The people facing the flooding of their communities by the Beattie Government’s mega-dam on the Mary River are certainly not giving up.
There is a rally being held tonight at the Show Pavillion in Gympie from 6.30 pm, which I am going along to.
It sounds obvious, but it is still an important point to make – the most essential part in winning a campaign against bad government decisions is not to give up. Governments rely on making people feel there’s no way they can stop something as a key element in their strategy to overcome opposition.
There’s plenty of arguments against this dam and actions I will take to try to stop it, but in some ways the most important thing is for the people who are in the direct firing line to know they are not fighting the battle alone.
