Saturday 3 November: Adelaide. Rally – Don’t Dump on South Australlia

Don’t Dump on SA Rally on Kaurna Land at Parliament House, North Terrace, Adelaide at 11.30am on Saturday 3rd November.

Mara for Don’t Dump on SA

Last week we found out that the Barngarla Injunction hearing will go back to court on 30 January 2019. Here is a link to a statement from DIIS (the Department of Industry Innovation and Science). Yesterday there was an article in The Advertiser saying that the Minister’s decision may be delayed until next year.

With the ballot on hold, this rally is more important than ever. We need to come together and say NO to a radioactive waste dump in SA and ensure that the government ends this terrible site selection process.
We want the government to take all three sites in SA off the table and to hold an full independent inquiry into the best way to manage our most dangerous waste. They must stop targeting remote and regional areas and give Aboriginal people a right of veto for proposals that threaten their country and culture.
We want a huge presence at the rally to show Minister Canavan that he does NOT have broad community support for a waste dump in SA and that he can’t impose one on this unwilling community.
Please join us to show We Still Say No to Radioactive Waste in SA!
The rally will also voice opposition to another threat to Adnyamathanha country –  Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) at Leigh Creek.
The facebook event is here: Please share and promote widely!
In the meantime, please send in submissions to DIIS opposing the dump, encourage everyone you know to do the same and please promote the rally.
We have a great lineup of speakers and performers. Please come along on 3rd November to show We Still Say NO to radioactive waste in SA!
