- Member for Barkly warns be wary of politicians selling waste dump !
The explosion of a 55-gallon drum of nuclear waste stored at a remote American dump earlier this year is a frightening reminder of the potential hazards associated with storing nuclear waste.
The explosion left the facility closed for months and according to the LA Times raised questions about the ability to safely manage other nuclear waste containers buried at the site.
With the Abbott and now Giles CLP Government keen to locate a nuclear waste dump on Aboriginal land in the Northern Territory, the Member for the Barkly Gerry Mc Carthy has warned traditional owners to be wary of politicians offering money.
- Australia’s ‘defining moment’ a disastrous moment
After Tony Abbott’s comments that colonisation was Australia’s “defining moment”, Warren Mundine raises his voice to say it was a “disastrous moment”.
- Turning a negative into a positive at Coober Pedy……
The distribution of a racist flyer in the lead up to the local town council election has angered and upset the Aboriginal community in Coober Pedy….but local man and Secretary of the Concerned Residents Group, Bundi Pantelis , says despite himself and other members being named in the flyer… the Concerned Residents Group has never agreed or endorsed in any way the views that it pushed.
Mr Pantelis says the author of the racist flyers had attended two of their meetings 12 months ago… but when he expressed his views about Aboriginal people he was told that he was no longer welcome to attend.
Mr Pantelis told CAAMA that the concerned Residents Group also contained a number of Aboriginal people and they had been dumbfounded that they were being accused of racial discrimination.

- Our world changed into a nightmare… overnight !
The Chair of the Prime Ministers Indigenous Advisory Council says the arrival of the First Fleet and subsequent colonisation of Australia was a defining moment, because it changed the world of his people into a nightmare… overnight.
Warren Mundine was responding to claims made by Mr Abbott late last week that the arrival of the First Fleet was THE defining moment in the history of this continent.
