The procession was community activism at its best—passionate local residents united in creative protest against the Government's polluting toll road. Activists and residents also walked from St Peters and Newtown, coming together to draw attention to the destruction that this road is causing for inner west communities. We were joined by the former Mayor of Leichhardt, Darcy Byrne, and the former Mayor of Marrickville, Sam Iskandar, as well as by other local representatives. I congratulate all those involved in coordinating the lantern procession. I commend them on their hard work in bringing to light the failures of this project.
