Death of Democracy Rally, March 14th 2008 (My birthday, Albert Einsteins as well). At salute is Dr Warrick Raverty who gave a colourful and stinging speech. Dr Raverty was on the Government panel who were assesing the controversial pulp mill, when it became obvious the company couldn't meet the guidelines set by legislation, the legislation was changed, the assesment panel dismissed and a backdoor deal brokered to allow the mill without proper environmental standards. If you're unaware of the background surrounding this process it's worth reading Dr Raverty's speech and this essay by award winning Tasmanian Author Richard Flanagan.
