The Wire:
The Lizard’s Revenge begins as protesters head to Olympic Dam
Produced by Catherine Zengerer

11 Jul 12: “Sleeping underneath the ground, there is an old
lizard known as Kalta the sleepy lizard. The lizard ain’t
so sleepy anymore. The Federal Government approved the
expansion of the Olympic Dam uranium mine in Roxby Downs in
October 2011, to make it the biggest uranium mine in the
world. Local Arabunna elder Kevin Buzzacott says Kalta the
lizard is angry and wants revenge. He’s calling the people
of the world to help the lizard shut down the mine. And
people from around Australia are answering his call.
They’re heading to Olympic Dam for a weekend of protest
called the Lizard’s Revenge… but the police are making it
hard for them.

http://www.abc.net.au/environment/articles/2012/07/10/3541989.htm
10 Jul 12: “THE ANTI-NUCLEAR MOVEMENT in Australia can be
characterised by several key themes – colour, lentils,
solidarity and a commitment to nonviolent acts of
resistance. Another pervasive theme that characterises the
past forty years of activism is power imbalance. On one
side of the struggle you have poor and sometimes dislocated
indigenous people, students and concerned community members
(greenies). On the other side there are billion dollar
companies, the Government, State police and the media.”

9 Jul 12: “OLYMPIC Dam is like a state with no environment,
water, Aboriginal and FoI laws, says Jim Green. …
HUNDREDS of Australians will converge on BHP Billiton’s
Olympic Dam uranium/copper mine – and a camp up the
Oodnadatta Track – from Saturday for five days of protest,
education and entertainment. The concerns leading people to
participate are many and varied. The overarching concern
might be expressed as a failure of governance – corporate
and political. Olympic Dam is a state within a state. It
operates under a unique set of laws enshrined in the
amended Roxby Downs Indenture Act.” Dr Jim Green,
national nuclear campaigner, Friends of the Earth

MUA: MUA Stands With Traditional Owners To Oppose Nuclear Dump
http://www.mua.org.au/news/mua-stands-with-traditional-owners-to-oppose-nucle/
11 Jul 12: “The Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) is proud
to host an anti-nuclear rally against the proposed nuclear
dump site at Muckaty this Thursday in Darwin.
The rally will be held at Stokes Hill Wharf and is expected
to attract wide-ranging support, with a number of MUA
officials from around Australia in attendance.
The rally will be held on the seven-year anniversary of
Muckaty being selected as the site for a nuclear waste
facility – which is still opposed by traditional owners,
the NT community and community and environmental groups
from around Australia.
“The MUA has been proud to support the traditional owners
who are opposed to the construction of the proposed dump in
their community,” said MUA NT Organiser Thomas Mayor.
“The MUA is also very concerned that our members would have
to handle this wastewhen it enters the Port of Darwin,
bound for Muckaty when the emergency response capabilities
in Darwin do not exist for such a dangerous cargo.
“The MUA will be attending the rally in force, and will
continue to oppose the dump.””

but the Northern Territory Department of Education and
Training (NT DET) appears to have finally dropped their
much-criticised policy of Compulsory Teaching in English
for the First Four Hours of Each School Day. Checking the
department’s policies today, it seems to have been quietly
removed. As one of the many who criticised and lobbied
against this policy, this is gratifying news and I can

and ask ourselves… What has their sacrifices meant for me

inappropriate on many levels. Uncle Dootch says the court
