Hi folks! I’m pleased to announce that after a long hiatus, I’ve had another article published on Independent Australia: “Horse racing kicks sand in the face of Levy’s Beach”.
My home town of Warrnambool has been divided recently over the Council & State Government’s decision to allow 160 commercial racehorses per day to train on a coastal reserve. This beach is one of the few nesting grounds of the endangered hooded plover, among other protected wildlife.
I’ve written about my disgust at Council’s flagrant disregard for the environment, its people and the Traditional Owners of the land. I’d appreciate it if you’d give it a read.
