Community members and local anti-Westconnex campaigners were joined by Lord Mayor Clover Moore and Greens MP for Newtown, Jenny Leong, on Monday morning Sept 19 and stopped the first bulldozer destroying parts of Sydney Park. A protest campsite was established which was later raided at 3am by the Redfern police and WestConnex who pulled out the protestors who had been previously assured that they would not be moved during the night.
However, the camp remains and is growing as more people join the campaign to Stop WestConnex bulldozers here. Join them and sign up at the protest camp on Euston Road, Alexandria (adjacent to Sydney Park) or Call our office on (02) 9517 2800 or email [email protected] for more information.
WestConnex planned to undertake utility and geotechnical investigations as a prelude to widening Euston Road in Alexandria. This work would mean that a stand of large eucalypts and other native species would be uprooted as part of this work.
WestConnex plans to take large swathes of parkland from Sydney Park and surrounds in forthcoming months.
