Monday 12th April marked a National Day of Action against the Muckaty Radioactive Waste Dump and for Sydney that meant a message needed to be sent to and heard by Peter Garrett!
Sydney ASEN crew with Friends of the Earth Sydney created a delicious radioactive waste dump outside of Peter Garrett’s office to show what it felt like to have nasty nuclear waste on his front door.
The letter from over 50 Muckaty traditional owners to Martin Ferguson and Peter Garrett were read out aloud to those on the busy Anzac Pde inviting Garrett to listen to their opposition and remove Muckaty as the proposed site.
Lee Rhiannon from the Greens spoke of their efforts and solidarity with the Muckaty traditional owners while various others spoke of their concerns with the nomination and consultation process of the nuclear waste dump site.
Lastly, letters of support for the Muckaty traditional owner’s opposition were given with some local support gathered in the shopping area.
DUMP da DUMP in NT!
