      26 May 14: "THE main street of a Territory town was flooded
      with more than 250 people protesting the proposed nuclear
      waste dump at Muckaty Station yesterday. Tennant Creek was
      overrun by a sea of yellow signs reading "Don’t radioactive
      waste the Territory" as kids led the march, holding up
      homemade banners and chanting "land rights not dump sites".
      ... The site is part of a land trust shared by five
      interrelated indigenous groups – Milway, Ngapa, Ngarrka,
      Wirntiku and Yapayapa. Most traditional owners oppose the
      plan but some said "yes" to the proposed storage facility."

      radioactive waste facility, the first of its kind in
      Australia, has been a source of contention for close to a
      decade. ... Dianne Stokes, who is one of the traditional
      owners fighting against the facility, says the Tennant
      Creek community is united in its opposition to the proposal."
