Nowhere Here in the Middle

Indigenous living on the land in the Northern Territory of Australia is currently threatened by an international radioactive waste dump proposal pushed by the Australian government onto Aboriginal communities. Reminiscent of what happened to the Yakama Indian Nation in Washington state, United States of America, Muckaty Station could be the next Hanford Nuclear Reservation. As observed by one of the Aborigines interviewed, “It will destroy our dreaming, and we’ll have nothing left.”
