Nuclear Free South Australia

Nuclear Free South Australia

Momentum is building behind radioactive waste plans for South Australia. The recent state royal commission is urging SA to host up to one-third of the world’s high-level radioactive waste.

Momentum is building behind radioactive waste plans for South Australia. The recent state royal commission is urging SA to host up to one-third of the world’s high-level radioactive waste. 

The global plan would impact all Australians for the next 300,000 years. It would require the active support of the federal government – but there is no bipartisan political support.

At its national conference in July last year federal Labor committed to: “Remain strongly opposed to the importation and storage of nuclear waste that is sourced from overseas in Australia.”

This is good, but there’s an organised campaign for an international waste dump in SA, and an expensive “consultation” and social media campaign which presents the plan as if it’s a done deal. Against this push it is important to help make sure federal Labor stays strong. 

Will you send a quick message to Bill Shorten urging him to promote Labor’s clear position against importing and dumping international radioactive waste?

Raise your voice to make sure federal Labor remains opposed to hosting the world’s nuclear waste.

Decision makers take more notice when you write a personal message and subject line. 

Here are some tips to start your message:

  • Write a clear subject line that describes what your email is about.
  • Make sure to state your name and where you live.
  • Keep your message short and punchy – why should Shorten own, defend and articulate Labor’s clear position against importing and dumping international radioactive waste?
  • Be polite – it’s always best to get the message across in a friendly way.
