Sign the Declaration
Aboriginal Traditional Owners have written a short statement and are asking organisations all around the world to endorse the statement. This is the statement:
Irati Wanti Declaration (‘The Poison – Leave It’)
A group of politicians and business-people are developing a plan to build an international high-level nuclear waste dump in South Australia. The plan is strongly opposed by many South Australians and by an overwhelming majority of Aboriginal people.
The Australian Nuclear Free Alliance, representing Aboriginal people from across Australia, calls on nuclear nations NOT to dump nuclear waste in Australia. The nuclear industry has a track record of Aboriginal dispossession and environmental pollution − from the atomic bomb tests to uranium mining to nuclear waste dump proposals.
We call on nuclear nations NOT to dump nuclear waste in Australia.
Endorsed by Australian Nuclear Free Alliance at its 2015 Annual Gathering on Nukunu Country, South Australia.
