WHAT: Rally - No WestConnex! No tolls!
WHEN: Monday 5 June at midday
WHERE: Shop 23, Ground Floor Tattersalls Centre, 510-534 High Street, Penrith
BRING: Bring your best banners and posters.
WHY: For too long we have heard misleading spin and outright lies from the Minister for WestConnex and Member for Penrith, Stuart Ayres, about the supposed benefits of WestConnex. But the facts are now clear - these destructive new roads will save drivers less than five minutes during peak hours, with a tiny 1% of drivers across the city standing to benefit at all. It is a sham.
The thing is, this message is cutting through in the west, too. People across the west and south-west of our city have been fed a simplistic line, but they're seeing through it.
The Minister wants to toll people in western Sydney for 43 years. This is completely unfair as the $500 million cost to widen the M4 could be paid back in less than three years. That's why, Monday week, June 5, people from the east, the inner west and the west will be standing together and taking action outside Stuart Ayres' office in Penrith.
We've seen time and time again, that every single person standing up against this destructive project makes a difference - let us know if you can make it.
