Ycat in association with the Coalition of Transport Action Groups (CTAG), Protectors of Public Lands (PPL) and residential groups from east to west is coordinating a protest rally on World Carfree Day (WCD).
This is an important opportunity to send a clear message to the state and local government, along the proposed route, that the community wants the Doncaster Rail and not a freeway.
It will be huge!
The rally will open with four formal speakers (to be advised) and this will be followed by an “open mike session” – giving local residents and concerned community members the opportunity to tell the state and federal governments how the proposed East-West Link freeway will impact on their lives, their homes and their community. Stay tuned for updates.
Date: Saturday (WCD), 22 September 2012
Time: 10.45 for 11 am start
Location: Public Open Space, corner of Nicholson Street and Alexandra Parade
