The article analyzes the strategies used to oppose uranium mining and nuclear power in Australia. The analysis begins with the presentation of the role played by several structures, such as state, capitalism, patriarchy and intellectual division of labor in the development of nuclear power. It follows with the outline of the historical background of uranium mining, the need to build alternative structures at several levels, and the demand of anti-nuclear movement organization in the state. The results suggest that nuclear power opposition can be made at various levels, like education, community activities, rallies, and civil obedience. It adds that direct pressure to stop nuclear power could control the expansion of nuclear power.
