Please join the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom NSW and ICANi Australia on Saturday 17th June for a Women's March to Ban the Bomb!

 This march is a women-led initiative and inclusive of all genders, ages, cultures and faiths. It is building on movements at the forefront of the resistance to weapons and war. It is occurring in solidarity with the New York Women's March to Ban the Bomb, organised by WILPFi program Reaching Critical Will. This is also part of a National Day of Action across Australia! Featuring: Dr Helen Caldicott (physician, author and anti-nuclear advocate), Rose Lester (Yankunytjatjara-Anangu), Asian Women at Work Drumming Group, and more TBA. We will rally outside the office of the Defence Minister, Senator Marise Payne, march up Church St, over the Parramatta River and finish with a picnic and music in Prince Alfred Square. Please help us publicise the event by forwarding the event flyer below  View and download the event flyer here.
