Amplify



Give Minister Ferguson 
the thumbs down on Muckaty Bill

WHAT: 
Peaceful protest / action

WHERE:  

Minister Ferguson's Office - 159 High Street , Preston . Melbourne, VIC.

WHEN:

Mon January 17th, 2011. 9am - 11am

Three days before Christmas the government concluded 
a sham committee inquiry endorsing 
Martin Ferguson's plans to dump nuclear waste at Muckaty in the NT. 



Traditional Owners were not given the opportunity
 to speak to the committee or even to lodge a submission. 

Ferguson continues to refuse requests to meet with Traditional Owners opposed to the dump. Traditional Owners have initiated legal action in the Federal Court yet it seems likely that Ferguson will push ahead with his Radioactive Waste Management Bill early in 2011. The Bill overides state and territory laws, it overrides important federal Aboriginal heritage and environmental legislation, and it enshrines Muckaty as the only site under consideration despite the opposition of many Traditional Owners, the NT Government and many others.

Muckaty Traditional Owners are calling for our support to stop the dump. 
Now is the time to act. 
Please come to the protest on January 17 
and contact Friends of the Earth
 if you can support the campaign in other ways.
