About the uranium seminar

A one vote majority of the Parliament of Greenland repealed the so called zero tolerance policy on uranium mining in Greenland in October 2013. Since then, the two governments that have held office have been working actively to prepare for uranium mining and export of Greenlandic uranium.

The repeal of the zero tolerance happened with no direct public participation.

Inuit Ataqatigiit is a political party currently in opposition in Greenland. We have a clear no to uranium policy and we work hard to ensure a national referendum on the question of uranium mining in Greenland. Our members of parliament voted no to the repeal of the zero tolerance in 2013.

There is this far no uranium mines in Greenland. Inuit Ataqatigiit works hard to ensure the people of Greenland a direct voice in the question of whether Greenland should mine and export uranium or other radioactive minerals or not.

The debate in Greenland is widely politicized. From Inuit Ataqatigiit we have made it clear, that a no to uranium should not be a question of which party a person belongs to or votes for. It is our position, that all citizens of Greenland should have their voice heard and that all have a right to say no to this major question.

It is also Inuit Ataqatigiits view, that the debate in Greenland until now has been too one-sided. The information distributed to the wider public has been either from the corporation holding the exploration license or from the government. We need to hear other voices as well.

With this seminar we want to add to diversified information to the local population of Narsaq and to the public of Greenland in general.
