Support Muckaty Traditional Owners on World Environment Day

For the past seven years there has been sustained community opposition to a federal government plan to dump Australia's radioactive waste on Aboriginal land at Muckaty in the Northern Territory.

Now Traditional Owners opposed to the dump plan are taking their concerns and their case to the Federal Court with a trial starting this week in Melbourne.

Join us to discuss the court case and the way forward for the campaign and responsible radioactive waste management.

People with Disabilities have been left behind far too long. Now more than ever we need to stand together and say we need our pensions protected, our health care protected, we deserve the supports to participate in society, to afford to live independently and dare I say it HAVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE PAID EMPLOYMENT and not be judged. Now the Coalition want to slow our pension increases to CPI rather than wage increases, destroy Medicare by charging us $7 GP tax, pathology, hospital emergency fees and it will only get worse.
