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.

Nuclear energy should be avoided at all costs. There have been too many devastating nuclear accidents in the world already. Leave it in the ground and lets focus on an innovative clean and safe energy future.

they dont even have facilities to store this stuff, they are going to hope the value doesn’t drop once they begin..which it will… to fund building the facility. mark my words we will end up paying to keep this stuff. also makes us a target for dirty bomb source material and they will be shipping or flying this stuff over our homes.

Australia is the best place in the world to exploit
solar energy , and research into the radiation spectrum for a host of reasons.

The Premier has been told by the South Australian public repeatedly that we don’t want this in our backyard. Mr Weatherill and his government are incompetent and incapable of running a nuclear waste dump and if they want to proceed with this it will be the last ever action of his Government. Proceed at your peril Premier!

We need to urgently protect our environment from further degradation and blatantly erronious Govt. decisions that jeopardise Australia’s future and the well being of all future generations.

Oh please I do hope not…citizens jury said NO but Jay wants yes and what Jay wants Jay gets…fuck me…he can’t run our education, DSCI and now aged care…so how the fuck can he run a radioactive dump…we need to dump Jay in one of his barrels of waste…anyway if it’s such a “great” idea then why hasn’t somewhere else in the world done it….WHY??? coz it’s such a big risk that’s why :(

We are worried about North Korea having nuclear weapons yet you are willing to consider a nuclear waste dump to prop up this industry! It is damaging to people, the environment and animals. It will not overcome climate change – renewables are the answer. We need to work on creating a 100% renewable future that will not poison the earth and its inhabitants.

This is just deplorable. No, no, no…. The countries that create it, should store it. No amount of money (and that’s another debatable subject) would compensate for a breach of health, safety and security.

I’m totally against Australia storing and burying the world’s radioactive waste, nothing good can come of it. Let’s create a cleaner brighter future for the next generations and for our mother earth
