Well done to all who attended both on the water and landbased 8) :clap: :clap: :clap: :applause: :applause: . Unity like this has to help us fight off the feral elements who seek nothing but total control over people.

Imagine about 160 boats on trailers driving through the city......

That's a great turn out. Pictures are impressive. Well done to all involved

Fisherman protests can have an affect. In 1996 5000 of us rallied outside Parlament house to get the scallop dredgers banned from PPB which had become a barron wasteland. Kennett listened..... 15 years down the track the Bay is now is an extraordinary fishery,hard to believe actually.
