An Open Letter to the Patriotic Leaders of Australia.
The defence department want to sell the explosives factory site in Maribyrnong, 127.7 hectares of unused land with great historic value. It was the only bullet factory in Australia in World War One.
I want this land to retain all of its precious military heritage and become a much greener place with much more trees.
When I wanted to discuss this and other ideas with the ALP in Maribyrnong I was told that my proposals were harassment. When I objected to this description of my lobbying, I was arrested by the police.
I now believe it is impossible for the Australian Labor party to respect me and my ideas.
Their police state tactics against me lead me to say that they are unfit to govern in a democracy.
But Australia has other better leaders and people’s representatives than those offered by the Australian Labor Party in Maribyrnong.
So here is my dream:
Instead of selling that magnificent peninsula of land, we must consider preserving it as a place where the military heritage and the natural environment can be enjoyed by Australians and international visitors for generations to come.
A national park. More open space freely available for all the people.
I have seen Eagles flying in this place. In inner Melbourne.
The land is said to have contaminated soil.
Would planting the right trees be the best way to get Mother Nature to help us clean up this contamination?
Lets build elevated walkways so that visitors can enjoy the natural beauty and historic heritage without being exposed to the contamination.
Who is willing to help me explore ways of making this dream real?
