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.

Think how you would feel if dangerous radioactive waste was dumped at your. Community, without your free, prior informed consent? Political expediency is completely unacceptable.

Keep and manage nuclear waste at the point of generation, not dumped on the lands of traditional owners against their will.

This is a very critical issue for all Australians as all Australians and all of our environment, as well as far beyond our borders can be adversely affected by the nuclear waste site in just one area. The tiny particles of radioactive waste travels long distances and even the smallest micro particles can have extreme effects which only increase over time. Secure nuclear waste properly and with transparency for all Australians to see that they are being heard and considered.

We lived through the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 in Germany experiencing radioactive rain. One reason to come to Australia was to give our children a enter and safer future in a land without nuclear power plants and all the associated problems including storage. Please don’t be so short-sighted, leave nuclear power alone and focus on renewable energy.

We left Kimba and moved to Pt Lincoln in Dec. because this whole debacle. It has divided and ruined our once harmonious town, with the threat of a Nuclear waste dump. The dump needs to be away from populated farming areas.

The people of SA do not want a nuclear waste dump. The was declared by the poeople years ago.
