Blog: Legal Fundraiser

It was standing room only at the Stop Westconnex Legal Fundraiser last night. More than 250 people turned out to support the dozens of protesters arrested under the NSW government's punitive anti-protest laws. We raised more than $6000 for the incredible community activists arrested throughout the campaign and heard great speeches from Wendy Bacon and Elizabeth Farrelly who have been huge supporters. 

Organised by Westconnex Action Group and No Westconnex: Public Transport
