Bad business at Mowbray Park

Sunday 23 November 2014

This morning I spoke at a rally at the East Brisbane Croquet Club lawns in Mowbray Park, opposing the appalling plan by the Bris­bane City Council to build two apartment towers in the park.

It looks like the citizens of East Brisbane will have to mobilize again, and stand up for the things they value.
