Australian uranium must facilitate China's nuclear arsenal - Greens
"A vote for Mike Rann is a vote for open slather exports" – Brown Greens Leader Bob Brown says China is now moulding Australia's uranium export policy.
"The greed factor has taken over. The Howard government will soon get Labor backing to sell Australian uranium into China's nuclear industry with the inevitable facilitation of China's nuclear weapons stockpile," Senator Brown said.
"Our uranium will either go into China's nuclear arsenal, able to threaten Australian cities, or will free uranium from Tibet and other domestic sources to do the same job," Senator Brown said.
"South Australian Labor Premier Mike Rann's
push, along with Martin
Ferguson, to open uranium exports to China and India leaves the Greens as the bulwark of opposition to nuclear weapons and waste proliferation. This is a defining time in Australian nuclear politics," Senator Brown said.
"People who vote Labor or Liberal in South Australia on Saturday are voting for open slather uranium exports," Senator Brown said.
