Australian anti nuclear activists meet in Alice Springs

Waste dump to top agenda at anti-nuclear forum By Ruby Jones and Allyson Horn Oct 5, 2012   More than 100 anti-nuclear activists from around the country are gathering in Alice Springs for the annual conference of the Australian Nuclear Free Alliance.

Nat Wasley from the Alliance says one of the big issues that will be discussed is the proposed nuclear dump at Muckaty Station near Tennant Creek. She says the Alliance will use the conference to devise its action plan for the next year.

“We know that the uranium industry is toxic at every stage of the nuclear chain from uranium exploration to nuclear waste, nuclear reactors and of course nuclear weapons as well,” she said.

“So it’s a chance for us to meet face-to-face, plan what we’re going to do for the year ahead and then put those plans into action.

“This annual gathering is really important for people to … share their experiences and what happens when the company comes out to speak to traditional owners and also strategise how to work across the many thousands of kilometres that people live to come together and stand united against this industry.”
