A win for Kakadu

Send a message of thanks and congratulations to Jeffrey Lee at: ecnt.org/awinforkakadu In 2013 -- after decades of fighting -- Djok Elder Jeffrey Lee successfully ended the threat of uranium mining on his country. His land at Koongarra has been included in the World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park in Australia's Northern Territory - and permanently protected from mining. The protection of Koongarra is a powerful recognition of Jeffrey's vision and a lasting victory for both Aboriginal and environmental rights. Jeffrey's country is now safe but Kakadu is not. Mirarr country to the north of Koongarra is still threatened by uranium mining. The victory at Koongarra is extraordinary but as Jeffrey has made clear, more needs to be done: "I hope that one day Kakadu will be truly complete with the Mirarr lands at Ranger and Jabiluka included in the National Park."

KOONGARRA NOW PROTECTED FOREVER FROM URANIUM MINING!
 
06:28
CANBERRA, Australia, February 7, 2013 (ENS) -- After 34 years of campaigning to keep uranium mining out of his ancestral land of Koongarra, Djok Senior Traditional Owner Jeffrey Lee sat in the House of Representatives Wednesday to watch this land be protected forever. Environment Minister Tony Burke introduced a bill to repeal the Koongarra Project Area Act -- a 1979 law excluding Koongarra from the original boundaries of Kakadu National Park because of its potential to be the site for a uranium mine. Koongarra in Australia's Northern Territory "In 2010, the Government promised Mr. Lee that we would incorporate Koongarra into Kakadu National Park, to ensure that the threat of mining was banished forever," Burke said. Koongarra is an area of native woodland of great environmental and cultural significance, now incorporated within the boundaries of Kakadu National Park. Kakadu is located within the Alligator Rivers Region of the Northern Territory of Australia, 171 kilometers southeast of the territorial capital, Darwin. The Koongarra uranium deposit is estimated at about 14,000 tonnes. Mining companies, most recently the French company AREVA, have been trying to mine the deposit for decades despite the opposition of traditional owners. Lee said, "This is a great day for me, my country and my culture. My mind is at peace now that I know that there will be no mining at Koongarra and that Djok lands will be protected forever in Kakadu National Park." "My mothers and grandmothers who taught me about the plants and animals, my uncles and aunties who shared their knowledge, to all the elders and my creation ancestors -- I give my humble respect for standing here today," he said. "I have said no to uranium mining at Koongarra because I believe that the land and my cultural beliefs are more important than mining and money. Money comes and goes, but the land is always here, it always stays if we look after it and it will look after us," he said.

I shot the footage for this video over 4 months whilst living and working in Kakadu National Park. I was invited onto the lands of the traditional owners to do so and would ride my motorbike out into the floodplains looking for wildlife and buffalo every day. When I watch this video now, I get emotional as it takes me back to the places I have been, and the risks I took to get this footage. Kakadu is a magical place. I hope you also enjoy the video.

Friends of the Earth campaigners and aboriginal rights campaigners led the protest outside the meeting in London on Thursday. The campaigners were there to raise concerns about plans for a gigantic uranium mine on Aboriginal land at Jabiluka in the Kakadu National Park, Australia. Jabiluka is in the Alligator rivers region of the Northern Territory, about 30 km east of Darwin. The mine site is surrounded by the Kakadu National Park, which is world heritage listed and is on land has been traditionally owned by the Mirrar Aboriginal people. The Aboriginal Mirrar people regard Jabiluka as their ancestral home and a sacred site. The Mirrar have led opposition to the development of Jabiluka, which has resulted in major protests all over Australia and over 500 arrests They point to the damage done by the Ranger mine, which they say has left 20 million tonnes of tailings (a radioactive mining by product) in spoil heaps around its operations. Rio Tinto inherited the Jabiluka development following their takeover of Australian mining company North Limited last year. Likely buyers would include French nuclear utility Cogema.

