MAPW-ACF 2008: Nuclear warfare threats should end plans to sell Australian uranium to Russia

MAPW and the Australian Conservation Foundation say the current conflict in Georgia, with the renewed threat of the use of nuclear weapons, provides another reason why Australia should scrap plans to sell uranium to Russia. Dr Sue Wareham, President of the Medical Association for the Prevention of War (Australia) was invited to address the Australian Government's Joint Standing Committee enquiring into the proposed sale of Australian uranium to Russia, on Monday 25 August 2008.
