Our government is considering unlocking radioactive waste from secure storage at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation's purpose-built facility where it was made.

From there it would be trucked through many of our communities to be dumped in the town of Kimba in regional South Australia, without any long-term plan.

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.

This dangerous waste cannot be trucked through and left in our communities without a long-term plan. It makes no sense.

It makes no sense to move this waste without a long-term plan. 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 Keith Pitt to keep the radioactive waste sealed away and out of our communities:

As people from all across Australia, we call on the federal government and Keith Pitt to keep the radioactive waste securely stored at Australia's Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation purpose-built facility and out of our communities, including Kimba, South Australia.

The waste cannot be trucked through our communities until a credible long-term solution is found.

All for some development profit on the original waste site? Not legitimate, not reasonable.

Please keep the nuclear waste sealed a at. We do not support this waste being moved and stored in South Australia. There are too many risks. Please keep our communities and natural environments safe and clean.
