One Week, One Day from now...
Kevin Buzzacott, or Uncle Kev, is an elder of the Arabunna nation whose ongoing attempts to limit the expansion of the uranium mining industry in South Australia, and his attempts to increase awareness of the dangers this poses to his people in northern South Australia, has for years fallen on the deaf ears of apathetic governments.
Now, with the issue of nuclear power a hot topic issue once again in South Australia, we have the pleasure of welcoming Uncle Kev to this year's Students of Sustainability in Adelaide. In his appearances in the opening morning plenary and in his own workshop you can expect to be illuminated concerning the impacts of uranium mining and production on the native peoples in the less populous areas of the countries, including releasing unacceptable amounts of radiation and the depletion of the Great Artesian Basin at a rate of 33 million litres per day.
With the conference now only one week and one day away, if you have never heard of the impacts of the nuclear industry in South Australia, meeting and learning from Kevin Buzzacott is a great place to start.
Uncle Kev will be part of the panel of the Wednesday the 8th Plenary and will be hosting his own workshop Sunday the 12th at 1:40pm.
