Store kiss-in is lazy activism

The Argus: argus button

Let's tackle Ebola

The Argus:

1:00pm Thursday 16th October 2014

The outbreak of Ebola in West Africa and the lamentably tardy response of the ‘civilised’ world, brings to mind the oft quoted cleric, Martin Niemoller, who wrote this after he lamented that the church, and he himself, did not speak out against the Nazis: “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-because I was not a Socialist.

Our city’s development should be decided by our communities and representatives who understand the local need for a balance between land for housing, jobs, and open spaces.
