The event, to be hosted, by the Mayors of Blue Mountains City Council and Wollondilly Shire Council will be held on Sunday 10 November, 9.30am to 11.30am, at Blue Mountains Theatre & Community Hub, Springwood.

Everyone loses if they raise the wall

  • Breaching Native Title Agreements and compromising Native Title
  • Irreversible loss of Aboriginal cultural values
  • Loss of UNESCO World Heritage listing
  • Extinction of threatened plants and animals, such as the Regent Honeyeater
  • Destruction of the last Wild Rivers in NSW
  • Risk to quality of life for residents.

There are alternatives to raising the wall for flood mitigation.
