Anti-rub­bish let­ter re­sponse

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

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
