Comment: Uranium and Australian Politics


Brian Aarons


In leas than a year the movement against uranium mining has snowballed to become the biggest mass campaign since the Vietnam Moratoriums of 1970-71. It has the potential to grow even larger than that significant movement and will have a similar impact on Australian politics. Its potential effects are very large, due to popular understanding of the gravity of the issues invilved and because the debate touches on many questions fundamental to capitalism and the future course of advanced industrial society.
