Black Mist White Rain Speaking Tour 2016

Four cities in four days. Black Mist White Rain is a series of public forums exploring the impact of nuclear testing in our region and the urgent need for a ban treaty.

Australia’s role in banning nuclear weapons

Australia should be at the forefront of global efforts to outlaw and eliminate nuclear weapons – not clinging to the misguided belief that these WMD protect us.

The impact of nuclear weapons on Australia

For many Australians, nuclear weapons are not a distant, abstract threat, but a lived reality. Learn more about the impact of nuclear testing and uranium mining.

Australia’s conflicted position on disarmament

The Australian government has resisted calls to ban nuclear weapons, as it claims that US nuclear weapons enhance Australia’s security.

Widespread support in Australia for a ban

More than 100 Australian parliamentarians and 800 recipients of the Order of Australia have signed ICAN appeals to ban and eliminate nuclear weapons.

Donate to the Tom Uren Memorial Fund

A passionate anti-nuclear and peace activist, Tom Uren fought all his political life against these immoral weapons. This fund carries on his legacy.

With more than 60 diverse partner organisations nationwide, we aim to raise public awareness about the catastrophic humanitarian harm caused by nuclear weapons and put nuclear disarmament squarely on the Australian political agenda.
