Water: Kwatye for Wilora

Sunday, 21 April 2019 - 11:00am to 11:30am
Guests from Wilora

On the 26th of January 2019 at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy  in Canberra in a a yurt,  I interviewed three women from Wilora ...  a small town just off the Stuart Hwy 300 ks North of Alice Springs .

This is the area of the last state sanctioned massacre in Australia in 1928. 

The women  are from  the Kaytetye aboriginal group in Central Australia and are raising the alarm, again, about the unsafe levels of  uranium  and other dirty solutes in their bore drinking water.
This unjust situation has been going on for far too long as successive governments fail to act . 
Not far away a new mine proposal at Mount Peake causes concern over fragile and little understood groundwater sources. 
Now a crowd fundraiser has been started to bring water tanks, a filtration system,  life, peace of mind  and health to Wilora
