After more than 10 years campaigning to save Bastion Point, it will be a sad moment when the beginning of the destruction of Bastion Point starts at 7am on Monday 11 November.
However, Friends of Mallacoota will be continuing their opposition to this outrageous development. They will be rallying at the site and continue to do what they can to impede works. Individuals are encouraged to join in peaceful action against this development.
FoM intend to have a continual presence near the site – if you are able to take part in this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
