Eviction Rockshow Video

By slaxwarez - 2 June 2008 19

I noticed on the Canberra vote’s website that the eviction did not go all that well for Barr. It looks like it was a bit of a rockshow at that end of the night. The Canbbera Times was wrong when they said the fence went up on Saturday. I wonder how much this all is going to cost us in the end. Did anybody go there for the eviction?

Canberra Votes has the video of the Cottage Open day here.

What’s Your opinion?

I still think a short term tenancy, to be renewed until Molonglo is ready and the govt is actually ready to use the bldg as a community resource would have been better. and wouldn’t have sent people up in arms.

Now this community resource is a drain on the community, as we pay for fencing and guards.

The reason the eviction was on Saturday was because it was the last day of the month. ACTPLA did the official handover of the ownership of the property over to TAMS. It’s like that with every other property handover.

As for why they couldn’t just stay in there, it’s a government owned building, TAMS has to abide by its property guidelines. It was decided by the powers that be that it become a community resource so the site needed to be processed as such. If one group of people got special treatment then everybody else would be up in arms about double standards and it’s an abuse of government power and blah blah blah… damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

They’ve had plenty of time to organise a new place to live so it isn’t like they’ve been pulled out of their beds in the middle of the night and thrown on the streets, which is how the bleeding hearts certainly make it seem.

They had permission dating from before self-govt. They sought a lease but none was forthcoming. This decision to evict is more Stanhope govt arrogance. Can’t wait for Oct to wield my vote and evict THEM!

Norvan – keep posting and hang around. Despite the BS, there are some moderately intelligent views expressed here from time to time (just not by me).
