FoE are a member group of Nuclear Operations Watch Port Adelaide (NOWPA) who are one of the groups hosting this event.
Come and hear about community and environmental concerns with BHP mining projects in Australia and overseas. From coal mines in Colombia and Indonesia, the infamous Olympic Dam uranium mine in South Australia to uranium exports through Port Adelaide – at this forum the spotlight will be on BHP’s behaviour not their share price. The event leads into the action outside the BHP-Billiton AGM at the Entertainment Centre the next day.
