The 8-day trek is in solidarity with the Martu of Parnngurr.

ANOHNI has announced plans to embark on a 110-mile walk across the Western Australian desert on Friday (June 3) to protest against the construction of a uranium mine.

Revealing the news in an Instagram post, the Hopelessness artist will be joined by more than 100 of the country’s indigenous Martu of Parnngurr, a community whose land may be under threat from the mine’s arrival, for the 8-day trek. See the post below.

ANOHNI spent 10 days living with the Martu in 2013 and has since been raising awareness of their cause at various events and television appearances.

Back in April, the activist warned of a “nuclear war within six months” if Donald Trump becomes President. She also dropped one of our favourite videos in March – the Naomi Campbell-featuring ‘Drone Bomb Me’, which you can watch below.
