Why socialists should oppose nuclear power11:45am Fri 29 Mar
About this session
Addressing the Institute of Public Affairs earlier this year, Peter Dutton proclaimed “the time has come for a sensible and sober conversation on nuclear power in Australia.” With AUKUS, Australia is experiencing the most serious proposal for expanded domestic nuclear technology in decades. It’s no coincidence this comes at a time of increasing imperialist tensions between the US and China. The nuclear industry is not safe, clean or renewable – the push for its expansion should be opposed by the left today.
