Nuclear test veterans to push for legal action
Maralinga veterans say nuclear test study flawed
Medal in mail' disappoints nuclear test subjects

Australian Aboriginals suffer from the on-going effects of British nuclear testing which was conducted in the Maralinga Lands of the Victoria Desert. Archie Barton, the administrator of the Maralinga Tjarutja (Land Rights Council) describes the experience of his people.

"In 1952, the Aboriginals who had inhabited the Maralinga Lands were placed in a mission at Yalata, several hundred miles South of their tribal land…. Elders tried to return to their land in 1955, but were sent back to Yalta by nuclear test personnel. As an alternative home for the Maralinga people the Yalata Mission failed, [it] thus caused [the] dislocating [of] traditions which resulted in the highest rate of alcohol-related illnesses and deaths in any Australian community" (see Poison Fire Sacred Earth: testimonies, lectures and conclusions, p. 175).

The Maralinga people finally returned to their land in 1990, but like the natives of the South Pacific Islands, they returned to a contaminated home, with their traditional ways of life having been forever corrupted by the age of nuclear technology.

Maralinga - Australia's nuclear waste cover-up

Alan Parkinson is a mechanical and nuclear engineer who lives in Canberra. He has just written a book about the clean up of the British atomic bomb test site at Maralinga in South Australia. In April 2000 a $108 million clean up of the site was declared a success. However, leaked documents and some experts do not agree and suggest that the legacy of that failed clean up will affect the Australian population for many years to come.

In addition to the radioactive contamination of previous nuclear tests conducted by the UK, British Nuclear Fuels is currently involved in formal negotiations to construct the Pangea waste dump on sacred Aboriginal land. Both federal and state legislature in Australia have rejected this proposal, nevertheless, the marketing initiative of Pangea continues.
