People power can win! In June this year, the people of Muckaty NT won an 8-year battle to stop the dumping of radioactive waste on their land. In May this year, the community of Bentley/Lismore successfully stopped Metgasco from drilling in to tight sands gas near Bentley. Hear these stories and discuss community successes with the people who were there: Dianne Stokes (Muckaty, NT), Uncle Yilla and Crystal Jongen(Bentley) plus more… joined by community activists from Brasil sharing success stories from their local campaigns.
