What stopped the EW Tunnel?

When it is people vs roads, it’s rare that people win.

Despite the signed contracts, federal funding committed and homes acquired the East-West Tunnel project has been stopped! (For now at least).

But what stopped it? We’ll take a look at the community campaign strategies and tactics that enabled this historic win.

Featuring Cait Jones from Public Transport Not Traffic, Georgia Webster (former community campaigner for Adam Bandt MP), and others involved in this broad campaign – get in touch if you have perspectives you want to share on the night.

Join us afterwards for dinner and drinks at Shebeen, 36 Manchester Lane.
