Reclaim Tecoma from McDonald's

7 November 2012

Facebook : No Maccas in the Hills

Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) has shown contempt for community opposition and local democracy by approving a new McDonald's in Tecoma in the Dandenong Ranges (Victoria, Australia). The Hills people showed McDonald's that it is the community who controls our public spaces not the corporation with the deepest pockets! On October 14, hundreds of people came together set up a new 'community garden' in Tecoma on the site. The Community brought plants, placards, gardening tools and a fighting spirit. It is time to take back their community - the fight has only just began.
