Attempts by NSW Govt to stop Coooeee MarchThis story is getting almost no MSM coverage at all. Although I have seen this happen to others it is a shocking indictment on the Australian system of government. Please read Jo Nova’s article on this that I linked to above for more information.
Just in is the news from Steve Truman.
What is happening is people are planning to get to Canberra behind Old Parliament House on Monday at 10.30am to march in support of Peter Spencers protest saying Australia is not a free country any more and we want a royal commission into the injustices concerning the Kyoto protocol & property rights.
Land can now be taken from anyone without Just terms and the fact that Peter Spencer cannot get heard in court despite 200 days attempting to do so is ample evidence the system is not working.
Now we have a NSW state government conspiring to subvert the plans of many people to attend the march by sending out road traffic inspectors to inspect the buses going to the march and thereby either delaying them or putting them off the road altogether. (we are yet to find out what the instructions were precisely)
Steve Truman writes,
I have spoken to COOEE Bus Drive coordinator Bob Jones and he has confirmed that two of the buses that were booked to go - the one from Coffs Harbour and the one from Qirindi have been cancelled due to RTA (Road Transport Authority)harassment.
People who were booked on those buses have now made private travel arrangements and will still be attending the March.
Bob said that he'd received a call from an RTA inspector who was in a motel at Coffs Harbour. Bob was not prepared to release the RTA officers name and number, but he has handed the details on State National party member for Barwon Kevin Humphries who is following the matter up with the minister.
The RTA officer told Bob that 5 inspectors had been dispatched to the North and the West of the state to target the buses heading to Canberra for the COOEE March.
Buses can be held for up to 6 hours in the road side inspection places whilst being assessed for mechanical defects and and driving breaches. It is an outrageous action and as the RTA officer told Bob, they were just following orders from above. Bob told me that Kevin Humphries was also outraged by this and was talking about taking it to the highest possible authorities.
I was under the impression that we lived in a free and democratic country. This is an outrageous Sate Government sponsored attempt to intimidate and disrupt a peaceful demonstration of grass-roots Australian citizens.
If you are not as mad as hell about Peter's situation, than you should be now. It is time for the ordinary citizens of this great country to band together to end this excessive Sate & Federal control of our lives.
