2016 - a big year for nuclear issues in South Australia
The Nuclear Royal Commission continues its investigations and will hand down the final report in May. The Commission is looking into the risks and opportunities of furthering a nuclear industry here in SA including increased uranium mining, uranium enrichment, nuclear power and dumping international nuclear waste.
Three sites in South Australia, two at Kimba and one in the Flinders Rangers have been shortlisted to become a national nuclear waste dump. South Australians have a long history of opposing waste dumps and have state legislation opposing it. We are working hard to have a voice in the debate and represent many South Australians who don't want us to go down the radioactive path.
For more information on both the nuclear Royal Commission and the National Radioactive Waste Management project check out the nuclear page on the Conservation SA website.
South Australia – too good to waste
Join our postcard campaign!
This February, Conservation SA, the Australian Conservation Foundation and Friends of the Earth have launched a postcard campaign calling for a renewable not radioactive South Australia. We are collecting signed postcards to hand to the SA Government when the Nuclear Royal Commission delivers its final report in May 2016. Watch out for postcards around town in the Avant Card displays or drop into the Joinery in Franklin St to grab some.
Can you help us collect signed postcards? If you think you could get 10, 20, 50 or even 100 signed in your community - please give Cat a call on 08 8223 5155 or email firstname.lastname@example.org - we can post them out to you or feel free to pick some up at the Joinery at 111 Franklin St, Adelaide.
In coming days we will have an online function available also so you will be able to invite friends and family online to get involved.
