Government to citizens: no nukes!
Australia's federal government wants to put a repository for low-and medium-level nuclear waste near the South Australian town of Woomera. The ad may raise the level of awareness of the proposal among South Australians: formal public notice was previously limited to an inconspicuous ad that asked for public comment on the site.
State Environment Minister John Hill told Australia's Special Broadcasting Service that polling shows 87 percent of South Australians oppose the dump, yet the federal government is ignoring their concerns.
