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.

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

Australia will nit be a dumping ground for the World’s radioactive waste. Not now or ever!

Dear Premier Weatherill,

There are so many other issues you should attend to! Do not do this short term, limited and very dangerous act. There is no safe way to transport this waste and there is no safe way to store it. Please focus on other issues eg. soil depletion, infrastructure, education and renewables.

The health of the environment and future generations, for many hundreds and thousands of years is threatened and sold out. The damage is irreversible. No amount of money in the world could compensate for such a mistake.

There is no such thing as acceptably safe storage. If there are problem in the future my bet is that all cleanup cost will fall to Australia. On one hand we donT accept refugees on the very slimmest risk that one may be a terrorist but here we are willing to accept material that poses a real, high potential, risk to the environment and human health
I’d say don’t do it.

Nuclear Waste takes thousands of years to break down to safe levels. There is No safe way to store it underground, as it will permeate any containment and totally contaminate South Australian​ soils and create Toxic environments. Please do not use Australia as a dumping ground for the world’s problematic issues!

Take Fukushima radiation as a serious example.

What will your/our future generations say when they look back? Will they be proud? When the potential danger is catastrophic and irreversible, why take the risk? Be proud, be brave, be leaders – say no and invest in positive change, new ways, new jobs, clean renewable energy.
