The ACE Nuclear Free Collective has worked for over forty years researching, educating and actively campaigning on nuclear issues. We aim to protect people and the environment from damage by the nuclear industry and promote safe, clean and sustainable energy solutions.
Join our ACE Nuclear Free Collective for fortnightly meetings on Tuesdays at the Friends of the Earth office, 312 Smith Street Collingwood. To find out when our next meeting is, please contact Jim Green on 0417 318 368 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
NO NUCLEAR WASTE IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA
We have worked for years to protect land and culture from the threat of a nuclear waste dump, supporting remote communities in South Australia and the Northern Territories in their fights. The government's current plan is targeting three sites in South Australia - one on Adnyamathanha country in the Flinders Ranges near Hawker and two on Barngarla country on the Eyre Peninsula near the farming community of Kimba.
Our campaign work at this time is vital. We are supporting traditional owners and community members speaking out against the proposals and calling on the Federal government to stop trying to impose the dump on unwilling communities. Instead, they need to undertake an independent inquiry into Australia's nuclear waste to find the best options for managing it and stop producing more waste at ANSTO's Lucas Heights reactor in Sydney.
KEEP WESTERN AUSTRALIA FREE FROM URANIUM MINING
ACE Nuclear Free Collective support traditional owners and their supporters in Western Australia who are fighting to keep the state free from uranium mining.
Despite the WA Labor Government declaring a ban on uranium mining, they have allowed four mine proposals to proceed. These include sites at Yeelirrie, Wiluna and Mulga Rock in the Goldfields region and Kintyre in the Pilbara region. Our work is helping to prevent this unsafe, unnecessary and unwanted industry from getting established in Western Australia.
PROMOTING A NUCLEAR FREE WORLD
ACE Nuclear Free Collective hosts events and workshops to promote a world free from the threat of nuclear weapons, to amplify the voices of Indigenous communities directly impacted by the nuclear industry and to educate people about nuclear and peace issues. Every second year, we coordinate the Radioactive Exposure tour of nuclear sites, taking a large group of supporters out on country to see the reality of uranium mining, the legacy of nuclear weapons testing and the threat of proposed nuclear waste dumps. We also sponsor The Radioactive Show on 3CR community radio to share stories and cover news on the nuclear free movement from Australia and around the world.
