Australian news, and some related international items

It is not too late to tell the Australian govt “NO” to South Australia nuclear waste dump

If you use the ACE template, please change at least some of the words and the heading, as the government counts multiple copies of the same email as a single submission.

Submissions close Thursday 26 March

The National Radioactive Waste Management Amendment Bill amends the National Radioactive Waste Management Act to specifically target South Australia for a national nuclear waste ‘facility’ ‒ a repository for low-level waste and an above-ground ‘interim’ store for long-lived intermediate-level waste including nuclear reactor fuel waste.

The Bill is deeply flawed and should be rejected. Among other problems, the Bill and the existing Act systematically disempower and dispossess Barngarla Traditional Owners who are unanimous in their opposition to the proposed nuclear waste facility.

 You can make a submission on or before Thursday March 26 to the Senate Economics Legislation Committee which is holding an inquiry to the Bill.

The easiest and quickest way to make a submission is to simply sign our online submission, adding any comments you like.  – Friends of the Earth
