Submitted by Webmaster on Thu, 31/08/2006 - 09:12

People in numerous cities across Australia will today target Parsons Brinckerhoff, the private company contracted to assess the Federal Government's proposed sites for a Commonwealth nuclear waste dump in the Northern Territory.

A range of creative and diverse actions will occur at Parsons Brinckerhoff offices in Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Holly Creenaune, National Convenor of the Australian Student Environment Network said "Communities surrounding all of the sites being assessed in the Northern Territory ; Harts Range, Mt Everard, and Fishers Ridge, remain strongly opposed to hosting a nuclear waste dump for the next few thousand years."

"How well does the film handle the science? Admirably, I thought. It is remarkably up to date, with reference to some of the very latest research. For the most part, I think Gore gets the science right, just as he did in Earth in the Balance. The small errors don't detract from Gore's main point, which is that we in the United States have the technological and institutional ability to have a significant impact on the future trajectory of climate change."

Something dangerous is about to happen to the very heartland of Aboriginal Australia - and neither the traditional owners, nor you, have been warned.

Under the guise of promoting economic development for indigenous Australians, the Federal Government wants to ram through new legislation this Tuesday that actually jeopardises future generations of Aboriginal livelihoods. It's quite possibly the most important law you've never heard of.

It may not top the must-see list of many tourists. But to appreciate Shanghai's ambitious view of its future, there is no better place than the Urban Planning Exhibition Hall, a glass-and-metal structure across from People's Square. The highlight is a scale model bigger than a basketball court of the entire metropolis -- every skyscraper, house, lane, factory, dock, and patch of green space -- in the year .
