Gotta be great value for money and all proceeds go to a good cause!
The Federal Government wants to establish a national radioactive waste dump and above-ground store in the Flinders Ranges. No other site is being considered although the government has invited further nominations from land-holders around Australia.
The site in the Flinders Ranges is strongly opposed by Adnyamathanha Traditional Owners, and they were not consulted about the nomination of the site. Even Traditional Owners who live next to the proposed dump site at Yappala Station were not consulted.
The proposed dump site is adjacent to the Yappala Indigenous Protected Area. Traditional Owners have
been working for many years to register heritage sites in the area with the SA government. The proposed dump site has countless thousands of Aboriginal artefacts. The nominated site is a significant women’s site. Throughout the area are registered cultural heritage sites and places of huge importance to Adnyamathanha people.
The proposed nuclear waste dump site is subject to massive floods, the last one on 20 January 2006. The 2006 flood uprooted huge trees, and an earlier flood destroyed an entire township.
A nuclear waste dump in the Flinders Ranges is not a done deal, it can be stopped just as community opposition forced the Howard Government to abandon plans for a dump near Woomera in 2004 and the Abbott Government abandoned plans for a dump in the NT in 2014.
