A newly formed community group against a proposed Telstra mobile-communications tower in Wilsons Creek are holding their next meeting at Wilsons Creek Hall tonight (Wednesday August 29) from 6pm. 

Organisers of the Environment & Community Safe from Radiation group say they will be discussing where the development application (DA) process is up to and actions taken from the August 23 meeting.

‘Stopping the tower in Wilsons Creek is still our number one priority,’ they say, ‘but we also recognise that until the Australian Standards are changed to reflect current science and medical understanding of the effects of radiation on people and wildlife, no community in Australia will be safe.’

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.”
