Muckaty – Two FOE forums – Sydney 27 and Wollongong 6:30 pm

“Dear all,

I am writing from the Yellowcake Road collective to invite you to an event we are holding at the end of July. Yellowcake Road is a community-based collective campaigning alongside Traditional Owners to stop the proposed national nuclear waste dump being forced on Muckaty Station in the Northern Territory. We are focusing the campaign on social justice issues, health concerns and the risk of accidents on local roads from Lucas Heights nuclear facility in Sydney all the way to Muckaty. Yellowcake Road is going on a Nuclear Freeways Tour to visit communities along the proposed waste transport route, work with Traditional Owners and other community leaders to help build local campaigns against the dump.

We are organising two forums, in Sydney and Wollongong on the 27th and 28th July respectively, to hear from Muckaty Traditional Owners who are travelling a long way to share the story of what they are facing on their
country. We will also hear from local unionists and provide the opportunity for questions and discussion. The details of the events are on the posters attached {not on copy which came to songlines – contact Angela for more info) please come along and invite your friends and colleagues. If you have an events e-list, we’d love a mention!

An RSVP to yellowcakeroad@gmail.com would be appreciated for catering purposes, and please let us know if you would like any more information on the project, the events or the collective.

We hope to see you there!
