Stand up for the mountain

rsz_no_cable_car.jpgIt’s crunch time in the campaign to stop the cable car up the face of kunanyi/ Mt Wellington. The proposal is being fast tracked by the Tasmanian government (background here).

If you’ll be anywhere near Hobart on Sunday 6th May please join this event and show your opposition to the desecration of the mountain.

Meet at 11am, Cascade Gardens, South Hobart.

Speakers include Bob Brown, Denison MP Andrew Wilkie, Richard Flanagan, Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre and others.

The Cable Car Company have said that 'public opposition is virtually non existent'.

Put it in your calendar! Please share this event. More details coming.

Residents Opposed to the Cable Car (ROCC) and Respect the Mountain (RTM) are both fighting the proposal to build a cable car development on kunanyi/Mt Wellington.

The groups have also organised a chuffed campaign to raise funds to fight the proposed development and organised a petition asking Carlton and United Breweries not to support the proposed development.
