Clarion call for 'renewal'.


Queensland's Labor Government, under Premier Anna Bligh, has been returned to power for another term.  In her election night speech, she acknowledged that the swing against Labor had given a strong message to the government, and gave an undertaking for renewal within cabinet and the process of government..  We can hope that this promised renewal, and the extraordinarily strong position that the Premier now has as Australia's first elected female head of state, means that she can show some real strength in correcting some of the situations she inherited from the former Beattie administration.  In particular, she gave an undertaking to 'the regions' for a better performance by government on regional issues. A good place to start would be in the electorates north of Brisbane where Labor lost every single seat in the entire region...

Lose the Dam or Lose the Election! GMA delivery of 1000 letters and postcards to McNamara


A colourful procession of endangered species and protestors where hounded by the Grim Reaper today as they delivered 1000 protest letters and postcards to Mr McNamara's office. The Grim Reaper symbolises both the death sentence the proposed dam represents to endangered species and also the death of democracy inherent in the way in which our concerns have been ignored by the Government.

Photographs of the delivery are available at:
