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.

this seems like a wasteful enterprise, double handling radioactive waste

To make such a short sighted decision as a nuclear dump is wrong. It us something we must not leave future voting generations to sort out. Not that they’d be able to. Care for the future starts now. Do not support the dump.

No rubbish, of any kind, generated by the wider society should be dumped on Aboriginal land. There is clearly no support among them for this move.

Moving this radioactive waste will expose people to risk and also to pollute an area that I and many others want to visit in safety. Leave it where it is until you have a solution, not just a plan to look like you are dealing with it.

Please leave the radioactive waste at Lucas Heights until a TOTALLY SAFE STORAGE and TRANSPORT means can be found and agreed upon by those nearby who may be effected.

Show more leadership, creative thinking and respect for the people you claim to represent. Putting us, our children and our environment in danger for generations to come would be grossly negligent, incompetent and immoral. Is that really the legacy you want to leave behind?

No nuclear waste dump on Adnyamathanha yarta. It will destroy our cultural heritage sites, Dreaming story lines thus causing cultural genocide upon us.
