Aunty Di gives everyone welcome to country although not Darkinjung still the sentiment was there to make us feel comfortable in the Darkinjung lands.
So although raining and cold those willing to make an effort for various reasons to stop this LNP Abbott led government or to just voice their discontent came out on the Central Coast today to march and do their own little bit.
These guys 71 and 81 years old stating they have never seen or experienced such bad and incompetant government in Australia as this LNP Abbott led mob right now. Their Words and further one of these blokes father is 100 yrs old and been a Liberal voter all his life but stating to his 71 year old son when leaving for the march that he will no longer vote Liberal and that he feels betrayed.
The rain didn’t let up but the people with real concerns about Tafe sell off, Power sell off, NSW and National assets sell off to big business also didn’t let up.
The rain couldn’t stop them or blunt their genuine concerns about the way these LNP governments are doing whatever they want without consideration for the constituents of the relative states or the nation it’s real economy and or the environmental consequences of their phony sell out of the Australian people.
Whilst the March was in progress from West Gosford to the staging area over the bridge there was great support from motorists honking and greetings loudly emanating from many passing vehicles.
Quite a few speakers told us of secret deals and consultants reporting on the ABC one in particular mentioning a former 7 financial executive paid by the government to do a report on the ABC to enable LNP to justify their lies about no cuts to the ABC or SBS and their viscous public and media attacks and claims of political bias.
I believe these methods are leading to the LNP making the ABC and SBS redundant or selling them off all or in part to Murdoch’s media empire.
All in all an enjoyable gathering, peacful and with many views being shared none of which were in any way supportive of anything this Abbott led coalition government is trying to do to us or our country and all which bring promise and hope that this almost fascist government will be thrown out of office very soon.
