Book Launch: 'Never Again' by the Beeliar Group

posted in Events on 14 November, 2017

Almost exactly a year after the day that the fences went up around the Roe 8 reserve on Malvolio Road, the Beeliar Group and their community partners are launching their book on the Roe 8 saga: Never Again - Reflections on Environmental Responsibility after Roe 8 by The Beeliar Group (published by UWA Publishing).
 

This book traces the history of Roe 8 and the Perth Freight Link and records the diverse and vigorous resistance to the project. It illuminates what was at stake in the conflict and makes recommendations for action across transport, planning, environmental law, health and Aboriginal heritage policy areas to ensure that Western Australian people and environments never again have such a damaging project thrust upon them.

There is much to reflect on and celebrate and the Group will do so in style, with music and dance, speeches, food and drink at the symbolic heart of Fremantle and site of some key events in the campaign against the Perth Freight Link - the Fremantle Town Hall!

Doors open at 5pm. Book launch at 6pm, followed by entertainment until 10pm.

Food and drink will be available to buy throughout the evening.
 
Copies of the book will be available for purchase at a special rate during the event.
 
Free event; RSVP on Eventbrite.
