The Barnett government in Western Australia is beginning its destructive work in the Beeliar Wetlands in Perth, for the Roe 8 extension -- building a further section of the Roe Highway as part of the planned Perth Freight Link.
First came the fences and the trapping of wildlife -- in intense heat (see the Canberra Times about this) and now the machines.
Today there has been a heavy police presence at the protest camp (protectors' camp) on Malvolio Road in Coolbellup.
You can find out more about the struggle to stop this environmental disaster at Rethink the Link, and at Save Beeliar Wetlands.
If you are in Perth, you can call by and add your presence and support to the protest camp, or you can follow their news online.
