Greens Senator at Jabiluka Blockade


Greens Senator Bob Brown arrives in Darwin today to travel to the Jabiluka  protest blockade.


On Tuesday morni ng Senator Brown will breakfast at the blockade with Grandmother and anti-Jabiluka uranium mine protester Ethel Reynolds. Ethel, 85, from Melbourne has travelled to Kakadu to be part of the blockade. Ethel is staying at the blockade camp with her granddaughter.


“I am going to show total support for the Mirrar people and to the blockaders,” said Senator Brown.


“The combined issues of the Mirrar people’s right to determine the future of their country and the issue of Australia exporting uranium to be part of the nuclear fuel cycle, make this the pre-eminent environmental issue for 1998.


“It will be a major issue in the upcoming Federal election,” said Senator Brown.
