|I love buying local|
Mullumbimby Action Campaign against Woolworths goes Nationalwww.erskinevillage.org who say they are "with us".... check out their website for similar campaign. The national networking has begun! Very briefly, Channel 7 arrived today for a two-day leisurely filming--noon
through Friday 3pm. At noon they interviewed Paul, at Edens Landing, and a
few people around town, then took a break. They were to meet Chris Abraham
at 2pm outside Council Chambers. They phoned me at 2 to say they would be 15
minutes late, I said no worries, a small group was just gathering. A few
minutes later, a van pulls up and out come three film crew from Channel 9.
They arrived in time to scoop the story.
They had interviewed several people before Channel 7 arrived. Including
Chris (scheduled to talk with Ch 7) and our totally cool and unflustered
Deborah who had just returned from ³the bush² yesterday, knowing nothing of
what had been going on. The Channel 7 team were clearly shocked, and we now
had two TV crews and a gathering of about 20 people. All a little confused
as to what was happening. To cut a long story short, the Channel 9 team had
flown in on a helicopter at remarkably short notice. An anonymous person had
called the station to tell them Channel 7 was here. Just as they had flown
in on a helicopter, they would fly out on a helicopter and their show would
air at 7pm tonight.
The Channel 7 crew told me they had to leave immediately to get what they
had aired tonight because tomorrow it would be old news--consequently and so
regretfully Helena and Judy and the street scene and the gathering at Lulu¹s
will not happen--tomorrow anyway.
