About this event

On this webinar you can hear from local people in Kimba and the Flinders Ranges – including Adnyamathanha and Barngala Traditional Owners. We will hear about local concerns and actions and the need for a more responsible national approach. Will you join us?

What:Webinar – South Australia: too good to waste
When: Wednesday 8 July, 7.30-9pm AEST (7pm SA/NT; 5.30pm WA)
Where: Online on Zoom – RSVP for link to join

Soon our Senate will vote on new laws that would make the South Australian regional town of Kimba Australia’s national dumping and long-term storage site for radioactive waste.

This poorly considered plan is a real threat, but the Australian Conservation Foundation is optimistic we can do better.

Late last year more than 5,000 of us added our voices to an open letter that helped end plans to dump radioactive waste in the Flinders Ranges.
And in April we sent 2,982 emails to the Senate Committee reviewing the laws that would greenlight the Kimba site.

Again and again we are using our collective voice to protect our communities and promote responsibility, and we’re being heard by decision makers.

Check out the speakers you will hear from:

  • Vivianne McKenzie, Adnyamathanha woman: Vivianne is a Traditional Owner of the Flinders Ranges area who was active in the fight against waste in her community.
  • Jason Bilney, Chair of the Barngarla Determination Aboriginal Corporation (BDAC): The Barngarla people are the Native Title holders of the Kimba region and have consistently opposed the federal waste plan.
  • Peter Woolford: Peter is a farmer and grain producer who played a leading role in the local community campaign against the waste facility from day dot.
  • ACF: we’ll discuss why the Kimba plan is flawed and options to better advance responsible radioactive waste management in Australia.

The webinar will conclude with a 30-minute Q & A session, so come prepared with a question.
