Important: Talk to your MP about nuclear waste dumps

One of the most important things you can do to prevent nuclear waste dumps in SA is to talk to your MP. MPs are saying their constituents are not contacting them opposing the dump proposals and silence is either seen as consent, or that its not a big issue for constituents.

You don’t need to be an expert, just talk to your MP about your own perspective and speak from the heart. Its a good idea to ask them for their position and opinion and which way they would vote. Its particularly important to speak up about the international dump during October and November.

State MPs

Talk to them about your opposition to SA becoming the world’s nuclear waste dump. Let them know your environmental concerns, worker and public safety concerns, future generations, lack of respect for Traditional Owners and transport and terrorism risks. Tell them you want to keep the legislation that currently bans nuclear waste dumps.
More information here and here.

To find your State MP look up your suburb to find your electorate here then find which MP represents your electorate here.

Federal MPs

Talk to them about the federal government’s plan to put a waste dump at Wallerbedina, near Barndioota, near Hawker in the Flinders Ranges.
Talk to them about the need to keep federal legislation that bans the establishment of nuclear waste dumps in Australia. Ask them how they would vote if a bill to change the legislation was introduced.
If your MP is Labor, ask them to keep strong to the Labor platform of banning nuclear waste dumps and ask them how they would vote if a proposal to overturn the ban were introduced.

Nuclear exhibition at Tandanya

Nuclear Exhibition

Saturday 17 September to Saturday 12 November 2016

Exposing the legacies of the atomic age through creative arts.

Involving more than 50 creative artists – photographers, filmmakers, digital artists, painters, sculptors and writers – this showcase presents the stories of atomic survivors, those Indigenous communities, service personnel and civilian workers who have been directly affected by atomic testing. It presents discoveries about the nuclear age, and fits within a long tradition of artists and communities responding to ‘the bomb’.

A centrepiece is ‘Ngurini’ (Searching), an immersive digital projection made with members of the Yalata Anangu community. Another is ’10 Minutes to Midnight’ also for immersive screening in our large cylindrical arena, and developed with nuclear veterans and the Balaklava community.

These digital art works are accompanied by exhibitions of photography and sculpture, feature seminars, film screenings, and storyteller sessions by Australian and international artists.

WHERE: Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute
Kaurna Country, 253 Grenfell Street, Adelaide
