ANOHNI has announced plans to embark on a 110-mile trek across the Western Australian desert this Friday to protest against the construction of a uranium mine. In an Instagram post, the stunning artist revealed plans to spend eight days in solidarity with the country's indigenous Martu of Parnngurr, (a community whose land might be under threat by such mines.)

In 2013, ANOHNI spent 10 days living with the Martu and has continued to raise awareness of their cause.

ANOHNI TO WALK 180 KM ACROSS WESTERN AUSTRALIAN DESERT WITH THE MARTU PEOPLE TO SUPPORT FIGHT AGAINST URANIUM MINE "In 2 days time, I am joining my Martu friends Nola and Curtis Taylor, over 100 other people from Parnngurr and neighboring communities, and other supporters from around the country on an 8 day, 180 Km protest walk from their remote community to the site of Mitsubishi and Cameco's proposed open cart uranium mine in the Western Australian Desert. The proposed Kintyre mine is on their traditional lands and a threat to their well-being, as well as being gouged out of Karlamilyi National Park. Curtis and I did a piece about it on National Indigenous Television network today." - Anohni image of Martu artist Ngalangka Nola Curtis http://www.ccwa.org.au/kintyre #martupeople #martumob #uraniummine #indigenousrights #protest #corporatecorruption #karlamilyi #mitsubishi #camecocorporation #parnngurr
