Morgan Knoesen, Brunswick Heads
With one month to the election and your potential resignation from the Byron Shire Council as deputy mayor looming, could you please place a moratorium on the Byron bypass? Or cancel the bypass altogether to show your full support of the International Greens Charter and Code of Ethics.
The destruction of 1.5 hectares of old-growth wetlands and koala habitat for this project is unacceptable. It is not okay!
Additionally please refund our Byron Shire ratepayers the astounding, is it $2,000,000(?), already spent on the project.
Like West Byron and Adani, driven by the majority of our nation’s accountants, economists and politicians desire for perpetual growth, the Byron bypass mirrors these developments on a micro scale.
Our leaders have failed us, and the people and children now have to resort to mass civil disobedience to get things (un)done.
Please support NSW Greens MP Tamara Smith to dismantle this project and stand true to your Greens code of conduct and ethics.
