Posted on: Tue 23 Feb 2016

The nuclear debates continues in South Australia after the Royal Commission into the Nuclear Fuel Cycle announced its tentative findings last week.

The Commission has said that the state would benefit from setting up a large nuclear waste storage and disposal facility.

In response, The Aboriginal Congress of South Australia will meet to discuss the findings on Thursday 25 February.  Commissioner Kevin Scarce will attend the meeting.

Tauto Sansbury is Chairperson of the Aboriginal Congress of South Australia and he told Aboriginal Message about his response to the Commission’s findings, the upcoming Congress meeting and what he believes the important message is for Aboriginal people in South Australia following the release of the findings.
