This poignant video shows Acland on Anzac Day this year... the town no longer operational. If thats not sobering... bear a thought for the great many towns in this region and beyond facing the same demise! And the land, farms and natural habitat, the water tables and riverways.
I'm going up the road soon for this exhibition of Nicki Law's textile art. She's been told her farm is at risk... and so it is a very close to home story for her. In 2011 being a guardian for biodiversity has become extremely personal for many... people who were once at loggerheads are now joining forces as the fight grows louder between those wanting guardianship on land and water use and Govt allocations to Big Industry.
