Sleeping underneath the ground, there is an old lizard known as Kalta the sleepy lizard. The lizard ain’t so sleepy anymore.
BHP Billiton is mining right into that Lizard’s body.
The Federal Government approved the expansion of the Olympic Dam uranium mine in Roxby Downs in October 2011, to make it the biggest uranium mine in the world.
Kalta is angry and wants revenge. Arabunna elder Kevin Buzzacott is calling the people of the world to help the lizard shut down the mine. He is calling for people to come and heal the land in the name of peace and justice for the next 10,000 generations to come.
The land is being irreversibly poisoned in and around Roxby Downs. The tailings dam is causing dust and ground water contamination and contamination of its own workers.
The uranium is taken all over the world and used to kill the land and all its creatures. It’s destroying lives not only in Fukushima with the reactor meltdown, but in the depleted uranium shells that children play with in the streets of Iraq and Kosovo.
With the Governments numerous attempts to put a nuclear waste dump at Muckaty in the Northern Territory. There is also the danger, that radioactive waste will be brought back and opening Australia up to accepting nuclear waste from all over the world. Lets stop the deadly chain where it starts.
The land the lizard and the creatures of this earth are summoning everybody who cares about the future of this country. To the gates of the Olympic Dam mine at Roxby Downs in South Australia.
