 September 8 – Adelaide – Symposium on South Australia’s nuclear history

10.00 – 16. 00

Allan Scott Auditorium City West Campus
55 North Tce. Adelaide

A one-day symposium will shed light on South Australia’s nuclear history and related environmental and social effects: ranging from the British atomic tests at Maralinga in the 1950s and 1960s, to the effects of uranium mining and recent proposals to store nuclear waste in South Australia near Hawker and Kimba.
The symposium will explore how artists have reflected on nuclear issues through their practice and give voice to communities affected.
Nuclear campaigners and community members will present an update on current developments in regard to the proposed waste dumps in SA and illustrate the current campaigns against these.
Among the speakers are: Jessie Boylan (artist), Merilyn Fairskye (artist), Paul Brown (producer), David Noonan (anti-nuclear campaigner), Mara Bonacci (Conservation Council SA), Jim Green (Friends of the Earth), Karina Lester (anti-nuclear campaigner), Tilman Ruff (Nobel Peace Prize laureate), and community representatives from Kimba and Hawker.

PETITION Please sign and share our new petition!  – Conservation Council of South Australia
Minister Canavan recently announced that an AEC vote for Kimba and Flinders Ranges on the waste dump would begin on August 20th.  This announcement came in the midst of a Senate Inquiry into the site selection process and the vote is planned for just after the Senate report is due. There many community voices expressed in the submissions that you can read online here.
Communities in Kimba and Hawker are being asked to go to the vote on whether to advance the process to establish a nuclear waste dump.
As Minister Canavan hears from the communities on this issue, we want him to hear from you too. We have started a postcard petition that we will deliver to him later this year. Please go online to sign the online postcard or pick up a bundle to distribute from The Joinery, 111 Franklin Street, Adelaide.


PETITION No Nuclear Waste Dump for South Australia


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,


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

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