There are old ancient stories set deep in the Flinders Ranges in South Australia. In a place called Barndioota, once part of a thriving trade route across Australia, archaeological evidence brings to life ancient stories, millennia old songlines that teach us about the land and its people.
The first one to ever be registered in the South Australian Aboriginal Heritage AARD database is the story of Punga Pudinah.
Using modern archaeological tools the story was verified as culturally important at the specific location of Barndioota.
The Federal Australian Government plans to locate a nuclear waste dump at Barndioota - this will be devastating not only to this ancient culture but also to the vastly important ground water supply in the region. A region that sits at the edge of the desert in Australia's Outback.
The irony is South Australia's Tourism Commission wants you to visit! It is indeed a beautiful place - check it out:

We need to raise funds to stop the nuclear waste dump in the Flinders Ranges. The proposed site is near the beautiful Hookina waterhole, known by Aboriginal people as Punga Pudinah.
Water is the most precious resource out here at the edge of the desert. A spill or leakage of nuclear waste into the ground water will devastate the are area. Please read:
http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/fact-sheets/radwaste.html
"High-level wastes are hazardous because they produce fatal radiation doses during short periods of direct exposure. For example, 10 years after removal from a reactor, the surface dose rate for a typical spent fuel assembly exceeds 10,000 rem/hour – far greater than the fatal whole-body dose for humans of about 500 rem received all at once. If isotopes from these high-level wastes get into groundwater or rivers, they may enter food chains. The dose produced through this indirect exposure would be much smaller than a direct-exposure dose, but a much larger population could be exposed."
Please help us stop this terrible nuclear waste dump.
Your support will go a long way to provide the resources to stop this from happening. Donate today.

The Flinders Ranges & Outback of South Australia is to good to be a nuclear waste land.

The funds will be used for the campaign, to help cover cost of travel of traditional elders, to organise walk the storyline in spring, also to make t-shirt, merchandise, pamphlets and other costs that we need to stop this waste dump. Please help us achieve this

Traditional landholders in Australia have made an incalculable contribution to the evolution of humanity. They continue to stand for the truth that this planet is a living breathing conscious organism even in the face of institutional cruelty that has gone on for hundreds of years. I am in awe of the courage it takes to continually challenge the rapacious greed of men and women who have lost access to their hearts and souls.
