Discussing the Future of Australia's Energy Sector

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventWorkshop/course/forumAcademic

Description

A panel of activists, artists, Traditional Owners and researchers examine the fast and slow violence caused by the most toxic mine in Australia, Glencore’s McArthur River Mine. The world's largest lead, zinc and silver mine, it operates on the lands of the Gurdanji, Mara, Yanyuwa and Garrwa peoples in the remote Gulf Country of the Northern Territory, polluting their waterways and damaging the rich First Nations cultural heritage found in the area. Although the mine is set to operate until 2038, the lasting environmental and social impact of this mine will extend for 1000 years after mining activities cease.
