“When the Dust Settles” a 37 mins DVD unmasking the hidden dangers behind uranium mines…
presented by Peter Simpson – Electrical Trades Union
During World War II, the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan were destroyed by atomic bombs dropped by the United States military on August 6 and August 9 respectively , killing at least 100,000 civilians outright and many more over time.
Hiroshima Day commemorates the victims and the survivors of the nuclear bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki sixty five years ago.
It is a day to remember the horrific legacy of nuclear armaments and the uranium industry that supplies the fuel for these weapons of mass destruction.
With an expanding uranium industry, a proposed nuclear waste dump at Muckaty Station in the Northern Territory, a “research” reactor that has been used for weapons – related research, and its role in the US military nuclear umbrella, Australia is supporting an ongoing nuclear arms race.
Australia must stop digging itself deeper in to the nuclear nightmare and become a beacon of global hope for peace by refusing to mine and export uranium.
