8:10am Trouble in Takayna: Scott Jordan of Save The Tarkine comes on the show to remind us of the Tasmanian Liberal Party's failure to deal with 80,000 cubic metres of acid-producing waste left at the failed Nelson Bay River Mine site. We also hear about the scheduled reopening of motorsport leisure trails on the Takayna coastal region, desecrating sacred Aboriginal cultural sites. To voice your concern about this action by the Tasmanian state government, join in the forum held by the Bob Brown Foundation in Narrm (Melbourne) this Wednesday evening.
