Motorists leaving central city for home along busy Parramatta Road were recently greeted by a blunt but accurate description of the Hawke government's planned "resource security" legislation. The banner was hung by "Enviro-Cops", whose spokesperson said the group was trying to heighten awareness of the issue among Glebe residents and Sydney University students.

He added, "If both state and federal governments have their way, public forests will be privatised. This amounts to handing over wilderness areas to multinationals."
