbane, JAG is planning a rally in conjunction with People for Nuclear Disarmament. Perth JAG is planning to link up with church groups in a protest outside the stock exchange against corporate investment in the uranium industry.
Events are also being planned in Newcastle, Canberra, Darwin, Hobart, Wollongong and Adelaide.
