Mullumbimby residents Rage Against the Cage and The Big Box Brother

Mullumbimby Residents "imprisoned" at Station Street woolworths site.

On Saturday 26th June a group of Mullumbimby residents gathered to express "Rage against the Cage"; a huge cage having been erected by Woolworths, is all along Station Street North. They dressed in black and white and chained themselves to he fence/cage.

This cage is the first step in the construction process of Woolworths' unwanted supermarket in Mullumbimby.

“This cage symbolises our loss of freedom, our loss of choice and our loss of democratic process” said Deborah Lilly, Co-ordinator of the Mullumbimby Community Action Network. She urges small communities throughout Australia to “watch out” as The Big Box Brother has got expansion plans of a new supermarket every 14 days, approximately.

Big Box Brother is Coming to Your Town Soon!!

 “Now, more than ever, we need to cherish our small businesses which are the backbone of our communities. Without diverse unique businesses, we become clone towns, colonised by chain stores” she said.
