Anti-rubbish letter response
IN RESPONSE to the two letters last week accusing the tireless and hard working teams of both AMCS and WRAD for the posters attached to telegraph poles around Cannonvale – your claims are unfounded.
On closer inspection, you might have noticed that the posters - calling on Commbank to reject funding the controversial Abbot Point coal port expansion and proposed new mega coal mines in the Galilee basin – were signed, in fact, by a group called the Reef Defenders.
Everywhere we look, we are constantly being littered with media messaging, selling us more and more stuff.
Perhaps messages promoting social change and greater awareness about threats to our environment and economy, should be welcomed?
It should also be noted here that our reef is not in danger from some flour, water and scraps of paper being washed into our gutters.
India's dirty coal behemoth on our doorstep?
Now that's something to worry about. Hayley Sestokas Cannonvale
