March 11 marks five years since the start of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in the Tohoku region of Japan. Reactors fuelled with uranium from Australia melted down after damage from the earthquake and tsunami, resulting in the displacement of more than 160 000 people.
It is also the closing date for submissions to the federal government on the proposal for a national radioactive waste facility at one of six sites including Hill End, located on Wiradjuri Country in the Central West of NSW.
Uranium Free NSW is hosting this forum to share updates on the Hill End proposal and Fukushima disaster as well as other nuclear industry activities across the state and country.
Nuclear advocates attempt to promote nuclear power as clean and green and a solution to the climate crisis, yet it is clear that every stage of the nuclear chain contaminates land and affects the health and well being of communities.
It is time to break the nuclear chain.
Come along to commemorate five years since Fukushima and join Uranium Free NSW in calling for a future that is renewable not radioactive.
