Plans for a World Environment Day festival at  Knox Park in Murwillumbah have been postponed as a result of inclement weather along the east coast.

The weather event which extends from Bundaberg to Tasmania has seen a constant fall of rain in many areas over the last 24 hours.

A statement from the Caldera Environment Centre says they are sad to announce the cancellation  of tomorrow’s celebrations.

‘The World Environment Day festival has been postponed temporarily due to the inclement weather conditions.

‘Even though the worst seems to have passed, many of our supporters will be flooded-in for the time being.

‘Due to the amount of organising that goes into making the event happen we will still be having the festival on a date to be announced soon.’

You can follow the weather on the Bureau of Meteorology’s web page –  and you can keep up with what’s happening at the Caldera Environment Centre on their Facebook page.

On the ground work assists evicted women 

We know the region has some of the highest rents, and highest housing costs in Australia. We all know that this has virtually eliminated affordable housing. We hear the stories of women and children being evicted, of couch surfing and living in cars.

Today is International Day of People with Disability

This language trend around People With a Disability has tended to emphasise the disability rather than the person, which can lead to derogatory labelling, depersonalisation or impersonal, collective references.
