Update: Main Arm raids… The police are in Mullum!

After several reports today from readers that there is a 'massive drug operation' and a 'gun and drug unit from Parramatta!', an intrepid Echonetdaily drudge wandered over to Barry Lomath Oval next to the skate park and netball courts in Mullum.

As seen at Doubtful Creek, people protecting water can change the course of government and business. The tale of that action, supported by so many communities throughout the northern rivers, leads the Byron Bay global presentation for World Water Day Saturday March 23.

This free event is taking place at Starseed Gardens, Yagers Lane, and is also streaming on the internet, joining over 100 other scientists, performers and activists for the 24 hour global Water Wheel Symposium.

Other Byron Freshwater Tales follow, with key local people discussing glyphosate, wetlands and recycled water taps. Then others tell Sea Stories, which feature marine parks, dunes, the east marine bioregion and marine animals.

Attendees can join in the panel discussions, dress up to a water theme for the camera or simply enjoy a range of refreshments at the onsite Tea House.

Starting at 3pm, the Byron audience links with coastal California residents and environmental artists who tell of the rising sea levels they are experiencing.

Byron mayor Simon Richardson will open the event, which is facilitated here by biologist and Echonetdaily writer Mary Gardner, assisted by Starseed Gardens.

The Byron Bay node is part of a 24 hour event staged by Australia’s internet performance platform Water Wheel starting on Friday March 22.
