Australia’s oldest public square faces the bulldozers

For the past 5 years, community members have been protesting at Thompson Square in Windsor:  every single day, 24 hours a day, Christmas Day included.

The aim of this extraordinary vigil is to stop the NSW government from constructing a massive bridge and road right through the nationally significant heritage square – Australia’s oldest public square. Despite their efforts, the NSW government is pushing ahead with their plan. See the recent media coverage shown on Current Affair recently.

PEOPLE POWER

It's the little town with a huge history, and some of the most passionate locals you'll ever meet. In fact they've staged a 24/7 protest for the past 5 years, with not one day, or night, off. What's got them so fired up?#9ACA | WATCH THE FULL STORY: https://www.9now.com.au/a-current-affair/2017/extras/latest/171020/people-power

Sign the petition here: community-action-for-windsor-bridge-save-the-birthplace-of-the-fair-go-and-australia-s-oldest-town-square.  There is a rally there on Sunday 29th from noon.

It is just incomprehensible that this precinct is going to be destroyed. Why not find another route?
