Anti-uranium rally tomorrow

It looks like there are quite a few Magnetic Islanders and Townsville locals heading to the Riverway Arts Centre Amphitheatre tomorrow for a rally to protest the likely mining of uranium at Ben Lomond, 50kms from Townsville.

The event is being organised by the North Queensland Conservation Council (NQCC) who are raising concerns that the mine could pollute Townsville and Magnetic Island's water supply among other factors.

The rally and picnic is planned to start at 4.45pm and run until 5.45pm. The Amphitheatre is at the rear of the Riverway Arts Centre, Village Boulevarde (off Riverway Drive) Thuringowa.

Rallies are being held concurrently in Brisbane and Townsville, and we are hoping for a big show of support so the Newman government gets the anti nuclear message loud and clear.
For those islanders wishing to attend and need a lift, there are a few of us driving out. You will need to be on 3pm ferry, and I can't guarantee being back before the 9pm ferry as most of us are going to the simulcast of Madama Butterfly after. (Free but book with ticketek). if you need transport, call me on 0447032455. Cheers Gail Hamilton
