Rattle & hum
NSW Greens MP Lee Rhiannon has also issued a press release demanding a retraction of Anita Quigley's opinion piece. More updates and news as I either get time/receive them.
Chain gang chokes city
A biased divisive piece that does nothing to inform the public, as usual the Daily Telegraph is pushing a "us vs them" debate that is totally obsolete.
In case this information has slipped by the DT researchers, Critical Mass has been a worldwide social movement for over 14 years. Try using Google, just like everyone else is capable of!
As for the "selfish" tag, try removing your blinkers for a moment and consider these points.
Who creates Sydney traffic gridlock on a daily basis?
Who is the most overrepresented group in road user injuries and deaths?
Then ponder this: two weeks ago it was reported that "THREE times as many people die of air pollution in New South Wales than in traffic accidents".
Who creates that? Surely not a relatively tiny road user group such as pedestrains or cyclists.
Sydney is literally breaking apart under the pressure of it's traffic problems and lazy articles such as this are only acting as a petty diversion away from the real issues.
Printing a individuals phone number is extremely spiteful and pointless.
Why not surely print the phone numbers and postal addresses of the lazy incompentent penpushers in the RTA, who's inaction have caused Sydneys ongoing traffic gridlock and pollution?
Australian society has recently experienced a "tipping point" in public consciousness towards global warming, water use, transport opinions etc.
There's a state election in NSW in 2007, the Daily Telegraph should be pushing for ANSWERS to Sydneys transport crisis, not shifting the blame out of all proportion onto a relatively tiny road user group.
