The Parnngurr Community was set up in the 1980’s during the homelands movement, as a protest camp against uranium exploration. The community here and other Martu communities are now faced with the renewed threat of uranium mining by Cameco and Mitsubishi. The community has called for a walk from their community to the proposed uranium mine through the stunning Karlamilyi National Park.
