Understorey: Abolishing the Unthinkable Hazard

Wednesday 24th September / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

A nuclear detonation in Perth - whether it be a nuclear weapon accidentally exploding or actually being targeted on our city - is not defined as an "hazard" under the state's Emergency Management Act.

In this week's Understorey, bookended as we are between International Peace Day and Nuclear Abolition Day, we go to the Mayors for Peace public meeting in Fremantle to hear Gem Romuld from the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) and Della Rae Morrison, from the WA Nuclear Free Alliance (WANFA) to remind us about the global movement involving more than a hundred nations around the world, determined to abolish nuclear weapons, because of the the environmental and humanitarian imperatives.
