AFTERWORD

At this time the danger of such a Nuclear catastrophe is not great in Australia. We have had one Nuclear Reactor for medical reasons for fifty years and so far there has been no known radiation escapes.

The building of twenty five Power Generating Nuclear Reactors draws a competely different picture. It must be accepted that the danger of a significant radiation accident must be increased. May be inevitable.

The power of one event of similar intensity to that at Chernobyl in the vicinity of Sydney could wipe out a fifth of Australia's population.

AND YOU CAN STOP IT.

You only have to let your Federal member of Parliament know that you will not vote for him or her unless they publicly oppose Nuclear Power Stations. All members of parliament have one primary aim, to have the support of the majority of their electorate. Or put another way, to continue to be members of Parliament. Unless, and I repeat UNLESS they will be retiring after the next election.

My greatest fear is that there will be an unending discussion on Nuclear Power Stations that will reach no firm conclusions before the next election. The decision to reject Nuclear Power must be made now. A decision to build twenty five Power Stations after the next election would be catastrophic.

It must not happen and we can stop it. We are Australians AND a democracy.

 

Never let our children say:

NUCLEAR BOMB
