Australians fighting to stop four disastrous uranium mines
August 27, 2018

Two articles today on Beyond Nuclear International, our story-telling blog site, each describing the devastating effect of four proposed uranium mines in Western Australia and the need to preserve the beauty and quiet of the pristine outback.

Fighting for life in the "place of death" describes the now 40-year-long struggle to stop the Yeelirrie uranium mine, with Traditional Owners and environmental groups in court in an endeavor to stop it. Read the story.

And Marcus Atkinson and his colleagues and friends are on a 250km walkabout right now to draw attention to the beauty of nature and what will be lost and even destroyed by uranium mines. You can read his description of that experience -- The wind that sings through the spinifex grass -- here.
