The Save the Mary River Coordinating Group has produced a series of three short television ads to bring the issue of the Mary River Dam proposal to the attention of viewers in Metropolitan Queensland. They can be viewed in Windows Media Player and will take some time to download (about 3MB) each.
Although political in nature - protesting against the actions of the current state government, they do not support any particular political party. In fact, local candidates from all parties as well as independants were opposed to the proposal. The issue caused a sitting member to leave the Labour party and another long-standing labor candidate to leave the party and run as an independent.
The Save The Mary Co-ordinating Group is not affiliated in any way with any political party or with any candidate. Its members include voters for all political parties and they choose to work in any way that they can to ensure the best outcome for the Mary River and the people that live in its catchment.
