Farmers to Canberra, to protest the law that forces a nuclear dump on Kimba’s agriculutral land

We are members of the Kimba community and proud and productive grain farmers who have travelled to Canberra to meet with Labor, Green and cross-bench Senators to put a face to those directly impacted by the proposed legislation to name Kimba as the site for Australia’s radioactive waste dump.

In our view the process the Government has employed to site this facility in Kimba over the last five years has been unfair, manipulative and completely lacking in transparency.

We are extremely concerned that the Governments proposed legislation  currently awaiting Senate consideration intentionally removes our right to contest the decision and denies basic protections .

It is clear that productive farming land in Kimba is not the best, or even the right place for our nations radioactive waste. We urge the federal government to step back and review their selection process rather than continue trying to force this decision through via Parliament.
