How do we achieve Change? Parliament Steps – Melbourne.

THIS was a good showing, news crews the works – pity the Carbon Tax was bigger news that night, and we were gazumped by it…

Still, Thanks to all that protested and sent the message higher…These photos were taken with about half the crowd there !

….We have an opportunity to take our battle with Council Planning to the next Level, and it is next Wednesday, on the steps of Parliament !

This came in response to a letter to Council and MPs explaining how we are frustrated by the lack of action, and the excess of patronising comments like “you are doing everything right.”

We have a bunch of Banners & placards ready for Wednesday. We want to be seen on TV and in the Paper – make sure the message is seen everywhere. You can also do your own placard.

It needs to get back to Manningham Council that the residents are a force to be reckoned with, and this is a big issue, all the way to State Government.

Now we need YOU.

For those close to the Curlew court fight, this is almost mandatory – if you can arrange the time, we need you there.

It will take you less than three hours, we can car pool, or train to Parliament Station, it can’t get much easier.

Please contact us and tell us you are coming, so we can arrange for you to get your banner.

If you know others that are not on email, please print and pass this on to them.

Brian Tee is the Shadow Planning Minister for Victoria, he is organizing this, and has invited other groups like ours.

Recently Mr Guy (the current State Planning Minister,) said that he had backed down on imposing development against community wishes at Phillip Island because of local community concerns. People are wondering if the Planning Minister will now listen to their concerns about inappropriate development in their communities.

On Wednesday 12 October the Victorian Parliament is sitting. This is a great opportunity to see whether Mr Guy’s decision at Phillip Island was simply a response to a Tweet of Miley Cyrus or whether he has indeed decided to listen to community concerns.

Details:
Gather on Wednesday, 12 October
1pm, Front Steps, State Parliament
Corner Bourke and Spring St, Melbourne.

If you are concerned about development in your area and want to send a message to the Government please meet at the steps of Parliament on 12 October at 1pm. As we have seen at Phillip Island a strong community response can make a difference so please ask your friends, family and neighbours to come along.

(Just in case, we are still trying to see if we can get Miley Cyrus along.) ….
