We need help to secure the Wetlands!

The Resident’s Association of Hout Bay urgently requires funds to pay legal
costs incurred in our efforts to save the wetland next to the Disa River, the
estuarine and the sea.  We have been successful in getting the City to serve
Directives on the developer and also the Dept of Water Affairs, whom we
have been working closely with through our Attorneys. None of this would
have been possible without legal action. Attached is the latest article by
Environmental Journalist John Yeld (Argus 16 June 2011) in this saga.

The Chairman, himself spent 2 and a 1/2 days in the High Court, 31st March,
1 April 2011, fighting this issue to save the wetlands and to stop the
bulldozers. This action opened up the cracks in the developer’s defense and
led to the determined onslaught and pressure brought to bear against the
developer. All this could not have been achieved without legal opinion and
actions by our Attorneys. We now have to pay them and your contribution
will be invaluable, so please join the force to stop wetlands from being
concretised, now and in the future.

We currently have an account from our Attorneys of R70 000 to pay.  We
urgently appeal to all members who have not yet paid their subs for 2011 to
do so ASAP.  We especially appeal further for any donations that you may
be willing to make.
