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.

Please listen to First Nations’ voices about this. It would be a good follow-up to the Referendum for a Voice to Parliament.

radioactive waste is harmful to all life for 100,000’s of years and the cost maintaining storage of waste will cost generations money.

The gravity of malfeasance by our government and the corporations pushing this is devastating. Thank you to those who are standing in the gap and fighting to keep not only Australia as clean as possible but also protecting Aboriginal lands from the detrimental loopholes in government policy that allow a proposition like this to even draw breath.

Keep anything nuclear related out of our ba j yards. Why would you want that toxic rubbish buried in Australian soul. SHAME ON YOU !!!! Profits before people. Who cares what happens to future generations. Who cares in we had nuclear energy and had another Chernobyl disaster. Who cares ? The public do, but clearly the government don’t if they are contemplating introducing nuclear energy in Australia.
Sam 2021-03-28 14:16:56 +1100
Australians and I don’t want radioactive waste in our country, the only safe place is under a politicians bed and they can directly deal with the consequences!
I’m only joking, there is no safe place for radioactive waste, No, I don’t want it in our land to pollute our air, water, land or our health.
Help us to keep Australia safe from radioactive waste, help us to be a clean country not a glowing one!

you are so stupid. Nuclear energy is safe and clean. Jump off a cliff.

Disgusting we are not a dumping ground – if other countries use nuclear power they should be responsible for their waste.
Kirsten 2019-12-13 12:47:55 +1100
Its very obvious that the government do not care about the future of Australia or the damage that they will do to this earth which is our home the ONLY home and planet we have. The government need to stop acting like children its obvious that they only care about them selves and the money they are making. Go renewable not nuclear.

Please do no do this. It’s insanity. Stop the production of nuclear wast instead, there are green, earth care solutions.
