This type of waste dump will damage hundreds and thousands of peoples families  but it will hurt the Muckaty people more. It will be dump on their land toxic waste and will effect them in many different ways; polluting the air and the water. The radioactive waves can  travel even 3000 kilometres through heaps and heaps of towns effecting lots of people and their families. The worst thing about it is nobody can see it. People don’t want to lose their lives after they have grown up strong and healthy. They also don’t want to lose their dreams and goals. Many people don’t want this, so please STOP!
