    News: Sydney Park protest camp established and stops bulldozers

    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. 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 as well as displacing the local fauna including 2 wonderful Tawney Frogmouth owls which are nesting in trees above the campsite.  WestConnex plans to take large swathes of parkland from Sydney Park and surrounds in forthcoming months.

    (Protesters at Beverly Hills site of the critically endangered Cooks River Castlereagh Ironbark Forest Sept 5, 2016)Greens NSW MP and Environment spokesperson Dr Mehreen Faruqi has called on the NSW Government to release details of the offset, accusing the Government of attempting to clear the land before securing an offset. Despite clearing of the land to be imminent, the NSW Environment Minister stated on Friday that “Roads and Maritime Services [RMS] intends to offset that clearing with ironbark forest located in the Sydney region”. 1.5ha of the critically endangered Cooks River Castlereagh Ironbark Forest will be cleared as part of the New M5 portion of WestConnex at Beverly Grove using a ‘biobanking’ system that allows the destruction to be offset at another location.
