DATE: Saturday December 2,
WHERE: Parliament House Adelaide, Kaurna Land.
RALLY TIME! Join us on the steps of Parliament House to call on politicians to say no to a radioactive waste dump in SA.
FB RSVP: HERE
In its effort to find a site to house Australia’s radioactive waste, the Federal Government’s National Radioactive Waste Management Project (NRWMP) has three sites currently under consideration in South Australia – one at Barndioota in the Flinders Ranges and two in Kimba on the Eyre Peninsula. Some of this nuclear waste is a hazard for hundreds of years and some for thousands of years.
Radioactive Nuclear waste dumps for non-SA wastes are illegal in SA. In response to earlier moves to dump waste in SA, Parliament passed a law to say No: the Nuclear Waste Facility (Prohibition) Act 2000. The objects of this Act are “to protect the health, safety and welfare of the people of South Australia and to protect the environment in which they live by prohibiting the establishment of certain nuclear waste storage facilities in this state.”
We’ve said no to radioactive waste in SA before and won and we’ll do it again!
