      20 Nov 13: "Newly minted NT Senator Nova Peris used her
      maiden speech to denounce plans to put a nuclear waste dump
      at Muckaty Station, raising concerns about the impact on
      indigenous people. Freelance writer Sally Whyte takes a
      look at the issue. In her maiden speech last week, the
      first indigenous woman to be elected to federal Parliament,
      NT Senator Nova Peris, issued a call to arms over a
      proposed nuclear waste dump at Muckaty Station. Peris said
      the NT facility would inflict "profound grief, suffering
      and loss on Aboriginal people"." Sally Whyte

      22 Nov 13: "THE Territory’s newest Senator and the first
      Indigenous woman to be elected to Federal Parliament has
      used her maiden speech to speak about the proposed nuclear
      waste dump at Muckaty. Nova Peris said she believed it was
      her duty to deal with issues, such as the location of the
      nuclear waste facility, honestly and openly. ... Ms Peris
      acknowledged Australia needed a nuclear waste management
      facility but said its location must be based on science,
      not politics."

      29 Nov 13: "MUCKATY traditional owners are pressing new
      Resources Minister, Ian Macfarlane, to uphold his promise
      to visit Tennant Creek and the site of the proposed nuclear
      waste dump. ... And traditional owner, Penny Phillips, wrote
      to Mr Macfarlane, urging him to meet with all groups. ...
      Prior to the September Federal election, she travelled to
      Canberra to meet with Gary Gray who succeeded Martin
      Ferguson as Resources Minister, encouraging him to visit,
      which he did. Now she wants the same from Mr Macfarlane."

      KIMBERLEY ABORIGINES' FIGHT FOR JAMES PRICE POINT IS NOW AGAINST WA'S PREMIER



      - Video

      Sydney Morning Herald:
      Kimberley Aborigines' fight for James Price point is now against WA's Premier

      The Goolarabooloo fought off Woodside, and are ready to fight Western Australia's Premier, too.
      http://www.smh.com.au/national/kimberley-aborigines-fight-for-james-price-point-is-now-against-was-premier-20131122-2y1f7.html
      23 Nov 13: "Before Australia's east coast had ever heard of
      James Price Point, even before the Broome township realised
      the high stakes, Goolarabooloo senior law man Phil Roe fought
      a guerilla-like battle against resources giant Woodside.
      It was Roe, a few mates and, of all things, a camel.
      For four years, Roe camped on his traditional land, a stretch
      of Kimberley coast earmarked for one of the biggest gas
      plants Australia had ever seen." Melissa Fyfe,

      23 Nov 13: "The battle over proposed natural gas plants
      near Broome captured the hearts of singer-songwriter Missy
      Higgins, musician John Butler and businessman-turned-environ
      mentalist Geoffrey Cousins. But since resources company
      Woodside withdrew from building one of Australia's largest
      gas hubs on the red-cliffed Kimberley coast, east-coast
      conservationists have been accused of retreating "back to
      their beautiful houses in Sydney", leaving behind an
      unresolved mess." Melissa Fyfe,
