"Nowhere here in the middle."
2007, 33 mins
Produced and Directed by Tara Jones.
If the government wanted to build a radioactive waste dump in your backyard...
and changed the law to to make it happen...
and told you it's perfectly safe..
what would you do?
The proposed radioactive waste dump is an integral component of the federal government's plan to expand Australia's Nuclear Industry.
An inspiring story of indigenous insight and resistance, 'Nowhere here in the Middle' travels to the Northern Territory to meet the people who live at the proposed sites, shedding light on the dark implications of the government's plans.
What the government calls "the middle of nowhere", these people call home.
"It's supreme scientific arrogance to say that we'll find a way to store radioactive waste safely for 1/4 million years, let alone 1/2 million years." Dr Helen Caldicott
Followed by a Q & A with Nat Wasley from Beyond Nuclear Initiative, Alice Springs
