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.

We need to step into the 21st century and not move nuclear waste. It’s a disaster waiting to happen

Transporting radioactive waste, to dump it in someone else’s backyard? What could possibly go wrong?! Why create yet-another no-go-zone in our rapidly-contaminated world?

The precautionary principle ought prevail, and exposure to a limited field should be applied. Leave insitu, ensure highest safety standards applied on site and monitor regularly.

Please do not track radioactive waste through the streets of Sydney! Please also respect the rights of the people in the Flinders Ranges. We have visited the Flinders Ranges and they are quite unique! It would be devastating to have them house radioactive waste!
With kind regards,
