Turning their backs on Maralinga

Maralinga was described in this Sun Herald article on 5 Dec 1954 as “a remote and uninhabited part of South Australia”.

Spin and deceit, naivety and ignorance are not new.

For a perspective 50 years on read this article by John Keane in The Age on 11 May 2003.

ABC TV’s Message Stick televised the Anangu people’s story in October 2009.  It shows men turning their backs on an atomic explosion.  A picture is worth a thousand words, as they say.
