Last weekend myself, my partner and our three young children gathered at Bentley to protest against the drilling and damage that will be done to our waterways, only to read in your latest issue that our own backyard creek is being poisoned.
Surely there must be some other way to remove coral trees without the use of Roundup?
Common sense would be that anything strong enough to kill a tree is going to have repercussions on everything else around it.
I’ve stocked our local waterways with thousands of native fish over the past years, all in the name of trying to rehabilitate Wilsons Creek from years of abuse, and I’m pretty pissed off that Rous would allow council to inject Roundup into the waterways.
For everyone downstream, it’s the water you’re drinking. Maybe we should research if chlorine gets rid of Roundup, because guess what if it doesn’t.
Perhaps council should walk next door into the library and read a book called Uno’s Garden. Even the kids get it.
