Illustrations from the Quality of Life Report, the work of community leaders of the Aboriginal human services sector in South Australia, presented to the Nuclear Fuel Cycle Citizens’ Jury 2, late last month.

To quote from the report:  ‘The government wants us to have a conversation about nuclear. As Aboriginal community leaders and NGO service providers we say “No” to this proposal… We want the government to understand that we want a different conversation; one that focuses on unfinished business, including our experience of Maralinga; on the sickness that it created in our people and in the land; and the pain and loss that it caused. Our people need to have a future’.

The citizens’ jury was run by DemocracyCo, and more information about citizens’ juries and other research alternatives can be found at new Democracy.
