Raucous Anti-AUKUS Caucus III
Join us for the third Raucous Anti-AUKUS Caucus.
Hear from another fantastic line-up of speakers. Featuring:
Aunty Sue Coleman Haseldine - elder of the Kokatha people and the honorary co-president of the Australian Nuclear Free Alliance (ANFA).
ANFA is the First Nations led alliance that helped to build the successful campaign to stop the Jabiluka uranium mine in the Northern Territory, and more recently, the proposed national nuclear waste dumps in South Australia and Muckaty in the NT.
Aunty Sue is a mother, grandmother and a great grandmother. She is also a survivor of the Emu Fields atomic bomb testing of 1953.
Aunty Sue's traditional lands, the Kakotha, extend over some 140,000 km2 and include Tarcoola, Kingoonyah, Pimba and the McDouall Peak as well as modern townships of Roxby Downs and Woomera. The lands extend west as far as Ooldea and the Ooldea Range while the northern frontier runs up to the Stuart Range and Lake Phillipson. The Kakotha boundary is with Barngarla lands, where the Federal government currently propose to establish a nuclear waste facility at Kimba.
