STOP THE BULLDOZERS FROM PUSHING OVER THE SYDNEY FOOTBALL STADIUM UNTIL AFTER NSW ELECTION

0 have signed. Let’s get to 75,000!


We the undersigned have previously registered our strong opposition to the demolition and rebuilding of these modern stadiums, as an obscene waste of taxpayers’ money.


We insist that the government must have higher priorities than providing elite money-making sport-businesses which pay no tax with state-of-the-art infrastructure, while so many other things in NSW are crying out for precious government support.

We do not accept the transparent nonsense that this award-winning stadium risks turning into another Hillsborough – which the pro-Stadium forces have only raised when all their other arguments have been demolished.


We reject the notion that will benefit the economy, noting that the best the government’s own number-crunchers can predict is a return of 95 cents on the dollar. We note that neither the Premier, nor any of her  Cabinet Ministers would invest their own money on that predicted return, and ask why then are they investing our money on this folly?


We are now just a fortnight out from the election where the people can decide, in a democratic fashion, whether they accept or reject the government’s arguments.


Under these circumstances, we maintain that to begin the serious demolition now would be outrageous, and they must Stop the Bulldozers, until the people have had their say.
