BARNGARLA COURT WIN OVER NUCLEAR DUMP
July 18, 2023
Today, in a history making moment, The Federal Court of Australia through Her Honour Justice Charlesworth, handed down a decision which was favourable to the applicant the Barngarla Determination Aboriginal Corporation. This has resulted in the quashing of the decision to place the waste dump site at Napandee near Kimba.
The No Dump Alliance – made up of spokespeople and members from Traditional Owner groups, church and faith groups, trade unions, civil society and environmental groups – was formed in 2016 to fight plans for a high-level international nuclear waste dump in South Australia.
The government is targeting a site called Napandee, near the town of Kimba on the Eyre Peninsula. This proposed nuclear waste dump site is strongly contested by people in the farming community and it is unanimously opposed by Barngarla Traditional Owners.
Every attempt to establish a radioactive waste facility in South Australia and the Northern Territory has been met with First Nations and community resistance. And every time, we have won.

South Australians have fought and won nuclear waste battles before.
And we’ll do it again!
