Support your local activists if you don't want Australia to be girt by concrete!

Protectors of Public Land Victoria Inc. wish their friends a Freeway Free Christmas. For this they need your support. They need your financial support. Seriously, this is serious. Their battle is ours and yours, but it needs funding. See inside for more detail.

Attached is PPLVic's message for the forthcoming "festive season" and for the New Year 2014.

"Our wish for the New Year is that you contribute to our legal challenge to the East West Link. The Royal Park Protection Group Inc (RPPG) and Protectors of Public Lands Victoria Inc (PPL VIC) have engaged a legal team who made a submission and who will represent us at the hearing of the Comprehensive Impact Statement on the East West Link at the Assessment Planning Panel in February or March. (We are the only community groups so far with legal backup.)" writes Secretary Julianne Bell.

Protectors of Public Land Victoria are the only community group to have legal representation at the forthcoming planning panel hearings about East West Link. PPLVic is what stands between the East West link going ahead or dying on the planning table. They have the expert witnesses it takes to convince the panel -of which more will be revealed in March. It will in fact take a month to complete the hearings. The whole of March. PPLVic has one day to itself. If everyone who cared about this sent $10.00 - the equivalent of three cups of coffee cost - PPLVic will be able to fund its case. So, please give yourselves an enduring Christmas present and Fund PPLVics defense of Melbourne against this attack of the concrete barons.

Trains, trains and more ttrains...........

Trains run mainly on the plains

And nobody ever complains.

Trucks, cars too many to score

Polluting the air forever more.

Pollies, big business it is their aim

To give us, but, more of the same.

Wreck our houses and our parks

The car lobby, the loud dog barks.

Do it my way son or not at all -

Do it my way or you're sure to fall.

So like it or lump it, you out there

Coz in the end, we don't care!

We do care and in the end

Read the message that we'll send.

It'll be that you're out on your ear

Remember, that we live here!!!
