Right now there is a plan to ship up to one-third of the world’s high-level radioactive waste and bury it in South Australia.

This plan would impact Australians for the next 300,000 years.

It would enable aging nuclear reactors around the world – now under pressure to close because of their intractable waste problems – to stay open for another decade – more risk and more waste.

Let’s tell South Australian Premier Weatherill not to open Australia’s door to the world’s dirty and dangerous radioactive waste. We should not prop up this declining industry for a few more years and impose its waste on generations of our children to come.

Muckaty Tradiditonal Owners fought against a plan to dump waste on their country.

Muckaty Traditional Owners united against a plan to dump radioactive waste on their country, and won.

There’s an organised campaign for an international waste dump in Australia, an expensive “consultation” and social media campaign which presents the plan as if it’s a done deal. We need to counter this push.

The future for Australia – and the world’s – energy needs is renewable, not radioactive. Energy from the sun, wind, and waves is abundant and will never run out. It doesn’t pollute the air we breathe or the water we drink. Nuclear energy is dirty, dangerous, expensive and belongs in the past.

After seven decades of commercial nuclear power operations, not one nation has a final disposal site for high level waste and the sector is strewn with failed projects, timeline delays and massive cost overruns.

The global nuclear power sector is dying out due to public opposition, extreme costs and the rise of renewable energy.

Nuclear waste is like zombie waste – it remains undead.

Will you sign our petition to send a strong message so Premier Weatherill knows Australians don’t support South Australia storing radioactive waste from all around the world?

Together, we can ensure that South Australia’s future is bright, not glowing.

How about they store this waste at all the places that are still radioactive, after all the areas they have contaminated I’m sure there is enough room and since no one can live in them areas for 1000s of years to come. that would be the perfect place. say NO to Nuclear any shape or form. again stupid greedy humans never learn. alien warning message live on tv in uk 1977 on youtube or check Wikipedia, Southern Television broadcast interruption

No Australia did enough with the nuclear testing that was done in our country. They want, they should be responsible for the mess

Not now. Not ever. I will not sit back and let 3rd party people contaminate and destroy the little chance this country has at being a future home for our great, great, grandchildren.

We have enough of our own trash to worry about. Let alone everyone else’s radioactive, mellenia to decompose, trash.
