Westconnex – the people reclaim their council and their democracy

 
From the group No WestConnex: Public transport not motorways

‘200 local community members attended the first meeting of the ‘Inner West Council’ imposed by Mike Baird.

‘The community sent a clear message to the administrator Richard Pearson when he was forced to leave the meeting after he claimed it had become ‘untenable’.

‘The recently sacked mayors of Ashfield, Leichhardt & Marrickville are now speaking to the crowd.

‘This is local democracy, and Baird cannot take it from us.’

Here is the link to a video by the WestConnex Action Group of democracy in action. The people reclaim their council

As they also say:

‘Tonight our community succeeded in showing Premier Baird that he cannot impose his will on us without a fight.

‘In an incredible show of people power, there will be no Inner West Council meeting chaired by Premier Baird’s administrator tonight.

‘This was our final message to the Premier.

‘Thanks to all involved and all who supported!’

Here is that final message to the Premier.
