Looking forward to 2016 Walkatjurra Walkabout

Hi everyone..

Hopefully everyone has had some time with family and friends and enjoying the end of 2015 and getting some good rest and relaxation!!

2015 has been a pretty big year and 2016 looks like being even bigger as the momentum to keep Western Australia nuclear free continues to grow.

For 2016 we are planning a walk through the Karlamilyi National Park to the proposed Kintyre uranium mine around the beginning of June (more updates coming soon)

We will be doing the Walkatjurra Walkabout again from Wiluna to Leonora in August (dates coming soon) and there is also plans to hold the annual Australian Nuclear Free Alliance (ANFA) meeting in Kalgoorlie after the Walkatjurra Walkabout in September.

There is also talk of a possible run / convoy to Pine Gap for the 50th anniversary

We are looking at having a planning meeting in Fremantle early February and hope many of you can come to contribute ideas and time for some of the big plans for 2016. 

If you are feeling a bit generous time of year and wondering who you could give a gift too then your old friend the Bardi Bus would like to start the year with a few new tyres and a service.. To give the Bardi Bus a new years gift you can make a tax deductible donation

Krohn column: Dakota 38 skeleton long resided in Mankato - Local News - Mankato Free Press Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Krohn column: Dakota 38 skeleton long resided in Mankato - Local News - Mankato Free Press: One particularly painful chapter was the treatment of remains after 38 Dakota were hanged in Mankato in 1862. The bodies were put in a shallow grave by the nearby Minnesota River. That night their bodies were dug up for use in anatomical studies — a practice not unusual at the time. The remains went to doctors, including Dr. William Mayo, father of the brothers who founded the Mayo Clinic.

Only the remains of one of the 38 — Cut Nose — has been recovered and reburied by Native Americans. Two other Native American remains believed to be of the 38 have also been recovered, but never identified.

Volkswagen’s Nazi-Era Blood Crimes | The Nation Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Volkswagen’s Nazi-Era Blood Crimes | The Nation: According to historical records, as early as June 1940 Volkswagen had already begun using forced labor. German historian Ulrich Herbert has documented in his 1997 book Hitler’s Foreign Workers that, at times, as much as 70 percent of the company’s workforce was conscripted, primarily from Eastern Europe. Basically, these workers were slaves, given just a pittance to live on. But Volkswagen subscribed fully to the Nazi racialist theories that categorized non-Aryans as subhuman—and, like the Nazis themselves, it had a pecking order, which factory director Hans Mayr later outlined for Allied war-crimes investigators. Scandinavians were treated slightly better and got better rations than Poles, and Poles, in turn, received better treatment and rations than Russians. (By this time, Jews were regarded as so inferior that those not sent to the death camps were worked to death in the factories.) Still, according to the investigators, even with the laborers subsisting on near-starvation rations, Volkswagen officials would steal food from the kitchen and either eat it themselves or sell it back to the conscripts. Mayr disclaimed any responsibility on the part of himself or the company by telling the investigators, “You know these Russians; they would plunder anyhow.”

Chiapas: Ch’ol indigenous people occupy Tila City Hall after decades of having been ignored | SIPAZ Blog Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Chiapas: Ch’ol indigenous people occupy Tila City Hall after decades of having been ignored | SIPAZ Blog: Protestors indicated that in 2008 the ejidal authorities of Tila had won a motion promoted “against one of the several attempts at plundering that we have suffered since 1964, due to the different actions taken by City Hall, the state government, and the local congress.” The motion orders the restitution of 130 hectares of ancestral lands. However, using the argument that the sentence cannot possibly be implemented, City Hall has failed to observe the ruling.
