Radioactive Racism in Australia: Nuclear War on Aboriginal People

Radioactive Racism in Australia: Nuclear War on Aboriginal People

Jim Green | The Western Australian government is in the process of gutting the WA Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 at the behest of the mining industry. Native Title rights were extinguished with the stroke of a pen to seize land for a radioactive waste dump in SA, and Aboriginal heritage laws and land rights were repeatedly overridden with the push to dump nuclear waste in the NT.

UCIL has erected signboards to warn people about the pond, which can be seen in the background. PHOTO: Chinky Shukla
