In our September Nuclear Free News update you can read about the lobbying firm paid to push Morrison's nuclear waste dump plan despite community opposition, the SA Premier throwing his support behind traditional owners trying to stop a nuclear waste dump, UN Chief's reaction to nuclear threats and a 'reassurance' of federal government that the AUKUS nuclear submarines will be built in Adelaide.

Environmentalists have called on Germany and the Netherlands to block a shipment of uranium aboard the Russian ship Mikhail Dudin, but the German government said that it can't stop the shipment of Russian uranium destined for French nuclear plants from being processed at a site in Germany because atomic fuel isn't covered by European Union sanctions on Russia.

War, Weapons & Subs
“The idea of nuclear conflict, once unthinkable, has become a subject of debate. This in itself is totally unacceptable,” Guterres said.
Mr Malinauskas said he had spoken to Defence Minister Richard Marles several times over the weekend "both in person and over the phone", who had assured him the federal government remained committed to building nuclear submarines in Adelaide.
