Stop the expansion of Olympic Dam uranium mine sign now

We, the undersigned, ask the Australian Government and Environment Minister the Honourable Tony Burke to halt the expansion of the Olympic Dam uranium mine in South Australia.

We hold that the risks to human health, safety, the environment and future generations are too great. The mine will add to the already massive radioactive and toxic tailings and waste, inject acid and toxic chemicals into the water table thereby risking our water supply and endangering the mound springs held sacred by the local Arabunna and Barngala peoples. The destination of the uranium mined is in no way assured. We cannot guarantee that Australian uranium will not end up in nuclear weapons.

Indeed the only guarantee we can have is that this mine and it's products will generate intractable, dangerous radioactive waste which there is no safe method of storage.

The small profit to be made by a private corporation by mining this uranium does not outweigh the risk to the public good.

    There is no economic argument favourable to nuclear power anywhere on Earth. Uranium mining for nuclear power is a fallacial industry existing to manufacture nuclear weapons. Any official advocating or sanctioning uranium mining is a supporter of nuclear