National authorities have admitted that Australian uranium was present at all of the compromised reactors, and Australian uranium producers have confirmed that they supply fuel to the Japanese nuclear operators. In fact, the Ranger uranium mine in World Heritage listed Kakadu national park was established on the basis of an agreement between our two governments. On visiting the mine, and seeing for the first time the source of the Fukushima fuel, Akira Kawasaki from Peace Boat reflects on our shared suffering, and shared responsibility to work towards a nuclear free future

ABC TV news Naoto Kan meets Mirarr
 
02:19
Former Japanese Prime Minister visits Mirarr country to discuss shared nuclear concerns The Mirarr traditional owners of parts of Kakadu National Park, including the Ranger and Jabiluka uranium deposits, today welcomed former Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan to their traditional lands. As Prime Minister when the Fukushima nuclear reactor crisis began in March 2011, Mr Kan considered the full-scale evacuation of Tokyo in response to the emergency and subsequently made the decision to shut down all of Japan’s nuclear reactors. In October 2011 the Australian Safeguards and Non-Proliferation Office (ASNO) confirmed the Fukushima nuclear crisis was directly fuelled by uranium from Australia. At the time Mirarr senior traditional owner Yvonne Margarula wrote a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon expressing her concern and sadness at the devastation that uranium from her lands was causing in Japan: “This is an industry we never supported in the past and want no part of in the future. We are all diminished by the events unfolding at Fukushima,” Ms Margarula wrote at the time. The chairwoman of Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation, Annie Ngalmirama, said today: “Our people have lived with the consequences of unwanted uranium mining for over three decades and we are very sad about the ongoing disaster in Japan. I am glad Mr Kan has come to witness the impacts at the start of the nuclear cycle. Mr Kan’s country is hurting because of uranium, here he will see that the nuclear industry is hurting Mirarr people also.” GAC CEO Justin O’Brien said: “There is a long history between Mirarr country and Japan. Mining began at Ranger - against the wishes of the Mirarr – because of agreements between the Australian and Japan governments. “Mr Kan’s visit marks a new chapter in the longstanding partnership between our two countries. We will discuss the ways in which uranium has damaged both Mirarr country and Japan. We will look at ways we can highlight the human rights and environmental problems at the front end of the nuclear cycle and working together towards peaceful energy sources and better outcomes for all people.” From Kakadu Mr Kan will travel to Perth to meet with community groups and parliamentarians and to visit a wave power facility.

Australian Uranium Fuelled Fukushima

On March 11th 2011 the world watched in horror as news emerged from Japan of the devastating earthquake, tsunami and subsequent nuclear emergency at Fukushima. Two yaers later over 150,000 people cannot return to their homes and farms because of radiation and the long-term contamination footprint is not yet known. The Mirarr people of Kakadu - from whose land uranium is mined and shipped to many countries including Japan - were especially saddened to learn of the nuclear disaster and the ongoing impact on so many people's lives. The Ranger uranium mine was imposed on the Mirarr thirty years ago and Mirarr Senior Traditional Owner Yvonne Margarula wrote to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, stating her people's sadness at the events at Fukushima, reiterating Mirarr opposition to the Jabiluka development and urging the Secretary-General to include the viewpoint of Indigenous people (from whose land the majority of mined uranium is sourced) in his deliberations on the nuclear industry. It has since been confirmed that Australian uranium was present in the stricken reactors. As we reflect on the impact of one of the world's worst ever nuclear disasters let us never forget the ongoing negative consequences of the nuclear industry.

