Planning Brunswick's future

State election candidates Trent Hawkins (Socialist Alliance), Cyndi Dawes (Greens), Jane Garrett ( Labour) will speak at the public forum to discuss the issue of planning in Brunswick. Should there be height limits ? Does the community have enough say ? Will traffic choke our suburb ? Organised by Local Residents' Network.

Clarrie Wohlers Centre, Fleming Park, 51 Albert Street, East Brunswick

Public meeting :Our forests, your pollution

Two climate justice activists from Friends of the Earth Indonesia are joined by Muliadi from Central Kalimantan to discuss Australia's plans for forest offsets in Indonesia. It is not well known that both major parties in Australia rely on using offsets across the whole economy to deal with climate change. The Australian government's "carbon sink" project in Central Kalimantan has affected the peatlands of the area and the livelihoods of local communities.
