Sue McLeod, Myocum.
We were three middle-aged ladies seeking shade on a park bench at Tweed City, while we awaited our appointment with Justine Elliott’s office across the road. We had a couple of placards propped against a shop window, one of which mentioned our main mission, to persuade Justine to publicly speak out against the Adani mine.
A security man approached us and said that he had been asked to tell us to ‘move on’ and not cause any trouble. We were stunned, but did then notice we were outside a local CBA branch.
Is this how paranoid the blameless bank staff have become, despite CBA’s recent decision not to lend money to the Adani development? Are we breaking any laws by peacefully practising our democratic rights in Tweed Heads?
