The Federal Government has selected South Australia for their national nuclear waste dump - targetting Barndioota in the Flinders Ranges and Kimba on the Eyre Peninsula.
This is on top of the South Australian Nuclear Royal Commission having recently promoted South Australia as the World's high level radioactive waste dumping ground.
Constructing a nuclear waste dump in SA is currently illegal and the Greens want it to stay this way.
Radioactive waste is not only dangerous for hundreds of thousands of years, but its storage can never be 100% foolproof.
Exposure to radiation can cause serious health problems - including cancer, cardiovascular disease, emphysema and cataracts - and if it enters the soil can contaminate our food and water.
The South Australian Government must enforce our laws and stop nuclear waste being dumped in SA.

We residents of South Australia, call on the Marshall Liberal Government to enforce the Nuclear Waste Storage Facility (Prohibition) Act 2000, to prevent a nuclear waste dump in South Australia.
