 15 October – NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION against nuclear waste dumps in SASaturday October 15, 2016 marks 63 years since the first atomic bomb test at Emu Junction in South Australia.

South Australia faces the threat of becoming a nuclear waste dumping ground, again.

On October 15 we invite everyone, everywhere to take a stand and take part in this National day of Action for South Australia.The Federal Government is pursuing plans to build a national waste dump in the Flinders Ranges while a proposal for South Australia to take the worlds international high level nuclear waste continues to be progressed by the SA state government. Traditional Owners have said ‘NO’ and communities across the state are saying ‘we can do better than to take the worlds worst waste’.

Whether you organise a community event, morning tea, march, paint a banner, stage a photo shoot, host a concert, online action – do what you can and join the movement against the nuclear waste dumping in South Australia.

Western Australians! Write a Letter to your Labor Member…. 
Now more than ever Labor’s position on uranium is important in the campaign to stop uranium mining. There has been some good strong public statements from Labor over the years about their position against uranium mining, a position that is not only environmentally responsible but is also economically sound given the very low uranium price. They are under constant pressure to change their position – a letter from you saying that you are anti uranium mining and asking them to tell you their position on uranium will help. Please write and send a letter to your local WA Labor members electorate address.

  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.”

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.
