Please join this peaceful protest outside the NSW Labor party state conference to support the demands of communities across Sydney who want the multi-billion-dollar privatised tollway scam that is WestConnex stopped and to oppose the new tolls that are being imposed on M4 users for the next 43 years.
WestConnex is a scam to enrich the corporate mates of the government at the expense of communities, the environment and the liveability of this city. It will not "future proof" Sydney's transport system but, instead, seriously set it back.
We are calling on the NSW ALP to commit to cancel all WestConnex contracts signed by the Liberal government of NSW WestCONnex and to immediately abolish the new tolls on the M4.
Please wear black, if possible, to give a strong visual element to the protest. Hand-held, black and yellow, face-sized cut outs of the girl in a gas mask graphic will be provided to draw attention to the pollution that WestConnex will create.
We have also created a facebook event here: www.facebook.com/events/135160690405229
