Treesitter Steffi Leedham takes on WestConnex

Activist Steffie Leedham is sitting on a platform high on a tree in Sydney Park. The platform is connected to two other big trees in the area of the park that has been fenced off for clearing to start building of the #WestConnex tollway and tunnel project's St Peters interchange.

Leedham told Green Left Weekly that she is prepared to stay for "as long as necessary" to save the trees and hold back the Baird NSW Liberal government's $17 billion road and tunnel monstrosity that is WestConnex.
