Aboriginal land: Maralinga




I remember the name Maralinga - the Place of Thunder - from teenage wanna-be activist days, maybe literature provided through Greenpeace or the Canterbury Environment Centre...first British atomic test there was 1952 so two, going on three, generations asking for justice.



Anyways, the tangata whenua now have that land back, in many ways just the start of another battle 'cos it ain't half-life toxic mum...
