For the last ten years the Jade Monkey, in Twin Street, Adelaide, has provided musicians, artists and art-lovers alike the opportunity to get together and enjoy live music. There have been dozens of Adelaide bands who have played at this venue and its ambience and history provide the perfect atmosphere for a real music experience. But now the Adelaide City Council has provided a new Hotel the permission to ban gigs and celebratory events at the Jade Monkey. We need to make a stand and stop such urban gentrification happening. These sort of actions only serve to weaken the overall artistic culture of Adelaide.

Please sign this petition to show support for the local Adelaide music scene and save The Jade Monkey.

      its part of the city's heritage, so much has already been lost forever.

      I hope to come home to Adelaide to live in the future. At present I live in the Hunter Valley NSW, an area rich with convict and early settler history. Adelaide does not have the wealth of history other parts of Australia have and therefore needs to hold on tight to their historical gems. The first Arrnot's bakery in Morpeth NSW is nothing but a pile of bricks and it is being cared for and protected. To tear down this whole building just to make it easier for a hotel to be built next door is disgusting. The fact that the building is occupied and enjoyed by South Australians at present makes the plans to tear it down all the more offensive.

      Older buildings should be retained at all cost. Our history is precious.
