Protest: St Kilda Road vandalised 21 Feb, 1pm in front of the domain building

St Kilda Road, Melbourne's Champs Elysees, is being vandalised for population growth that we don't need, but big business is imposing. Join a public protest Wednesday 21 Feb 2018, 1pm-1.30pm. The meeting is now in the reserve which is outside 1 Albert Road. It’s a triangle of land in the fork of Albert Road. Some more details and yellow arrow on map inside.

Come and see for yourself the disaster of our beautiful boulevard.

A shameful destruction

It is hard to believe our state government is allowing the world's most beautiful boulevard to be destroyed. (The Age 15/2). How dare it destroy St. Kilda Road in this shameful way? Why can't it learn from London, which is 'deep tunnelling' for 42 kilometres for the new line, Crossrail. This work is being done without damagin anything on top. In contrat, we vandals are bulding the relatively small Metro Tunnel and wrecking this wonderful area by cutting and filling (because it is cheaper than deep tunnelling) and bulldozing those beautiful trees. People will have to cope with years of a mess-up city. Vote out the government.
Mary Drost, letter published in The Age, Feb 16, 2018.


Speakers included Michael Buxton, Senator Derryn Hinch, Barry Jones and the former Governor of Victoria Alex Chernov. Later Mary Drost will be sending out all the speeches by email thanks to Tony Michael and Jill Quirk. Mary will probably also send them to MPs so that they can see for themselves these well known people very angry with what is going to happen in St KIlda Road. A disaster. Facebook photos here:
