Dave Sweeney has been active in the uranium and nuclear debate in Australia and overseas for many years through his work with the media, trade unions and environment groups. He is the Australian Conservation Foundation's national nuclear campaigner and also works on mining, resource and Indigenous issues with ACF's North Australia program. He holds a vision of a nuclear free Australia that is positive about its future and honest about its past.
