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.

Totally foolhardy to transport radioactive waste.

leave radio active waste where it is. Moving it creates more problems than leaving it. Removing it just another radio active waste dump. We do not need more potential problems in another place.

Why are we still dumping toxic waste into our into out back Australia thousands of kilometres away from where it is currently stored?

Does it mean that it isn’t safe and the further away it is from the site the better it is because no one will know when there is a problem?
