Protesters against national radioactive waste dump march on Joy Baluch AM Bridge

Marco Balsamo

PROTEST: ‘Hundreds of people from across the state came together to rally 
against the proposed national radioactive waste management facility. …

‘ The rally was organised by the Barngarla people, just two days after
the Supreme Court of South Australia granted an interlocutory injunction
on the community postal ballot.

Barngarla man Harry Dare said it was important for people of all backgrounds
to stand together against the facility.

‘“United we can fight. We can’t fight singularly,” Mr Dare said. …

Adnyamathanha woman Candace Champion was among the guest speakers,
calling on the government to listen to the opinions of the traditional owners.

‘“I do not want to bring a child into this world knowing that I’m going to leave them
more burdens and heartbreak than blessings and a safe environment,” she said.

‘“You can study your whole life in a classroom, but my family have
studied, witnessed, watched and grown on that land for 60,000 years.”’
