Sorry its been a while since the last update but with the Court case and participation in the No Nukes World Social Forum in Paris, France and the Cop23 meeting in Bonn, Germany it has been quite a busy time…
The end of the year is now drawing near already and we are still waiting for a decision on the Supreme court case to stop the Yeelirrie uranium mine.
Hopefully in the new Year we will have a decision in favor of protecting Yeelirrie
This is an incredible undertaking by these three strong Tjiwarl women who are trying to protect important cultural heritage sites that are part of the Seven Sisters Dreaming songline.
