'In February 1998 the Federal Government announced its plan to build a national radioactive waste dump in the South Australian desert. In March a council of senior Aboriginal women from Coober Pedy, the Kupa Piti Tjuta, made an announcement of their own.
"We say no radioactive wast dump on our ngura-in our country."
For six years the women travelled the country, talking straight out. They called their campaign Irati Wanti-the poison, leave it.
They explained, they demanded, they marched and sang. They told of extraordinary personal histories. They worked with greenies and wrote passionate letters to politicians.
Now they want to share their stories with you.' (Source: Back Cover)
