Indigenous Group Seeking Supreme Court Injunction for Kimba Nuclear Vote

radioactive.pngA local Indigenous Group outside of Kimba is seeking a Supreme Court injunction to halt the impending Kimba vote on the location of the nuclear waste facility.

The Barngala Determination Aboriginal Corporation applied for an urgent Supreme Court Injunction on Tuesday.

The group will argue that native title-holders living outside the Kimba District boundaries should be allowed to vote.

They will allege the ballot breaches the Racial Discrimination Act and that the Kimba Council does not have the power to conduct the vote.

The ballots are to help the Federal Government determine the preferred site for the national radioactive waste storage facility.
