Movement against uranium mining (1976 - )
- Environmental Group and Political Group
Movement Against Uranium Mining (MAUM) commenced around 1976. By 1979 it had replaced the earlier National Uranium Moratorium Campaign and become the national umbrella organization coordinating opposition to uranium mining. There were some variations in the name used by state affiliates of MAUM: in South Australia it was known as Campaign Against Nuclear Energy (CANE) and in Queensland as Campaign Against Nuclear Power (CANP). It cooperated with anti-nuclear organisations such as Nuclear Free Australia, People for Nuclear Disarmament and Friends of the Earth (FOE). It established a strong support base within the trade union movement in the late 1970s/early 1980s and issued a newspaper called MAUM Trade Union News.
