Divert Allianz Stadium funding to rehabilitating the Darling River

Divert Allianz Stadium funding to rehabilitating the Darling River

Dear Premier,

I'm asking you and the NSW Government to get your priorities straight. Please divert funding from the redevelopment of Allianz Stadium towards the Darling River and the people who are suffering as a result of this catastrophe.

I'm prepared to sacrifice the new stadium for our environment, and I hope you are too!

Why is this important?

Our choices reflect who we are.

Can we really be prioritising building a new football stadium when this rural community is suffering such a great loss?

We need to put people and our environment first, instead of blindly pursuing economic growth until it takes us over a cliff. This ecological disaster has many causes but the Royal Commission report into the management of the Murray Darling has said our politicians are more concerned with "politics rather than science".

By ignoring the catastrophic risks of climate change and putting profit before people, one million fish have washed up in the rivers. We cannot allow this to happen again!

The football stadium redevelopments have been pushed through and have little public support. I would imagine they have no support in the bush.

I believe in saving our ecosystems. Join with me as we demand that the Premier and the NSW Government get their priorities straight. Fish over football stadiums!

How it will be delivered

We will deliver the petition to the NSW Government.

New South Wales, Australia