It covers an area of 19,804 km2 (7,646 sq mi),[2] extending nearly 200 kilometres from north to south and over 100 kilometres from east to west. It is the size of Slovenia, about one-third the size of Tasmania, or nearly half the size of Switzerland. The Ranger Uranium Mine, one of the most productive uranium mines in the world, is surrounded by the park. Aboriginal people have occupied the Kakadu area continuously for Kakadu National Park | Travel in Europe | Video Travel at least 40,000 years. Kakadu National Park is renowned for the richness of its Aboriginal cultural sites. There are more than 5,000 recorded art sites illustrating Aboriginal culture over thousands of years. The archaeological sites demonstrate Aboriginal occupation for at least 20,000 and possibly up to 40,000 years. Kakadu wetlands The cultural and natural values of Kakadu National Park were recognised internationally when the park was placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. This is an international register of properties that are recognised as having outstanding cultural or natural values of international significance. Kakadu was listed in three stages: stage 1 in 1981, stage 2 in 1987, and the entire park in 1992. Approximately half of the land in Kakadu is aboriginal land under the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976, and most of the remaining land is currently under claim by Aboriginal people. The areas of the park that are owned by Aboriginal people are leased by the traditional owners to the Director of National Parks to be managed as a national park. The remaining area is commonwealth land vested under the Director of National Parks. All of Kakadu is declared a national park under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.More Info : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kakadu_National_Park

Jabiru features a small town plaza that includes a video souvenir shop, a supermarket, bank, tackle shop, cafe, hairdresser, post office, news agency, bank and bakery (behind the fire station) as well as government, Northern Land Council offices, Magistrates Courts and emergency services (Police, Fire and Ambulance). During the Wet season (October to April), Jabiru experiences heavy rain that often results in wide spread flooding along the Arnhem Highway and Kakadu Highway. During the 2006-2007 Jabiru had its biggest wet season cutting both highways. The Arnhem Highway was cut off for several weeks as the West Aligator bridge was severely damaged. Jabiru town is administered by the Jabiru Town Council, whose council chambers are in the Town Plaza.

The reform would see a 40% tax placed upon mining giants Rio Tinto and other mining companies within Australia. NIB: But it's no minor issue. Already, BHP is reconsidering future iron mining projects in Western Australia. Which got us thinking... there are currently only three active uranium mines in Australia: Kakadu National Park. NICK: Kakadu! NIB: Jabiluka. NICK: Jabiluka, you beauty! NIB: And Radium Hill. NICK: R... Radium Hill. NIB: Yet Australia has the largest uranium reserves in the world. NICK: I wonder what it would be like if we ended up mining all of that uranium... UUUUUUU UUUUUUU UUUUUUU UUUUUUU [The chemical symbol of Uranium is U] We've got bars that glow gamma rays Radiation powers the place Uranium Deep underneath Australia Below the dusty plain Uranium is in the soil But is it there in vein? Got to dig down (Vrlll vrllll) Deep under ground (It's found underground) Time for nuclear power Cuz the industry's a boom (BOOM!) Those oxides we will stockpile Watch our market shares mushroom Let's go all out (Drill down where it's found) Hope for no fallout (Your hair might fall out) Huge coal mining tax to be payed Solar power dies in the shade Birds hit hydro-electric fan blades Uranium "All employees are reminded to wash their protective underwear after use." Can you name the noble gases making you all cough? It's like that Chernobyl crisis leaking... oops, we're stuffed Uranium "Marge, the acid rains are here!" Uranium "My geraniums!" We run far to make our escape The extra leg helps us to keep pace Like a one man three-legged race Uranium Here at the plant we watch our own skin bake Turning to pink then glows and starts to flake Better escape or we will all vaporise BHP must now come and compensate Nuclear families in every state Got the green lung and lasers shoot from our eyes Everyone can now fly through space (I'm brainier!) We've become a new super race (Big cranium!) I've got a new X-men name IT'S MACE! Uranium! Nuclear construction Build that power plant Of the world resources We've got 23% We're mining all these minerals Refining what we take (So fine!)

