Nuclear Free

Nuclear Free

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.

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.

In your email:

  • Be sure to thank Premier Berejiklian and her cabinet for rejecting Mark Latham’s dirty energy push. Then call on them to step up once more and reject this second push from Deputy Premier John Barilaro.
  • Ask Cabinet to keep NSW nuclear-free, and instead focus on real climate solutions like clean energy from the sun and wind to power the state, and export to the world.
  • Remind Cabinet that Nuclear power is dirty and dangerous, and would also guzzle up and degrade large volumes of water in this drought-stricken country.
