East West Link protesters show united front


Melbourne Times Weekly: East West Link protesters show united front (18 June 2013)

Roberto Dandra (pictured) joined fellow protesters who packed out Fitzroy Town Hall on June 13 to fight the state government’s controversial East-West Link.

About 400 people gathered for the launch of the Trains Not Toll Roads campaign, including City of Yarra mayor Jackie Fristacky and former Western Australian planning minister Alannah MacTiernan.

Campaigners say the road is financially irresponsible and will delay progress on rail projects which would alleviate the congestion on Melbourne’s roads.
