World Carfree Day Rally: No Tunnel, Freeway and/or Tollroad Saturday, 22 September 2012

Is this the best bus stop in the world (library bus stop, Bolivia)?

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.
