Anti-HuntFest protestors appear to be claiming a victory against the hugely successful outdoor expo, which despite their outrage will once again be held in Narooma next year. According to an article in the Bay Post, a protest staged outside the Eurobodalla Shire Council attracted a mere 55 misguided souls.
The protestors were in attendance to present to Greens Councillor Gabi Harding a petition against HuntFest’s recent application for an amendment to their event licence that will allow the sale and display of firearms and ammunition, as well as the operation of a mobile air rifle range. The protestors claim that the petition contains some 40,000 signatures.
An article by Garry Mallard, OAM, however, reveals that the petition actually contains a vast majority of signatures from people who don’t even live in Australia, but instead come from places as obscure and far afield as Bulgaria, Ethiopia and Pakistan. This being the case, the relevance of the petition is clearly questionable. You can read Garry’s article HERE.
It mut be said, too, that Garry Mallard has been fighting the good fight against these drongoes. You can read his comments at the end of the Bay Post article. Why not jump on to both the abovementioned sites and give him some support?
