The NSW State Liberal Government is planning to send Nuclear Waste from the site of an old uranium smelter in Hunters Hill to the Western Sydney Suburb of Lidcombe. The proposed storeage facility is within walking distance of thousands of local homes. Local residents have produced this film to try and explain why Nuclear Waste shouldn't be brought to our backyards.
