The Flinders Local Action Group (FLAG) and the Conservation Council of South Australia would like to invite you to attend one or both public meetings we are holding in Hawker and Port Augusta.
The meetings will discuss the proposed Radioactive Waste Management Facility at Barndioota, near Hawker, looking at the issues surrounding nuclear medicine and the history of nuclear waste management in Australia.
In 2016 a community survey undertaken by FLAG showed that a majority of local residents oppose the federal government’s proposal to build a national nuclear waste dump at Barndioota.
A nuclear waste dump in the Flinders Ranges presents a wide range of risks and many unknowns.
- Dr Margaret Beavis is a Melbourne GP and President of the Medical Association for Prevention of War. She teaches medicine and public health at Melbourne University.
- Dave Sweeney from the Australian Conservation Foundation and was on the national nuclear waste Independent Advisory Panel.
There will also be speakers from the FLAG group.
