Founded in 1975, and currently published three times a year, Chain Reaction is the national magazine of Friends of the Earth Australia. The August 2016 edition will soon be mailed to members and subscribers. It has a feature on environmental racism, updates on the renewable energy revolution, a strong focus on the nuclear industry in Australia and heaps of book reviews.
The Australian Nuclear Free Alliance (ANFA) is appalled by the Senate vote (Thursday 19 March) not to repeal the Commonwealth radioactive Waste Management Act -2005 (CRWMA). Labor Senators voted not to repeal this act, despite it being one of their firm election promises. Only the Greens voted to repeal it, on a day in the senate where such things as Alcopops Tax and Workchoices were more prominent and nuke waste dumps almost slipped totally under the radar.
