1998 in Salzburg
At the beginning of 1997, a fight against uranium mining began in Kakadu National Park: First, Yvonne Margarula managed to get the lease for the Jabiluka mining site annulled by the Federal Court of Justice. She then requested that Kakadu be declared a world heritage site by UNESCO. Finally, she allied herself with the Greens and students.
