The South Asia Study Group is hosting its first seminar this year, with acclaimed Human Rights Watch Researcher Jayshree Bajoria, from New Delhi.

The cruise ship terminal and the function centre are completely inappropriate for the high density residential Balmain Peninsula (White Bay).
This location is not the preferred location for the cruise industry.
Future use of the White Bay Foreshores must be guided and protected by a Masterplan, developed with broad community input.
In 2007, NSW State Government promised a new masterplan for White Bay and, in 2009, promised a new masterplan for the Bays Precinct. These have never commenced.
Our foreshores deserve the best planning and we deserve to be heard.
