Choristers besiege the Legislative Assembly while the Libs move on the Fitters’ Workshop

johnboy 7 June 2012 2

As promised the ANU Choral Society (spelt backwards as SCUNA) were protesting in song at the Legislative Assembly this lunchtime.

Meanwhile the Liberals’ Vicki Dunne is seeking to team up with the Greens to force a U-Turn out of the Arts Minister Joy Burch.

“Arts Minister Joy Burch has disregarded the community and the Assemblys’ wishes in refusing to even consider turning the Fitters Workshop into a multi-purpose facility.

“That’s why today I’m moving a motion to direct ACT Labor to implement the recommendations of the Assembly Committee inquiry into the Future Use of the Fitters’ Workshop.

“ACT Labor have shown that they cannot be trusted to make decisions about community assets in the best interests of Canberra and I urge the Assembly to support my call for them to act in the best interests of the community,” Mrs concluded.
