Inner West whispers Local gossip, rumour, hearsay and unsubstantiated fact... Satire for the soul Left without a SCA – Albo is Gough – Tsirekas apprehended l In the aftermath of the announcement that UNSW and University of Sydney have agreed to merge Sydney College of the Arts with UNSW’s Art and Design department, local art students have been getting creative. Students organised a Save SCA campaign stall at Rozelle Collectors Markets last week and rallied outside the University of Sydney’s Senate meeting on Monday, with a Trojan-esque paper unicorn in tow. l Election results in Grayndler came as a surprise to those expecting the Green’s Jim Casey to give Albo a run for his money. The results show that youthful Liberal David Van Gogh slipped in second on 23.36%, without so much as a media officer (as far as we could tell). The Greens got 21.94% of the vote, much the same as last election. (The seats of Reid and Sydney also saw little to no change in the percentage of people voting Green). Instead, a plethora of micro-party candidates in Grayndler experienced swings in their favour. Maybe the Greens need to refine their tactics if they are to replicate their Melbourne success in inner city gentrified seats like Grayndler. l Labor campaigners, including former Mayor Angelo Tsirekas’ campaign manager Andrew Lillicrapp, have said a ‘WeChat firestorm’ harmed their results. WeChat is a social media app created in China, which rolls the functions of Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and payment apps into one. It’s used by an estimated one million people based permanently or temporarily in Australia. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, supporters of the Christian Democratic Party used the app to target voters in key seats with scare messages warning against Labor’s support of the Safer Schools Program and same-sex marriage reform. Labor apparently didn’t really expect to win Reid back, but Angelo Tsirekas’ supporters have said his political efforts are far from over. LOCAL history Yurulbin Point in Birchgrove was known as Long Nose Point until it was restored to its original name in 1994. It’s on the lands of the Wangal clan; the sandstone overhangs lining the foreshore are believed to have been used as shelter by its original custodians. A sandstone cave, situated on private land, is the location of one of only a few Aboriginal art sites in the Leichhardt LGA. Its walls bear two hands stencilled in red ochre. The Metropolitan Aboriginal Land Council has indicated the site may be of moderate to high archeological significance. This 18th century map records both the settler colonial and Indigenous names of the point. Map courtesy of City of Sydney Archives Acknowledging Birchgrove’s traditional owners Righteous Rightie demands that the lower orders stop their incessant whingeing and electoral troublemaking immediately Dear RR - What happened to the Howard Battlers? Those salt of the earth, mainstream Australians who were perfectly happy to have their jobs shipped overseas, a regressive GST slapped on their purchases, and their children sent to die in some misconceived Middle Eastern adventure just so long as the pillow biters were prevented from entering into holy matrimony and swarthy reffos were stopped from entering our territorial waters? Australia now seems to ungovernable due to the working class – which seems to do precious little actual work nowadays – arcing up about globalisation and neoliberalism. Well, I don’t remember many complaints back in the mining-boom days back when they were buying XXXL tracky daks made by nimble-fingered Vietnamese kiddies for $5 a pop. Or sitting down to watch their 5000inch flat screen assembled in a dark satanic TV mill in Guangzhou. Or necking 20 Bitangs on a Jetstar flight during an end-of-season footy trip to Kuta. Oh no, open borders and free markets were just dandy back then. Now, just because they’ve seen the neighbourhoods they grew up in rendered unrecognisable by Johnny Foreigner immigrants, have to travel a few hours each way to undertake poorly paid, insecure work in the service sector, and have been asked to cop some of the health expenses that are an inevitable outcome of a diet consisting of KFC megapacks and double Jim Beams and Coke, blue collar Tories in the aspirational outer Western Suburbs have turned like mongrel dogs on the party of their idol John Howard! Malcolm, Point Piper RR replies: Indeed! If there is anything to be learnt from the recent election debacle it’s that the simple folk don’t respond to a bunch of egghead guff about agility, innovation and excitement. The next Liberal leader must demonstrate the political smarts to focus exclusively on terrifying Australians about the prospect of having to live next to and/or be blown up by a wild-eyed Islamofascist. n Email your dilemma to info@ciaomagazine.com.au.

n PROMOTION Haberfield Chiropractic When we think of injuries, we often associate it with an immediate pain, which we can then treat. This, however, is not the case with all injuries, and it is often those that are not immediately identifiable that pose the greatest threat. Back pain and injuries often fall into this category. Chiropractor John Kyneur, from Haberfield Chiropractic, knows all about these risks having worked in the industry for over 30 years. According to John, back pain can build up over a number of years, or may even be the result of an injury from years ago, so long ago, that you may have forgotten it ever happened. It is for this reason that John feels it is especially important to keep on top of your back pain with regular check-ups and advice from your chiropractor. Attempting to work with the body’s own ability to heal itself, chiropractors don’t use drugs and often use a number of various techniques to achieve this goal. John himself uses two of the gentler methods of chiropractic, Sacro-Occipital Technique and Upper-Cervical procedure, which rely on a combination of the patients body weight, chiropractic blocks, instrumentation, body positioning and leverage methods instead of manual force. With many people putting off their first appointment based on the fear that it will be painful, John says it is important that the public knows there a number of non-intrusive techniques available and to consult with your chiropractor regarding what methods they use. Ultimately for John, when treating clients it comes down to the three ‘P’s’: to reduce pain, improve posture and activate performance. Despite this, he also notes that each individual has extremely specific health care requirements, and he uses a postural assessment and spinal check to map these needs out before treatment begins. With so much of your health dependent on your spine, it seems silly to allow pain to go ignored. Even if it is not immediately debilitating. Even what we think of as the most basic ailments, such as headaches, can be a sign of deeper, spinal injury. Luckily, John says despite working in the field for over three decades, he is still amazed at the natural ability of a person to recover from illness and injury. An appointment with a chiropractor just might be the first step to your improved health. n Haberfield Chiropractic: 23 Great North Road, Five Dock. Ph: 9799 9995 Are You: • Tired of having pain in your body? • Sitting for long periods, which is making you feel stiff & sore? • Wanting to be more active?

If you need any fashion hints or tips be sure to make the trip out to Paddington’s Red Thread store for some personalised advice on recycled fashion! n @buddleandsqueak buddleandsqueak.blogspot.com.au It is not surprising that every year, four in every 16 young Aussies experience a mental health issue. But three of those four people won’t get the help they need. There are many reasons why, but stigma plays a major role. Not seeking help can have negative effects like making it harder to finish study, get a job and maintain friendships. We are fortunate to have federal and state funded youth mental health services that provide the support necessary to help young people and their families through tough times. I advocate for improved awareness in terms of how we communicate and characterise mental health day to day. Self-education, improving mental health literacy and addressing ‘The Big Stigma’ in our dealings with each other have a deep impact, especially in reducing the internalisation of the Boomalli Music Event negative connotations regarding mental health.

Held in their Flood Street Leichhardt gallery, works from Boomalli’s current exhibition, 'How We See Country', will surround the audience, taking the atmosphere to another level and allowing visitors to enjoy the music while also viewing this must-see collection.

Camelot Lounge, $15 Our Kind Of Traitor: Another tense cat and mouse game for fans of John le Carré Our Kind Of Traitor The Russians may have changed from commies to brutal mobsters, but they’re still worming their way into the heart of British politics, according to Susanna White’s drum-tight adaptation of John le Carré’s 2010 novel. Ewan McGregor plays the patsy here – a honourable man way out of his depth. He’s Perry, a professor of poetry holidaying in Morocco with his stand-offish wife Gail (Naomie Harris). He’s slept with a student (a job hazard for poetry teachers?), so no nookie for Perry... Which leads him to a party with cocaine and girls, and into the clutches of a flamboyant Russian money launderer, Dima (Stellan Skarsgård). Dima’s anxious to defect to Britain with information MI6 will find useful, he says, and Perry recklessly agrees to help. Homeland’s Damian Lewis slyly plays the facilitating agent, and before long Perry and Gail are neck high in intelligence game slime. It quickly turns into a gripping slow boil thriller that won’t disappoint le Carre’s legions of fans. MA15+ from July 14. n Thanks to StudioCanal we have five double in-season passes to give away.

