Nuclear waste fight sparks $17m claim,  AMOS AIKMAN,  The Australian, July 26, 2017Traditional owners who want a nuclear waste dump on their land are suing the Northern Land Council for more than $17 million, claiming that the federal statutory authority neglected its duty to support their bid to use the land to ­alleviate crippling poverty.

Documents filed in the Federal Court allege that the NLC, which is legally bound to consult with ­indigenous landholders and pursue their best interests, failed to do so repeatedly in relation to proposals to house Australia’s low-level nuclear waste at Muckaty Station……..

The first applicant, Ngapa traditional owner Jason Bill, welcomed the serving of legal papers yesterday.

“Great news: that’s the thing that my family have been waiting for,” Mr Bill said.

“All we were asking for is a low-level waste dump … we’ve looked into it and heard about it from the professionals, and it’s not going to damage the environment.”…..
