Roos to be massacred for another bloody car rally: Bathurst, New South Wales

National Parks & Wildlife have given two licences to Bathurst Regional Council to shoot 140 kangaroos on Mount Panorama, home of Bathurst’s car race to be held in 2 weeks.
"These are the last of the actual town’s kangaroos – the last of thousands of generations that have been pushed into the small pocket of Mnt Panorama and managing to survive." See also, these articles, for similar concerns about cruelty to wildlife during another recent car rally.

REPCO Rally injunction raced through court up blind alley

"We knew we were gone when the Judge said,
'Time's up, you’ve got one more issue you can raise.' We hadn’t even started. We had only just got past the argument where she dismissed both our ecologists’ reports." Before it has even been run, the REPCO car race has damaged local democracy with impacts far exceeding local boundaries. Environment and democracy, go hand in hand. Environmental destruction and corruption follow closely behind destruction of democracy through unbridled commerce. We think that all judges in the land should be concerned about this.
