Sneaky, dirty business: BHP Olympic Dam expansion

BHP is up to their old tricks again, trying to expand their dirty uranium mine and sneaky industrial practices, by spinning it with the tired old hype that it will create jobs. But even a cursory glance at their recent track record as an employer shows that looking after workers is not really part of their game plan.

Arabunna Elder & Law Man Uncle Kevin Buzzacott has long lead the fight against this toxic mine and remains forefront of resistance to this latest threat to Arabunna & Kokatha lands & water. He joins Robbie Thorpe on 3CR's Fire First program, to yarn up about how the ongoing fight to protect country needs all of our support, everywhere.
