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.

Radioactive waste disposal should be sent into deep space, feasible with developments in space rocket private providers when they are able to provide a track record of reliability for delivery of defined payloads into space.

Medium to high level radioactive waste should not be stored in South Australia. Why does the $ sign always win out with people instead of care for our environment and the future of mother earth and our descendants?

Aboriginal people, traditionally based all their decisions on the health, well being and survival of their descendants, 7 Generations in the future. This poison has the ability to wipe us and others out in 1 Generation. My Ancestors, Descendants, Barngarla family and other families both black and white say NO! No to nuclear waste sites anywhere in Australia. LEAVE IT IN THE GROUND!!!! The earth protects us and will continue to do so as long as we protect Mother Earth 🌏

Please locate this extremely safe radioactive waste dump in the ACT where the federal government authorities can keep a close eye on this facility.

Having visited the proposed location near Hawker it appears sites were chosen without consideration of long term suitability. Paul Harris

Particularly worried about potential liquid ILW from ANSTO’s lucrative 400% increase in isotope production for overseas markets being indefinitly stored at Kimba. Information not disclosed before voting.

I am totally opposed to the proposed nuclear waste storage site being built at Kimba. If the local people do not want it, why should it be built there? Would it not be more appropriate to set up a renewable energy project there instead?
I’m quite tired of politicians who have no understanding of science, the environment and social justice making ill informed decisions that are impacting quite negatively on the rest of us.

Thank you for organising this, it is time we respected our first people. They did not destroy the land as way we are currently doing. This current plan lacks vision and common sense.
