Before being elected to Government, the Federal labor party scrapped it’s ‘three mines’ policy – a 25 year Labor stance against new uranium mines in Australia.
Now, Labor is continuing a policy plan to transport and dump radioactive waste in the Northern Territory. We’ll hear today from Aboriginal women, from all over the country, who are affected by the mining, transportation and waste of toxic uranium.
In this show: Arrente woman Margie Lynch; Diane Stokes, Muckaty Land Trust member and Yapa Yapa elder; and Jillian Marsh, Adnyamathanha woman from South Australia.
Music: 'Balooraman' by Last Kinection
We also recommend 'Muckaty Voices', a video about community resistance to a radioactive waste dump at Muckaty Station:
