I’ll soon take a few more pics for this series. Today, however, I draw attention to this story inThe Illawarra Mercury.

City Diggers RSL [sic*] Club general manager Phil Ryan wrote to the Mercury in response to comments made by independent councillor Vicki Curran, in which she criticised Wollongong City Council’s plans to encourage people congregating in Crown Street Mall to meet at nearby Wesley Church.

The plan, designed by a working group of the council, police, security, methadone and health clinics, Wesley Church and GPT, began a six-month trial on August 4…

Disagreeing with Cr Curran’s views that this represented an attempt at “gentrification” and the “marginalisation of our poor”, Mr Ryan was scathing in his assessment of those engaging in antisocial behaviour in the mall.
