Mary River Councils Rally in Opposition to Dam

Representatives from councils along the Mary River addressed a huge 'NO DAM' rally in Gympie last night.

In just over 2 weeks since the mega dam at Traveston was announced, there has been nothing but widespread condemnation of the plan. The rally drew in excess of 3500 people from the Mary Valley and beyond.

An ABC online poll, running all the previous week, recorded their biggest ever response with , currently, 85% of respondents saying that south-east Queensland did not need more dams.

The Conondale Range Committee was represented at a meeting of conservation interests organised by the Sunshine Coast Environment Council, the previous weekend.

This issue will only get bigger, with Bob Brown, leader of the Greens planning to visit near the end of the month, and national environment bodies preparing to take it up.

Two excellent websites and contain far more information, contacts etc.
