The Lizard Bites Back Info Night Adelaide
Tues 21st June 6-8pm
GANG HQ at front of the Adelaide Bike Kitchen
22 Gibson St. Bowden
The Lizards Bites Back protest festival will take place at the gates of the Olympic Dam uranium mine (or close by) from the 1st – 3rd of July this year. This event follows on from The Lizards Revenge in July 2012, which saw approximately 500 people converge near the gates of the mine for five days of workshops, actions and music.
With SA currently facing two nuclear waste dump proposals, and BHP Billiton projected to start a heap leach trial by the end of the year as part of an alternative expansion plan, this is an important time to mobilise and send the message that there is strong community opposition to any expansion of the nuclear fuel cycle in SA.
In July we will re-focus on the source of the problem, highlighting an absurd global situation where we keep mining a mineral we have no idea how to dispose of safely, whilst proposals are again being made to force nuclear waste dumps on communities that do not want them.
Join us at the Adelaide Bike Kitchen for an informal discussion about the event, including what to expect, why we are going, logistics, legals and anything else people want to discuss.
This will also be a great opportunity to organise carpooling, so if you have a car and are looking for passengers, or you need a lift, come along and we can connect drivers with passengers.
The Lizard Bites Back will be held on Kokatha country.
