Protest against uranium for Toro AGM

Anti-uranium activists staged an action at the Perth headquarters of mining company Toro to coincide with its November 28 annual general meeting in Adelaide.

The company is trying to build WA's first uranium mine (Wiluna) against the wishes of the majority of West Australians.

Activists gave the company a practical demonstration about how hard it is to clean up after a nuclear accident by attempting to clean up yellow cake in the company office.

The company said that the action was an act of intimidation whereas the reality is that it is the company and the state and federal governments that are trying to foist their agenda onto the people of WA.
