LIVING EARTH FESTIVAL AND STREET PARADE
Please join us in the walking float on Sunday 1st September at council chambers carpark: please arrive 9ish to register. Bring signs with Living Earth theme; what you want to protect or your vision for the future. We are still collecting artworks for KIDZART (grown-up kids too) and will be having a tent at the Community Gardens Festival where you can leave your banner or create one there. Tell the world how passionate you are about our environment and we"d love to get the message out to pollies and maybe in a book.
is an article about Balcome CSG protest, in Sussex UK; a very elite county in south of England. I notice how young the protesters are, the enormous police presence and NO SIGNS!! Maybe we can inspire them with artworks please bring yours to the festival. You can have them back, we"d like to photograph them.
This festival is going to be big! See you there at the Kidzart tent.

MICROWAVE RADIATION IN MULLUMBIMBY
The microwave ante will be upped quite considerably in the near future with proposed microwave towers for NBN and Telstra (a new one has appeared at Mullum Post Office), proposed Wifi hotspot for Mullum, smart metres and the smart grid.
Just google radiation and bees, for instance, and you"ll come across a plethora of information. What"s the effect on humans? Do you sleep well? Ever had tinnitus? What"s the effect of EMR on birds, ants, whales and human blood cells? There are plenty of peer-reviewed papers on the subject which are being ignored by the bottom-liners.
PUBLIC MEETING to raise awareness and explore strategies to address this emerging issue:
TUESDAY 17th September, 6pm
PIONEER HALL, GORDON STREET, MULLUMBIMBY
For further info call 66845385 or 66845384 or go to http://www.mullumwifi.com

PROPOSED NEW CENOTAPH ERECTION IN MULLUMBIMBY
Omg! This is ugly! (my subjective opinion). Please go to http://www.mullumremembers.blogspot.com.au
and have a look at what might be put next to our lovely Civic Centre. It"s big, black and cold cold marble, and there"s even a coffin . . . check out the full proposal at RSL foyer and leave a submission; please leave a submission. The Civic Centre is generally celebratory and the cenotaph next door is for respectful remembrance; currently their co-existence is mellow. However, this enlarged monument will have an overwhelming visual impact on the public precinct which has become central to the Mullum Music Festival. Your say is invited. (Thanks Len for letting us know).

GASFIELD FREE SIGNS Mullumbimby
Thanks Carole Gamble for generous donation. The signs are big metal reflective ones. At the top is "Welcome to Mullumbimby" with the outline of Chicogan around a yellow triangle with 95% in the middle of it and underneath it says "Protected by Community". We will have one at the beginning of Argyle Street and one near the golf course. Costing $800 all up, we welcome donations. I will have a collection bucket at the honey stall at Mullum Farmers Market and at the Kidzart stall at Living Earth Festival. Thanks to Olga for designing the signs and undergoing the myriad consultations.
SAVE OUR REEF
The rally in Brisbane last Sunday was well attended; estimates ranging from one to 4 thousand people. Short vid here: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-08-25/great-barrier-reef-on-protesters-voting-agenda/4911138?section=qld
Its a great feeling to be among thousands of people marching through the CBD, taking up all the roadspace, and chanting in unison "Save our Reef" the words echoing around the edifices in the heart of commerce.
Chow for now
