We've been digging into the archives of almost 50 years of nuclear-free campaigning at Friends of the Earth Melbourne, and are really excited to be rolling out some iconic, limited edition, nuclear free merchandise!
Turn da Tables
The image is derived from a Friends of the Earth project in the 2000's, which successfully engaged Australian musicians to make a public stand against the nuclear industry. Drawing on the experience of the environmental record label “Red Hot Green Black”, the 'Turn da Tables' project involved a sign-on letter and launch. Posters of the image were produced for display in record stores. T-shirts were given to musicians that signed on, with an aim to produce more for sale at summer music festivals. Over 50 musicians signed on to a statement for a nuclear free Australia including Killing Heidi, BodyJar and 28 days - iconic of this era of music and activism!
Nuclear Free Collective
All profits from Turn da Tables caps will support the work of FoE Melbourne's Nuclear Free Collective, who continue the tradition of amplifying the voices of Indigenous communities directly impacted by the nuclear industry, and exposing the reality of uranium mining, the legacy of nuclear weapons testing and the threat of proposed nuclear waste dumps. We believe that together we can still Turn da Tables to create a nuclear free future!
