Sparks of hope

Jill Keogh, Federal. 

Two things I learnt on Anzac Day;-

  1. is working to have the decision to send Australian men and women to war, made by the entire parliament, NOT the prime minister or executive alone.
  2.  APEEL a group of highly- qualified environmental law experts is working to overhaul our environmental systems to protect what’s left of the natural world. The blueprint will be released within the next few months.

Considering the destructive effects of the former, as an eco-feminist great grandmother I connect the two concepts, and have renewed hope for the life of my next great granddaughter, due May 12.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
