Over in Western Australia, the nucelar free campaign are celebrating 10 years since former Premier Colin Barnett lifted the ban on uranium mining in the State.  10 years ago, uranium was promoted as being a new mining sector that would be like 'iron ore on steroids' but with collective efforts of resistance, solidarity and tireless campaigning the uranium sector has been halted in WA.  

On this weeks show you will hear from some of WA's most solid activists that have been campaigning for over 10 years! Mr Glen Cooke, Jo Valentine and Marcus Atkinson. 

Ngaanyatjarra elder Mr Glen Cooke for over 10 years has played a crucial role in both the national nuclear free alliance- ANFA and the Western Australian nuclear free alliance - WANFA to defend his country, culture and community to stop uranium mining in the Goldfields area of WA.
