On Friday, Kick Nuclear and London Mining Network took part in two demonstrations in central London - at the Australian High Commission and at the UK headquarters of mining giant BHP Billiton - to show solidarity with The Lizard's Revenge protest festival taking place this weekend in the South Australian desert. The protests, in solidarity with local aboriginal communities, are in opposition to BHP Billiton's planned expansion of the Olympic Dam uranium (plus copper, gold and silver) mine at Roxby Downs, which was recently approved by the Australian Federal Government and the South Australian State Government, and would make it the largest such mine in the world.
