David Myer : nuclear lobby bullying their way by their effort to change the National Radioactive Waste Management Act

David Myer  to Senate Committee on National Radioactive Waste Management Amendment (Site Specification, Community Fund and Other Measures) Bill 2020 [Provisions] Submission 68 

The proposed waste facility at Kimba is a bad idea.

1. Handling and transport of nuclear waste is seriously hazardous.

2. The native people of the Kimba regoin have not been consulted. This is deeply troubling after years of being
ignored, we finally apologise for our historical appalling treatment of our aborigines, and now here we are
again, pretending they don’t exist, don’t have an opinion and don’t matter. Talk about third class citizens.

3. Removal of common law rights, as proposed in the draft legislation, through the denial of access to judicial
review and exempting environmental and heritage legislation, is tantamount to admitting that “this proposal
won’t stack up so we are bullying our way through.” How dare they exempt the law of the land!
Please do not support the proposed changes to the Act.
