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.

We don’t even use nuclear energy in Australia, don’t turn this country into a radio active toxic waste dump, and expect us to be taxed for it!

I do NOT support any government that would propose storing the world’s toxic/hazzardous nuclear radioactive waste in South Australia that presents a HIGH RISK to our environment (agricultural land/soil/water/drinking water/rivers/underground aquifers, etc) and is a HIGH RISK to human health, to animal health (including all native animals) and would contaminate agriculture/food production safety and quality in Australia and would cause economic loss to Australia’s primary production/food export markets internationally and it would also cause long-term economic detriment to the Australian economy especially within the tourism industry in Australia.

I do NOT want future generations in Australia to live in a toxic/hazzardous nuclear radioactive waste dump, due to criminal politicians self-interests to destroy Australia’s economic future by turning the economy into a nuclear waste dump for the world with NO future, except being a toxic/hazzardous nuclear waste dump for the world.

Any corrupt/negligent politician that proposes such a negligent proposal to turn Australia into a radioactive waste dump for the world would have to be clinically demented !!! And they should be sacked immediately, without fail.

Any corrupt/negligent politician that supports a nuclear waste dump is a shameful National Disgrace !!!

We are responsible for The Great Artesian Basin ; one of the largest underground fresh-water reservoirs in the world. It underlies approximately 22% of Australia – occupying an area of over 1.7 million square kilometres beneath the arid and semi-arid parts of Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and the Northern Territory. We do not want to bury radioactive waste in the earth of our home Australia our any Earth,Leave it in the ground.

Stop this we do not want a nuclear weapons in our country.seriously government where is the brains??

Crazy idea! The nuclear industry cannot deal with DANGEROUS waste.
Australia is not a waste dump. All nuclear power stations should be closed down, because there is no way to deal with the waste.
