SOUTH STRADDIE ULTIMATE SESSIONS - SAVE OUR SPIT ACT NOW! Sunday, 9 September 2012
The world famous break at South Straddie (TOS) on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia is right now facing its biggest threat ever, with a real chance it could be destroyed forever. The now imminent construction of a proposed monster cruise ship terminal will foul the water beyond repair and the massive amount of constant dredging will destroy this place forever.
This drastic land-grab by the private sector and local council will also bring with it the loss of wavebreak island, the loss and fouling of a pristine aquatic habitat for over 450 marine species, a multi million dollar diving industry wiped out and severe public access restrictions for the entire area - all in all it is a fast tracked scheme to claim land that belongs to all of us before we can get a chance to stop it.
The mainstream media, local council and state government are trying hard to drop a thick blanket over any opposition to their plans in an attempt to appear that they have public support. This IS state controlled CROWN LAND that the council has no authority over. These changes would be irreversible and would render this amazing and unique area a marine wasteland, wiping out multiple multi-million dollar industries and our best free, open, public spaces.
