Nuclear waste dump opposed by Aboriginals, and will stigmatise the whole State of South Australia

Dump opposition, Adelaide Advertiser, JILLIAN MARSH, 25 July 18 

AS AN Adnyamathanha person I confirm that the overwhelming majority of Adnyamathanha do not support the proposed nuclear waste dump.

Our Native Title body reflects this position. We have clearly stated our opposition from the very beginning of this imposed government and industry process. Our rights to say no must be respected on cultural grounds, as well as on environmental and economic grounds.

All the evidence we have provided to date supports this. We ask that government and industry do the right thing and back off, leave us alone, listen to what we have to say, hear what we have to say.

Nuclear stigma R. WOOD, Valley View

THE majority of South Australians do not want a nuclear waste dump built at Kimba or near Hawker to house Australia’s nuclear waste according to a recent poll (The Advertiser, 24/7/18). It is the whole of SA who will bear the stigma of being the national nuclear waste state, just as we are successfully benefiting from our clean, green agriculture, food and tourism industries.
