Community Protest – Deliver Us from Diesel – March 19

February 18, 2013 2 Comments

The rescheduled Deliver Us From Diesel Truck Protest is on 19 March 8:00am

We will be blocking Shepherd’s Bridge (where Footscray Rd crosses the Maribyrnong River) from 8:00 – 8:30am SHARP!

We’re holding this protest to send a clear message to the Ballieu government that we need a Truck Bypass now because:
• Diesel exhaust causes cancer (World Health Organisation)
• More than 20,000 trucks use our roads every day (VicRoads)
• We have the highest levels of diesel exhaust ever recorded on a residential street (EPA)
• Diesel exhaust impacts our children’s health (EPA)
• Maribyrnong has the highest hospital admissions for respiratory illness (VicHealth)

This protest will be a safe family friendly event held in consultation with the Vic Police.

After all, colleges, clean air, the cost of living, quiet neighborhoods are really vital. But, heartiness is more important .

You may have heard about generic viagra 100mg online (Read more finasteride reviews). Most consumers possibly believe the forcefulness of Finasteride is well documented. What remedy does treat the medicinal condition? So if you are experiencing the problems, it is essential to see a qualified pharmacist instantly for a complete medicinal inspection. Don’t forget, the best way to avoid hokey medicines is to buy prescription medicines like Finasteride from a trustworthy online service with which you are relaxed.

    I'll be there with bells on! Driving to work today (8AM) was a nightmare down Buckley St because the traffic was actually gridlocked, mostly due to the shear number of large (even triple tray) trucks driving through Footscray during peak hour. I don't actually blame the truck drivers, I blame the poor planning and lack of local government governance which has similarities to the cities of Asia (think Bangkok or Manila). We have a situation which is causing economic damage, environmental damage and community health issues. The situation is out of control, truly this is a tragedy of the commons.

    Yes you're spot on and we don't blame the drivers either. Unfortunately this kind of protest action will inconvenience a lot of drivers but it is a last resort we have been pushed to by a complete lack of engagement at government level.
