BLOG: Leichhardt P&C Rally

Thank you for inviting us today Leichhardt High - and for your spirit and determination. 

LAW welcomes the decision of the Minister in ruling out the offensive proposal to locate a dive site directly next to our local high school. Now our attention must turn to ensure the equally offensive Darley Rd site is ruled out.

Blog: WestCONnex about to make life unbearable for……….

The residents of Euston Road Alexandria are about to have all of the trees in front of their apartments removed. The beautiful old figs over the road will probably be destroyed as well.

Blog: No Westconnex at March in March

A few shots of the stop #westCONnex contingent at March in March.

It was fitting to see Tony Abbott there. It was his decision to flush $3.5 billion of our money down the #westCONnex toilet bowl. As was revealed in the Federal Audit released earlier this month, most of this money is still sitting unused in the state governments coffers. It's not too late to redirect this to money to public transport and solve, rather than exacerbate, Sydney's traffic woes.

Blog: Defending Sydney Park - Day 19

 

Friday 7 October 2016, was Day 19 of the Save Sydney Park blockade. 

Hundreds of mature trees lining Euston Road and in Sydney Park are threatened with removal for the Baird Government's giant $17 billion tollroad project. 

After a standoff lasting 18 days, WestConnex finally gained planning approval for the removal of a small number of trees on either side of the point at which the Munni stormwater channel passes under Euston Road, St Peters. Amid wild scenes, blockaders were dragged away by a large force of police.

The blockade continues.14224720_1226148947448749_6311985084984610404_n.jpg