Plans for tourist hub in Australia's biggest national park run into treacherous water amid croc threat: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/11/17/plans-tourist-hub-australias-biggest-national-park-run-treacherous/. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9Sa0bRTci0S9pDKStElgmw?sub_confirmation=1  In the remote township of Jabiru in the heart of Kakadu, Australia’s largest national park, the traditional Aboriginal owners are in a quandry.  They want to attract more tourists in a bid to salvage the area but are grappling with a growing problem: crocodiles.  The town, about 150 miles from the northern city of Darwin, was built in 1982 to service a nearby uranium mine and is due to be demolished when the mining ends in 2021.    To try to save the town, the Mirarr people, whose ancestors have lived on the land for some 65,000 years, want to turn it into a tourist hub, proposing an ambitious £250 million plan for an international airport, eco-lodge and – significantly – a “croc-free” lake that would allow visitors to safely seek respite from the tropical heat.  But this plan has now hit an obstacle, as experts have suggested that protecting swimmers in the lake from the region’s growing crocodile population would be far too expensive to implement.   In the past three years, at least ten deadly saltwater crocodiles have been removed, including a male that was twelve feet long.  John Lever, founder and owner of Koorana Crocodile Farm in Queensland, said he believed it was possible to make the lake crocodile-free but this would require an underwater fence that would need to be replaced every five or six years and would probably not be worth the cost.  “I know the lake well, but they are constantly pulling crocs out of it,” he told The Telegraph.  “Obviously people in the hot tropical environment want to immerse themselves in the water. Anything is doable if you throw enough money at it. But I am not sure it would have a return.”  The lake debate follows growing concerns about the threat from crocodiles, whose populations have soared across northern Australia following bans on hunting from the 1970s.  In the Northern Territory, there were an estimated 3,000 saltwater crocodiles when a hunting ban was imposed in 1971, but there are now believed to be more than 100,000.  In some areas, crocodile populations have returned to the levels they were at before the arrival of British settlers.    Grahame Webb, director of Crocodylus Park in Darwin, said crocodile-proofing the lake would be an “engineering feat” and would require a 20-foot fence.  “[Crocodiles] can move overland — you can't just block them off in one way,” he told ABC News. “They can find their ways around things, so you'd really have to enclose it in some way that they just couldn't get through."  Attacks have been occurring with greater frequency, including in and around Kakadu, a World Heritage-listed park that spans 7,700 square miles and is about half the size of Switzerland.  The attacks include the death last year of a 47-year-old man who was taken while walking along a crossing at East Alligator River on the park’s eastern outskirts.  In 2014, a 12-year-old boy died while swimming near Jabiru and a 15-year-old was bitten on both arms but survived.  Following the removal of six c #Plans, #tourist, #Australia, #biggest, #national, #park, #into, #treacherous, #water, #amid, #croc, #threat #Australiananimals, #Standard, #Animals, #Australia, #WorldNews, #News, #Crocodiles

WUS 2015 Uranium mining & the nuclear fuel chain legacy in Australia
 
41:19
DAVE SWEENEY (AUSTRALIA) Australian Conservation Foundation PETER WATTS (AUSTRALIA) Aboriginal representative of the Arabunna People, Co-Chair for Australian Nuclear Free Alliance THE SYMPOSIUM The World Uranium Symposium addressed issues arising from the nuclear fuel chain, from mining uranium to its end-uses and byproducts for civilian or military purposes. Both scientific and community-based, the Symposium was organized around the following themes: health, environment, economy, ethics, governance, human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples. Open to the public, the symposium had hosted more than 300 people per day from 14 to 16 April 2015, and had included local, national and international representatives from the sectors of health, research, industry, education, civil society, policy makers and indigenous communities. local, national and/or international media were present. All presentations of the symposium will be posted in electronic formats (text and / or videos) after the Symposium, in French and / or English. • April 14 (Day 1): Uranium mines and the nuclear life cycle : health and environmental issues • April 15 (Day 2): Civil and military nuclear : ethics, economics and political issues • April 16 (Day 3): Human rights, indigenous peoples' rights and governance issues ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED The Symposium is jointly organized by Physicians for Global Survival (1985 Nobel Peace Prize), the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Nature Québec, the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility and the Coalition pour que le Québec ait meilleure mine. It also receives support from the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (Swiss chapter), the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Sustainable Development Institute, the Cree Nation of Mistissini, MiningWatch Canada, and a number of other local, national and international partners. CONTEXT The Symposium is occurring at a time when many organizations and governments question the future of nuclear power, currently providing about 11% of the world’s electricity. The year 2015 also marks the seventieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the corresponding United Nations negotiations of the Non Proliferation Treaty for the prevention and the abolition of nuclear arms. It will also see the tabling on a new UN treaty on climate change. Canada is one of the largest producers and exporters of uranium worldwide, yet its nuclear energy output is in relative decline. Only two provinces still operate nuclear reactors: Ontario and New Brunswick. While uranium has been primarily mined from Saskatchewan, the provinces of British Columbia and Nova Scotia have officially banned uranium mining. Quebec recently shut down its sole nuclear reactor and has tasked the Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement (BAPE) with conducting an investigation on issues related to uranium mining. It is expected to release its report by May 20 2015. The Symposium aims to tackle these different issues and to provide recommendations to decision makers to better ensure protection for the human health, global security and a safe environment

