Director: Ned Lander
Three decades later Kakadu uranium is still shipped out of Darwin to fuel nuclear reactors in Japan, Europe and elsewhere.
The film includes rare footage of Mirarr Senior Traditional Owner Toby Gangale stating clear opposition to mining on his country and documents his prescient concerns about uranium. It shows how the Federal Government overrode the human rights of Kakadu's Traditional Owners in order to impose a toxic industry in a World Heritage Area.
The film provides a unique insight into a story that continues to generate heartache and headlines today.
Australia, 1980-2011, 51 min, English/Gunwinku, Subtitle English, Director Ned Lander.
