Shoot: Shipment of Nuclear Waste Returns to Australia (Video)

GP0STPGX6
Greenpeace activists bear witness to a shipment of nuclear waste as it returns to Australia. The nuclear waste was generated by the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and sent to France in 2001 to be reprocessed. The nuclear waste has been classified as high-level waste by French authorities, contradicting Australia’s claims over its radioactivity, and it is carried by the BBC Shanghai, a vessel with a very poor safety record. A Greenpeace investigation found the waste still contains quantities of plutonium – highly toxic even in small quantities – despite reprocessing by French state-owned nuclear company, Areva.
The nuclear waste is unloaded off the BBC Shanghai at Port Kembla in southern Sydney and is then transported to Lucas Heights by road for interim storage.
