***********************************************************************

ARPANSA considering components in radioactive trash dump- asks for your comments. Comments close March 2. This process is about determining the nature of the material to be dumped in the proposed x3 SAust radioactive suppositories.

Currently there is no official determination about what is actually to be accumulated there – hence the delay in remediating the leaking drums @ Woomera & failure to properly inform the local communities.

Also thereby wrongfully expecting them to sign off on an unknown quality/quantity.

ARPANSA is engaging in public consultation on the draft Code for Disposal of Solid Radioactive Waste (Radioactive Waste Disposal Code).

Start/End Date:
Thursday 21 December 2017 – 09:00 to Friday 23 February 2018 – 17:00
ARPANSA invites people and organisations interested in the disposal of solid radioactive waste to tell us their views on this topic. Have Your Say Now –  more https://www.arpansa.gov.au/code-disposal-solid-radioactive-waste-rps-c-3

 Terms of Reference

On 6 February 2018 the following matter was referred to the Economics References Committee for inquiry and report by 14 August 2018:

The appropriateness and thoroughness of the site selection process for a national radioactive waste management facility at Kimba and Hawker in South Australia, noting the Government has stated that it will not impose such a facility on an unwilling community, with particular reference to:

  1. the financial compensation offered to applicants for the acquisition of land under the Nominations of Land Guidelines;
  2. how the need for ‘broad community support’ has played and will continue to play a part in the process, including:
  3.             the definition of ‘broad community support’, and
  4.             how ‘broad community support’ has been or will be determined for each process advancement stage;
  5. how any need for Indigenous support has played and will continue to play a part in the  process, including how Indigenous support has been or will be determined for each process advancement stage;
  6. whether and/or how the Government’s ‘community benefit program’ payments affect broad community and Indigenous community sentiment;
  7. whether wider (Eyre Peninsular or state-wide) community views should be taken into  consideration  and,  if  so,  how  this  is  occurring  or  should  be occurring; and
  8. any other related matters.

PETITION No Nuclear Waste Dump for South Australia  http://sagreens.markparnell.org.au/no_waste_dump_for_sa

 

PETITION Citizens of Australia demand action to enforce South Australian Nuclear Waste Storage Facility (Prohibition) Act 2000 Online Open letter requesting ACTION. Dear Commissioner of Police, http://petition.dyndns.org/index.php

 

the Federal Govt’s proposed dump at Barndioota is still on the agenda, despite the opposition of the Adnyamathanha people, and other local residents. Although the Federal Govt calls this waste “low and intermediate” level, there is doubt that this is accurate by international standards, and what it means in terms of toxicity.

  5. Thanks for spotting the protests on this web space.
    We attended a march/rally listed here…
    handed out various media to alert The Public
    about the scam to make things seem so dire
    while often giving the only “out” as more
    URANIUM MINING and NUCLEAR NIGHTMARE.

    “People who are unable to stand for anything…
    will fall for anything.”

For just the measly $67.50 , you can have brekky with him – a sit-down hot breakfast, layered berry yoghurt muesli shot, seasonal fruit, brewed coffee, T Bar teas and fresh juice. Meanwhile, Kev will tell you how you beaut it will be when South Australia goes full steam ahead with importing radioactive trash and expanding the nuclear fuel chain. See more at Action Australia.
