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.

It’s so self-evident nobody wants this stuff in their country, only the poor, the desperate and the deluded take it for money. Please don’t do this to Australia. Something always goes wrong. Something will go wrong with “safe” storage. Please re-consider.

There is no good reason to accept the worlds waste in South Australia. They say it will be safe but how can they prove that. The possbility of leakages occurring close to the underground water table really concern me. Each country should be responsible to the storage of their own waste. Why should we take the chance of contamination in our state. It seems we are thought to be expendable .

Everyone talks about the money that might be made but the radioactive problem will be here in our state for 10,000+ years. No, no way. We don’t need this permanent headache. We need renewable energy.

We don’t want it here. We shouldn’t be digging the Uranium up and we shouldn’t have to store everyone else’s radioactive waste materials. We have the most beautiful country, let’s try to keep it that way for our future generations.

Dear Jay Weatherill, watch the doco Containment to the end to see all the dangers of storing nuclear waste, especially all together in one place, thanks.
