... and so, it seems, does the government. If our local government has their way, as of next Saturday there will be a 4,000 tonne piece of rubbish (aka HMAS Adelaide) permanently stationed off Avoca Beach. Strangely the two groups of citizens who will be directly affected by this were never consulted. They are the residents of Avoca and nearby suburbs who were never formally made aware of the location (and only found out about it when it was seemingly too late to challenge), and the countless ocean residents for whom an Environmental Impact Statement was never conducted. Those of us with a voice should join the chorus in saying "No Ship!" Please, let Peter Garrett know how you feel by emailing him here, and stop the potential devastation of this beautiful, natural habitat.
