On 8 February 2015 SA Premier Jay Weatherill announced a Royal Commission into the nuclear industry and a major community campaign against plans for an international high level radioactive waste dump began.
The No Dump Alliance (NDA) has released a book about this campaign. 'Standing Strong’ covers the key issues championed by Aboriginal and civil society groups opposed to the plan including the lack of Traditional Owner consent, dubious economics, the risks to people and the environment and the impact on future generations.
The book shows how South Australians hit the streets, organised community meetings, got involved online, signed postcards, attended information sessions, door-knocked MP’s and breathed a sigh of relief in June 2017 when the Premier conceded that the plan was “dead” and that his government would not pursue the plan.
Today, South Australia faces the proposal of a national nuclear waste site near Hawker in the Flinders Ranges and at Kimba on the Eyre Peninsula, come and hear about these issues and more.fb event here.Saturday, July 21, 2018 at 06:00 PMThe Gov in Hindmarsh, Australia
On 7th June 2017 the No Dump Alliance welcomed the announcement from Premier Weatherill that he now considers the international high level nuclear waste dump is dead, vowing that Labor will not revisit if after the next state election. This is wonderful for South Australia, however our State still faces the prospect of a Federal low and intermediate radioactive waste dump.
The Federal government wants to build a nuclear waste ‘facility’ in SA. Some of this nuclear waste is a hazard for hundreds of years and some for over ten thousand years.
WE HAVE SAID NO BEFORE AND WE STILL SAY NO.
South Australians said no the last time (1998-2004) the Federal government wanted to build a nuclear waste dump and more recently we said no to the plan to import high-level international nuclear waste.
Please join us at Parliament House to send a clear message to the Federal government that SA is too good to waste.
Come to North Terrace, 11 am, Saturday December 2, 2017.
Please spread the word and come along with your family, friends, organisations and community groups. Together we can build a better, greener future from safer things than nuclear waste!

Leave the Poison Alone
This is a short documentary about the proposed nuclear waste dump in the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, located on traditional aboriginal land. The Adnyamathanha and local communities are expressing their concerns and telling us why this should not be imposed on them. It was filmed by some french tourists who were in the area and horrified to learn what was proposed so took it upon themselves to make this great film.

Together we have ended plans for a high-level international radioactive waste dump in our state but the federal government is still pushing for a national waste dump site in SA.
We have faced this challenge before. Now we need to learn from the past, act in the present and build a cleaner future.
Join us for courageous and inspiring stories of and from people on the frontline, learn the history of community resistance and how together we can keep our state free from nuclear waste.
Local and interstate speakers will include:
Nina Brown, Irati Wanti Campaign
Kylie Sambo, Muckaty Campaign
Karina Lester, Yankunytjatjara
The McKenzie sisters, Adnyamathanha
Also on show will be some new and historical footage, highlights from the Talking Straight Out exhibition, and useful info to help us win this current fight.
Afterwards, enjoy a free BBQ and some music. Stay tuned for more on this.
