Stop the forced removal of elderly residents

    1. Petition by

      David Andrews

      Wulguru, Australia

The most vulnerable people in our society are at risk of becoming homeless through being forcibly removed from their homes at the Monte Carlo Caravan Park. This is through the sale or outsourcing of the property. These residents have been paying for their accommodation for decades and even though the ‘Bligh Government’ promised that their accommodation was secure prior to the previous election; the Newman Government has decided that they will be placed in a tenuous position where potentially they will become homeless.

      Shame on you Campbell Newman. These people have called this place home for many years....it is all that they have and they are surrounded by long term friends. How can you go home to your comfort zone at night and not think of what you have done to these elderly people?

      Newman will be old too one day and hopefully he will be in need like these folk and then patback time will be here. Be human Newman -a bit like blowing in the wind expecting that I suppose.

      Moving a community of elderly people is cruel. they have formed bonds and friendships and help networks. campbell, they are not going to be there forever, you can wait a few more years to redevelop the site.

      The Monte Carlo Caravan Park and the other two government owned caravan parks that Campbell Newman is selling off to his developer mates are home to people who will struggle to pay private rental rents.
