YOU can STOP the expansion of Australia's BIGGEST Uranium Mine.
The Roxstop website has been designed to help you take positive action to oppose the proposed expansion of Olympic Dam uranium mine in South Australia.
NOW IS A CRITICAL TIME TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT URANIUM MINING AND ITS DANGEROUS CONSEQUENCES.
The proposed expansion of Olympic Dam uranium mine in South Australia, owned by BHP Billiton poses a grave threat to the environment, wasting and polluting water, infringing the rights of indigenous people of the region and will inevitably contribute to weapons proliferation.
BHP enjoys the most ridiculous privileges through the Roxby Downs
Indenture Act which exempts them from significant legislation including
the Aboriginal Heritage Act, the Water Resources Act and the Freedom of
Information Act. Their proposed three fold expansion will create massive
amounts of waste, which is already being mismanaged and has already
contaminated the environment undetected for years. These tailings are
carcinogenic and toxic.
How can any business be deemed to be ethical and within the law under
these conditions? In a democratic society, why is BHP Billiton allowed to
operate outside the laws that govern us all?
We need to take action now!
Uranium mining is set to expand in Australia unless we actively oppose it.
BHPB wants approval for its production at Olympic Dam to radically increase
and plans for more uranium mines in Australia are underway. Uranium is
radioactive and mining it unleashes a potential for serious harm to us, our
children and our childrens children.
