We watched a 1967 video where women in pumps, dresses and beads, and men, carried babies up Nanny Goat Hill in Wolli Creek to save it from being destroyed. The mayor at the time called them irritants.

Nanny Goat Hill is still here today and is an enjoyable climb. The top offers a great view of the city. We are so fortunate that those Earlwood residents were happy to be irritants, otherwise the hill would have become part of the airport runway.

Mehreen spoke of the loss in Newcastle of part of the railway. Here in Sydney we have to be aware of what the Baird State Government want to do with the Bankstown-Sydneham line.
It sounds good, but the problems are in the detail. Will it run every 4 minutes ALL day? What affect will privatisation have? There won’t be enough seats so how will the elderly and disabled cope? Driverless – jobless. This is not an extra line, the existing line will be out of action for at least a year.

Canterbury Greens will be holding a forum 13th December, 2-4pm, Canterbury Bowling Club, Close St Canterbury.

Canterbury Council held an Interfaith event at Punchbowl Community Centre.

The topic was How Does Faith Empower Women? We had male and female speakers from Christian and Muslim faiths. It was a fascinating discussion and most illuminating. I hope everyone goes to our next Interfaith talk. It will be on spirituality of Aborigines and Buddhists. All the talks emphases the similarities and discuss differences.

What a fascinating discussion. Greek Orthodox Easter and Church of England Easter. Differences and similarities. This was part of Canterbury Council’s Interfaith Committee, which I initiated, activities. The philosophical discussion was excellent.
