Martu Keep Fighting

Tuesday 30th June / posted by Chris Wheeldon

In case you missed it, last Monday’s episode of Q&A was a little controversial.

Somewhat overshadowed by Zakky Mallah’s comments, was a question posed by Martu representative Curtis Taylor regarding the Kintyre Uranium Project.

Curtis and a delegation of Martu people were in Sydney to unveil a painting at the Sydney Museum of Contemporary Art, which explored their relationship with country and the waters that flow over and under the earth.

They were on a mission to raise the alarm about the uranium mine set to be dug on their lands, against their wishes.

RTRFM reporter Luke Pegrum decided to investigate the issue further, and what he found was a complicated mess of high hopes and grubby deals.
