"We will fight to protect our Country. That is a fact of life."
-Yvonne Margarula, Mirrar Senior Traditional Owner
In 1977 the Aboriginal opposition to the Ranger Uranium proposal was overridden with the words "their opposition shall not be allowed to prevail". Our people were told that the rest of Australia wanted uranium mining within Kakadu National Park. Two decades later and the voices of the Mirrar are again drowned by corporate and government ineptitude and marginalising processes. We welcome your help to spread this story before it becomes history.
