Geneth Harrington, Byron Bay

Conspiracy theories do abound. Politicians putting boss foxes in charge of the environmental hen houses. And now ‘our Council’ are planning to evict a devout and selfless long-time local man, Jaimini, from the Belongil beach sands. This gentle generous man has supplied beach shade umbrellas, set up daily for public use, free!

Under a simple shade shelter Jaimini welcomes people to rest and explore peacefulness. Mayor Simon Richardson would do himself a favour by sitting down with Jaimini and slowing down, chilling out and experiencing what is freely on offer on Belongil Beach sands. Let him stay.
