How can I Help?
It is not done and dusted - not by a long way.
This project can be stopped - it is outmoded, risky, and costs have sky-rocketed so much that PoMC's cost-benefit analysis is no longer valid! There is nothing in this for Victorian taxpayers- just the looming threat of permanent degradation of our priceless asset -
Mr. Garrett has NOT had sufficient information put before him by the PoMC to MAKE a proper decision!Here's what you can do:
- Write letters to your local state and federal MP's, Premier Brumby (sample letter)
- Federal Environment, Heritage and the Arts Minister The Hon. Peter Garrett (sample letter)
or write you own.
- Attend Port Corporation information sessions and tell them what you think.
- Get involved with Blue Wedges events.
- Talk to your friends, are they aware that the Brumby Government supports channel deepening in Port Phillip Bay and that thousands of jobs in fishing, diving tourism, eco-tourism and their support industries are under threat?
- Download factsheet and distribute in your local area - many shops are happy to have information on their counter areas, especially health food shops, fish & chip shops, dive shops, fishing tackle shops etc
- Fly a red ribbon from your letterbox or car aerial (red is the official colour for marine distress and is also used at BW rallies for flags, shirts etc.)
- Ask shops if they would be happy to have 'No Channel Deepening!' bumper stickers on sale, contact us for supplies.
- Buy a ‘No Channel Deepening!' bumper sticker for your car at any of our events or stalls - or contact us for where to get them.
- Make 'No Channel Deepening!' 'Save the Bay' and 'Toxic dump the Bay - no Way!' banners for your front yard or upcoming events. Ask your friends with prominent properties on main roads to host a NO TOXIC DUMP or SAVE THE BAY banner in their front yard. Then get out the paint pot!