April 22, 2009_Dianne Stokes_World Nuclear Fuel Cycle Conference public meeting_sydney.mp4
 
07:33
The World Nuclear Fuel Cycle Conference is meeting in Sydney April 21-23, 2009. This forum will be used to promote and further entrench Australias involvement in the global nuclear industry. As people around the world demand action on climate change, governments continue to use the climate crisis to push forward regressive and corporate driven policies. There is an aggressive global push to rebrand nuclear power as a green, clean solution to climate change, with claims a nuclear renaissance is ahead. Nuclear Power is No Solution to Climate Change: too dirty, too dangerous. Carbon emissions calculation must take into account the entire life cycle of uranium; mining, processing, transportation, construction and de-commissioning of reactors and radioactive waste disposal and management. Electricity production accounts for only about 25% of carbon emissions globally; doubling nuclear power would reduce greenhouse emissions by less than 5%. In Australia, building a nuclear reactor to supply the capital cities in all six states would reduce national emissions by just 4%. Further, there is still no method for storage or disposal of high level radioactive waste that can guarantee to isolate it from the environment, workers and communities for the hundreds of thousand of years it remains dangerous. And despite safeguards on uranium exports, as Minister Anthony Albanese has said, you can guarantee that uranium mining will lead to nuclear waste, but you can't guarantee it won't lead to nuclear weapons. Australias Role: Beginning and Ending the Global Nuclear Fuel Chain Since the ALP dropped its no new uranium mines policy in April 2007, there has been a plethora of uranium exploration applications across the NT, SA and WA. Olympic Dam Uranium Mine in SA, is proposed to expand four fold to become the biggest uranium mine in the world. At APEC in 2007, the Australian government became a signatory to the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP), further entrenching its role in the global nuclear fuel chain. Australia has 38% of the worlds known uranium deposits and Resources Minister Martin Ferguson has expressed a wish for Australia to become the largest miner and exporter of uranium in the world. Remaining a signatory of GNEP will increase pressure for Australia to take back high-level radioactive waste produced in overseas reactors in a leasing style arrangement. Nuclear Waste Community Resistance The ALP government is plowing ahead with the plan to force a radioactive waste dump on communities in the NT, despite promising to repeal Howard era legislation- the Commonwealth Radioactive Waste Management Act- that makes the dump possible. Increasing economic disadvantage in remote areas means many Aboriginal communities are feeling pressure to accept nuclear projects on their country as a source of jobs and income- sometimes in exchange for essential infrastructure like roads and housing. Despite this pressure, communities continue to resist the expansion of the nuclear industry in Australia. Successful community campaigns fought the uranium mine proposed for Jabiluka in Kakadu National Park. Central Australian residents are mobilising against uranium exploration at Angela Pamela, 25 km south of Alice Springs in the towns water catchment area. There is continued and strong opposition to the planned federal radioactive waste dump in the NT, already over a year behind schedule. It is important for national awareness and mobilisation to support communities directly targeted by the industry and workers whose health has been impacted. The Rudd Government must be held accountable for its radioactive rollout.
