3AW interview on Morwell Power Station
Please read and listen to interview on 3AW radio re: the recommendation by The Heritage Council of Victoria to heritage list old Morwell Power Station – riddled with friable asbestos and other toxins. Our asbestos sufferers and their families are outraged and distressed that this asbestos filled rotting edifice may more than likely make a heritage list. The distress and constant reminder of this site will have untold damage to those in the community who have lost a loved one to this toxic site. Someone needs to start listening to our people who for decades have been ignored and marginalized – how much more torture does the State government want to put our people through. Common sense about a site like this is needed now. This site should be demolished not cherished.
