Our government is considering unlocking radioactive waste from secure storage in southern Sydney.

Why? To put it on a truck and haul it all the way to either the Flinders Ranges or the Eyre Peninsula in regional South Australia. 

Radioactive waste risks our air, soil and water. It damages the genetic and reproductive systems of plants, animals and people. And this waste lasts for up to ten thousand years.

The waste cannot be trucked through our communities. There are too many risks and too many communities that have had no say. 

Double handling this waste means twice the trouble and twice the risk.

Our government has called for input on this decision from “anyone with an interest, no matter where they live."

So let's speak out to protect our communities! 

Sign the open letter now asking Resource Minister Matt Canavan to keep the radioactive waste sealed away and out of communities in New South Wales and South Australia:

As people from all across Australia, we call on the federal government and Matt Canavan to keep the radioactive waste securely stored at Australia's Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation in Lucas Heights, Sydney, and out of communities in New South Wales and South Australia.

The waste cannot be trucked through our communities for dumping until a credible storage solution is found.

There is too great a risk moving radioactive waste. This double handling opens the potential for a mishap and the consequences would be dire for those involved.

I am a bit fed up with the premise that Australia can bury radioactive waste because our land is old and not susceptible to earthquakes. Rubbish. There is plenty of movement in the earth around Adelaide (Many Adelaide homes have quite large cracks in the plaster from earth movement) and earthquakes are known to occur in WA and near Darwin.

considering climate change and heating of the environment and water issues being high on the priorities list of Australians we need to take some caution in storing nuclear waste in pristine environments..Secure storage is absolutely essential.
