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.
My people have resisted destructive mining on our land and our sacred sites for generations. For over forty years we have fought to stop uranium mining at Yeelirrie, we stopped the removal of sacred stones from Weebo and for the last twenty years we have stopped destruction of 200 sites at Yakabindie. We are not opposed to responsible development, but cannot stand wanton destruction of our land, our culture, and our environment.
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.

GET ON THE PERTH to WILUNA BUS THIS AUGUST
Here is your opportunity to participate in the beginning of the 10-week “Walk Away from Uranium Mining” that will be walking 1,250km’s from Wiluna to Perth.
Footprints for Peace are organising a bus that will depart from Perth to Wiluna on Thursday 18th August and return to Perth on Friday 26th August 2011.
By coming to Wiluna you will be supporting Traditional Owners in their opposition to uranium mining. This will also give you the chance to witness and experience the nuclear industry first hand. You will be able to listen, see and walk on the country affected, to hear what the Traditional Owners have to say, while being a part of the nuclear free movement and strengthening the opposition to this dangerous & deadly industry.
This will also be the 45th anniversary of the Wave Hill Walk-Off in which Vincent Lingiari in 1966 led a walk off on Gurindji Land about wage rights and land rights. What better way to remember and honor their strength and courage.
Join the Walk-Off from Wiluna and be a part of the struggle that continues today regarding the fundamental issue and rights of Aboriginal and traditional lands and help keep WA uranium free.
