Nick Pastalatzis questions the government’s boast about jobs at the planned nuclear waste dump

Nick Pastalatzis : Submission to Senate Committee Inquiry into National Radioactive Management Amendment Bill 2020. Submission no. 64   [ this is a summary of the hand-written submission]The Amendment specifies a particular location – Napandee for a repository for long lived Intermediate wastes, The Amendmet and the existing Act, both are flawed and should be rejected.  Shamefully the Federal Government excluded the Barngarla people from the ballot about the site. The Barngarla’s own ballot resulted in 100% opposition to the plan.  The process and decision are inconsistent with the UN Declaration of Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

Imposing  a nuclear waste dump will further exacerbate the racial discrimination identified by the Anti Discrimination Committee.
The Senate Committee should seek expert advice on the government’s claim  about job creation at the facility. Overseas experience shows that there would be far fewer jobs.
