As the Federal Labor Government sets its sights firmly on Muckaty Station near Tennant Creek, the campaign for better decision making regarding the management of our radioactive wastes has renewed focus. Supporters from all around the country came to a rally in Tennant Creek this month to support Traditional Owners of the Muckaty Land Trust who are resisting new laws that attempt to force the dump on their land.
No Waste Alliance
The No Waste Alliance is a network of community groups comprising concerned individuals and representatives of stakeholder organisations. The Alliance formed in response to Dr Brendan Nelson's announcement in July 2005 that, contrary to federal government promises during the previous federal and NT elections, the NT has been targeted for a radioactive waste dump. The No Waste Alliance aims to give Territorians information and options for action in response to the unwanted long-lived pollution presented by the nuclear industry.
