Ban to continue on Uranium Mining in NSW
Posted by Byron Movement on 2012-04-23 12:12:45.0

It wasn’t a good week for uranium stocks, as Minister for North Coast, Don Page, confirmed that the NSW Government would continue the ban on uranium exploration and mining in NSW. This is despite a federal government request to lift the ban. Also keeping up the awareness of the continuing Japanese nuclear meltdown were several hundred people, who rallied in Byron Bay’s Railway Park against the industry. The colourful day included musical performances and family activities. MC Harsha Prabhu pointed to the similarities between Wall Street and Fukushima, who he says are both symbols of ‘rogue’ capitalism. ‘Delusional speculation, technological hubris, public subsidies and private greed – the fate of the planet hinges on who will win the war: the corporations or the people,’ Mr Prabhu told an enraptured crowd.
