Peaceful civil disobedience has played an important role in the history of democracy around the world and is being used across Australia to highlight and challenge injustice and environmental destruction.
Nearly 20,000 submissions against WestConnex including many from professional bodies have been ignored by the Baird government as it pushes its tollway agenda through communities destroying lives and our environment. The cost NSW will bear as a result of this disastrous project cannot be quantified.

With respect for our community, our opposition, ourselves, and our environment we affirm that, if necessary, we will engage in peaceful direct action to protect our community, our health and our climate from WestConnex.
