Footprints for Peace steps up
THE Footprints for Peace walk, involving Jacquelina Wills, June Norman and Sue Gregory, arrived in Ballina yesterday afternoon. The group of women are raising awareness of climate change and the dangers of the nuclear industry by walking from Brisbane to Canberra.
“We’ve got a powerful message,” Ms Norman said. “I’ve got grandchildren and great-grandchildren, that’s why I’m doing this. At the moment, I don’t see a very good future for my great-grandchildren.”
The walkers will rest in Ballina tomorrow before continuing their journey, arriving in Canberra at the end of May.
