Standing Strong Book Launch

Hosted by Mara Bonacci
Come and grab your copy, join community and remember this story....

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.
