Yami Lester tribute show and NY weapons ban

Saturday, 29 July 2017 - 10:00am to 10:30am

A tribute show to Yankunytjatjara elder and atomic test survivor, Yami Lester, who sadly passed away recently. We reflect on his ongoing fight for justice, for a nuclear free world and Aboriginal land rights.

Please note that, with family permission, this episode includes recordings of Yami Lester’s voice.

We also hear from Tim Wright, Campaign Director of ICAN (International Campaign Against Nuclear weapons) about the recent creation of an international treaty which bans nuclear weapons.

Paul Kelly's song 'Maralinga' features on the show - which was written about Yami's experience as a survivor of Emu Fields nuclear weapon testing.
