“Mikur balkimbikarnyi yargi – don’t destroy our land.”
Protecting the Gulf Country provides regular updates, news and information and campaign resources highlighting resistance to invasive mining in the Gulf of Carpentaria in Australia’s Northern Territory.
Our key focus is the environmental, cultural and economic impacts of Glencore’s contested McArthur River Mine. Attention is also given to the significant risks posed by abandoned legacy mines and the cumulative impacts of imposed and reckless mining on the Gulf region’s people and environment.
It is managed by Lauren Mellor of the Environment Centre NT. Comments are my own and do not necessarily reflect the position of the Environment Centre.
