There’s still time to make a submission opposing the nuclear waste dump!

Friendsof the Earth, 30 Mar 20 Please lodge a submission opposing the federal government’s nuclear waste dump plans

Thanks to the 700+ people who have already made a submission! The deadline has now been extended to 9 April 2020. 

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.

Please make a submission on or before 9 April 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.
