The Rainbow Region: the place to escape, the place to find yourself. The place where you can escape the impacts of things like microwave towers – or at least make the argument against them. The place where you can sit and meditate or get up and agitate against the prevailing apathy that accepts the grinding advancement of technological solutions without questioning their impact on the community or environment.
Opposition to the 45m NBN tower at Durrumbul is being brought into focus this Saturday 1 December from 2pm with some famous musos and barefoot dancing at Durrumbul Hall in Main Arm – the birthplace of the so much of the regions alternative culture.
The 45m tower will not only emit microwaves directly over a local preschool, primary school, and community gathering space; it will impact directly on many people who moved to the area to escape microwave radiation because they have electromagnetic hypersensitivity.
The event is highlighting the danger of the microwave radiation that the tower will emit over the community, local school and pre-school, and community gathering space. They are raising money to fight against the imposition of the NBN tower that is slated to transmit over the birthplace of alternative culture in the region.
There will be auctions of beautiful precious stones from the area valued at $1,000, raffles fund and frivolity so get your kids together, your dancing feet on, and maybe even bring a picnic (or enjoy the food and drink available for sale), and enjoy music from Shelbi, the Vaggaphonics and DJs Short Circuit, Big Foot and Strange Planet with plenty of surprises along the way. Live performances from Miley and the Milkshakes, Doin a little Thing and Maria & Shelly, and other great entertainment will make the hall rock.
Tickets are $20 on the door.
