2011-December-ALP Conference (Sydney)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Muckaty Traditional Owner’s Dianne Stokes and Kylie Sambo were joined by representatives of Beyond Nuclear Initiative, Friends of the Earth, the Australian Conservation Foundation and Greenpeace outside the national ALP Conference 2011, calling on delegates to oppose Gillard’s plan to sell uranium to India, which is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Delegates were also invited to attend a forum and photo exhibition in solidarity with Muckaty Traditional Owners currently fighting the imposition of a national radioactive waste dump.

The ALP national conference voted to sell uranium 205-186 after a very heated debate.
