Dan van Holst Pellekaan MP  on plan to store radioactive trash in rural South Australia

Heather Mckenzie Stuart shared a post.Fight To Stop Nuclear Waste Dump In Flinders Ranges SA, Conversation Starter  11 Sept 18, 

Dan van Holst Pellekaan MP  Proposed storage of domestic radioactive waste:I’ve always said that I will strongly support a community which does not want to host a waste site (and similarly if it is wanted), and that has never changed.

The Kimba and Hawker districts are the ones being proposed by the federal government and its is vital to get a reliable assessment of those local communities’ opinions. The efforts of the Barngarla people to have the opinions of traditional owners who do not live in the district included are understandable, and this also gives everyone a bit of time while the court considers that request. The federal government has said that it will still undertake a vote, but after the court confirms who should be allowed to vote.

And once that has been done, we’ll all know the results and we can halt or progress the process together.
