More of the same from new right-wing Australian prime minister

Australia’s day-old new far-right conservative prime minister, Scott Morrison, imprisoned more children in detention than any other immigration minister; he tried to increase sales tax, which would have pushed people already struggling to make ends meet further into poverty; he paraded a lump of coal in Parliament, as though the climate emergency is some kind of joke; and he's still campaigning to legalise discrimination against the LGBTIQA+ community.

Points raised by the grassroots campaigning group GetUp! after one of the messiest intra-party coups ever experienced in Australia. The best mainstream source I know for up-to-the-minute details of the political turmoil is the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, accessible here.

Traditional Aboriginal land owners “locked out” of nuclear waste dump vote

A South Australian cattle station that is part-owned by the state’s Liberal party director and located next to an Indigenous Protected Area has been provisionally selected as the site of Australia’s first nuclear waste dump, outraging traditional owners.

The head of the Adnyamathanha Traditional Lands Association (ATLA) says the majority of Adnyamathanha people have been denied a vote on a proposed radioactive waste management facility near the town of Hawker in the Flinders Rangers.

Hookina Waterhole (pictured) is a sacred Adnyamathanha site located 8km away from the proposed radioactive waste management facility at Wallerberdina Station, near Barndioota, in the Flinders Rangers, about 500km north of Adelaide, the state capital.

To 5th August - nuclear and climate news

The heatwave continues in the Northern hemisphere, but rarely is that awful left-wing term "climate change"mentioned in news reports. It's affecting all the Northern countries, though there is more news coverage about USA and Europe. Human-caused climate change made heat wave five times more likely.

Much nuclear news about the heatwave, too. The nuclear lobby's poster boy, France, is copping it, with nuclear reactors having further cuts to their production, their cooling systems being unable to cope. Other countries' reactors are similarly affected.

Spent nuclear fuel shipment from Sydney en route to France via South Australia

In a highly regulated and secretive transport operation in the early hours of 29 July the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) moved a shipment of spent fuel rods from the Lucas Heights reactor (near Sydney) to Port Kembla (in South Australia) en-route to reprocessing in France.

Long lived waste will be returned after reprocessing but the federal government still has no plan, process or place for advancing the management of this material.

Atomklo Bure, der Widerstand geht – trotz Repression – weiter

Bure ist überall Atomklo stoppen!

Der Herbst 2018 wird heiß um das französischen Atomkloprojekt in Bure (Lothringen). Es ist damit zu rechnen, dass die Cigéo Bauherrin ANDRA mit Bautätigkeiten fortfährt. Dies obwohl das Endlager noch gar keine Baugenehmigung hat. „Vorarbeiten“ seien aber angeblich zugelassen. Es wird vermutet, dass der Bau der künftigen CASTOR-Bahn im herbst startet 8hier ein Aufruf um diese zu verhindern). Sowie der Bau eines Trafos, der Strom für Cigéo liefern soll. Die Rodung des 1,5 Jahr besetzen und im Februar geräumten Bois-Le-Juc ist auch zu befürchten. Dort will die ANDRA Bohrungen für künftige Lüftungsschächte durchführen.

Die Repression der Vergangenen Wochen die Festnahmen, Hausdurchsuchungen in ganz Frankreich und Dortmund und Beschlagnahmungen wird dem Protest kein Ende bereiten!

Es liegt an uns, den Widerstand gemeinsam über die Grenzen hinaus fortzuführen.

Ein kleiner, subjektiver Beitrag und eine Kritik an den Legalisierungen.

 

Der Artikel ist aus einer Außenperspektive geschrieben und für Individuen oder Gruppen gedacht, die sich mit einem, der Staatsmacht entzogenen, Gebiet solidarisch zeigen woll(t)en, jedoch nicht da waren, keine Kontakte dahin haben oder einfach kein Französisch sprechen.

 

(Leider ist hier mangels Alternativen google translator ein wichtiges Werkzeug. Aber Vorsicht, google merkt sich nur all zu gern den zu übersetzenden Text, samt IP Adresse und eures restlichen Surfverhaltens https://tails.boum.org/install/)

 

 

 

Wir wollen hier nicht auf die rechtlichen Feinheiten des Legalisierungsprozesses eingehen, da wir den Staat als Feind betrachten und uns nicht am Rechtsgeplänkel der Legalist*innen beteiligen wollen.

 

 

 

 

Bure ist überall – Solidarität kennt keine Grenzen

Am Samstagvormittag haben wir – ca. 50 Menschen aus dem Wendland und der Altmark – uns in Lüchow spontan versammelt, um unserer Solidarität mit dem Widerstand im französischen Bure Ausdruck zu verleihen. Vehement erklärten wir unseren Unwillen gegenüber den Hausdurchsuchungen und Ingewahrsamm-Nahmen am Mittwochfrüh.

Aufruf zu Kundgebungen am 27.06. in Solidarität mit den CIGEO/G20-Razzien

Am 20. Juni gab es Hausdurchsuchungen und Festnahmen gegen Gegner*innen des Atommüllendlagers CIGEO. Bei den elf Durchsuchungen wurden vorübergehend 8 Menschen festgenommen, darunter der Anwalt zahlreicher CIGEO-Gegner*innen. Nebst der Staatsanwaltschaft der Kreisstadt Bar-le-Duc, welche einen Teil der Ermittlungen führt, war auch die Hamburger Polizei dabei.

 

Update 23.06.: Repression gegen CIGEO und G20-GegnerInnen in Frankreich

Nach den Hausdurchsuchungen und Festnahmen vom Mittwoch sind mittlerweile sämtliche Betroffene wieder auf „freiem Fuß“. Die beinhaltet allerdings teilweise Meldeauflagen, eingeschränkte Rechte sich auf französischem Territorium frei zu bewegen (etwa das Verbot in Bure und angrenzenden Gemeinden unterwegs zu sein) und teils auch das Verbot untereinander zu Kommunizieren.
