Public forum, Tuesday May 24
Australia is once again talking nuclear waste, both on a national and international level - and targeting South Australia. This is an issue that concerns all Australians but particularly targets Australia's Aboriginal people. Come and spend an evening with us to learn about what is happening and what can be done!
The forum will bring Adnyamathanha Traditional Owners Regina and Vivianne McKenzie, whose land in SA's Flinders Ranges is being targeted for a national nuclear waste dump to Melbourne to talk about their struggle and what we can do to help.
Other issues will include nuclear policies in the context of the upcoming federal election; the plan to turn Australia into the world's nuclear waste dump; and the use of nuclear medicine as a propaganda tool by industry and governments.
