The Greens: No Road Tunnel Public Meeting, Fitzroy Town Hall

On Saturday, 16 August I represented YCAT at the Greens meeting in the Reading Room of the Fitzroy Town Hall.

Greg Barber gave a considered presentation on the Greens Response to the Eddington Report and this was followed by a questions and discussion.

The Greens have invited YCAT to display our flyers and other promotional material at these meetings and to take the opportunity to discuss the issues with participants after the presentations.

I think this is a great opportunity to spread the word  and potentially an important campaign strategy.
