When: Saturday 14 September 11am – 1pm
Where: Kellys Bush, Nelson Parade, Hunter’s Hill
Who: Green Bans legend Jack Mundey, James Ryan from the Nature Conservation Council, Corinne Fisher from the Better Planning Network, community members and local and young Greens.
Join Jack, David and many others at the birthplace of the Green Bans movement to take a stand against the O’Farrell Government’s proposed planning laws that threaten the legacy of the Green Bans by once again putting developer profits before the interests of the community and the environment.
There will be a special appearance from the wonderful Ecopella, a guided Aboriginal heritage walk to learn about the rich cultural and environmental heritage of this wonderful site. While some light refreshments will be provided, feel free to bring a picnic – we can call it a ‘catered occupation’.
We will place “Hazzard tape” around parts of Kellys Bush to highlight the need protect the community and the environment from the government’s plan to take NSW planning laws back to before the time of the Green Bans.
Kellys Bush was the site of the first Green Bans protest 40 years ago and it is precious places like this that once again face the threat of bulldozers if these laws pass parliament.
