24 Hour Police Station and the Armadale Town Forum

Written for Armadale Town Forum held on 20th June, 2013.

Hi fellow residents and official guests.

I want to read this letter out to all of you because I believe it is important to state what we in Armadale want and why.

What we really want in Armadale is to change how safe we feel in our own community, especially at night. We want to permanently secure our town centre and public transport so restaurants and other businesses can thrive at night.

The police station should have a presence of its own in the town centre. The existing station is out of sight from the town centre and even further from the train station. Continue reading 24 Hour Police Station and the Armadale Town Forum

March Against Monsanto, Agent Orange and GMOs

Last weekend I took part in the March Against Monsanto here in Perth.

It was a good turn out for Perth. Between 1500 and 2000 people attended on a day which started at Parliament House, continued with a march through the city and ended up with speeches in Raine Square.

Monsanto are the most unethical company in the worldresponsible for the likes of Agent Orange and genetically modified crops which had a variety of negative effects when independently tested on rats.

Monsanto are also responsible for promoting irresponsible use of ‘Round Up’, which we now know is linked with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Autism, Depression, Cancer and other medical conditions. It’s no surprise then that the local population are resisting Monsanto’s attempts to bully their way into WA’s agriculture industry.