He’s washed up on a beach with a suicidal castaway (Paul Dano), who discovers all sorts of uses for natural gas. Also useful is the dead man’s boner that doubles as a compass. Intended as an absurdist rift on masculinity and social conditioning – actually it’s just bonkers. And a warning: contains images of Harry Potter's bare bottom. M from July 14. Phew!

The festival will be held at Cathy Freeman Park at Sydney Olympic Park, from 11am to 7pm, with organisers recommending a quick walk across the road to catch the Giants v Collingwood match, but we won't judge you if you decide to camp out on a bean bag with some festival snacks and give the game a miss. n Saturday July 9th, 11am-7pm July is the month to release your inner blonde and get along to the coolest cinema around. Here's two of the best: ★ Land Of Mine. In Denmark just after the Allied victory a group of German POWs (kids really) are forced to clear beaches of the mines their occupying army planted. If they survive, they can go home. Martin Zandvilet’s powerfully tense drama has won a whole swag of festival awards already, and gets its message across without preaching or taking sides. Yes it’s getting a general release later – of course it is! Go now before everyone starts raving about it. ★ Sparrows. Is there anywhere cooler then Iceland? Sure its cold, but this tiny country is not only the number one spot for holidaying hipsters right now, but also continually manages to pump out an impressive wave of exceptional new-wave cinema. And Rúnar Rúnarsson's coming-of-age drama, set in a small west coast town is as fresh, exotic and stunning as its magnificently scenic backdrop. n Bookings and info: scandinavianfilmfestival.com July 5 – July 27 at Palace Cinemas. WIN DVDS Smile for the camera, Inspector... Hinterland Series 2 Move over Nordic Noir, the Welsh do it better! All of that darkly popular genre’s elements are here – steely pale blue skies, chilly bleak countryside, slowburn suspense and a darkly brooding detective who makes Kurt Wallander look cheerful. And as the Guardian wryly noted, “he even drives a Volvo.” The first critically acclaimed BBC series left DCI Mathias (Richard Harrington), the emotionally tortured cop reluctantly posted to remote Aberystwyth, in deep trouble but its bloody cliff-hanger ending guaranteed he’d be back. Now with a local woman’s death on his conscience and his future hanging in the balance, Mathias is persuaded to return and work on a case of an arson attack on a farm that leaves a mother and child fighting for their lives. There are five compelling feature-length episodes in this series. Maybe this time we’ll get to see the poor guy smile?

Viva Voice Created by voice and dialect coach, Amy Hume, Viva Voice strives to strengthen and develop the voices of people from all walks of life, so everyone who passes through their doors can communicate “with living voice”. Ciao spoke with the mastermind of it all, to find out what the company is all about... Tell us the story behind Viva Voice Studio? I established Viva Voice, after returning from working in New York as a voice and dialect coach for actors. I sought to establish a business in Sydney that offered voice and communication training beyond the realm of theatre. My work in the arts industry (Matilda the Musical, NIDA, ATYP) is at the core of the business. Drama classes for school-aged children were the starting point for Viva Voice when the business opened in 2014. Since that time, Viva Voice has grown into a leading provider of voice, communication and presentation training. The drama program is now only one part of the business and allows Viva Voice to deliver specialised classes for school-aged children and young performers. Who can benefit from voice training? Anyone who uses their voice. Our practical and creative training allows people of any age to develop an ability to verbally express their thoughts with clarity and ease, so that their ideas and knowledge are heard with confidence and trust. All training explores physical and vocal presence, introduces strategies for overcoming nerves, and develops the authentic voice and communication style of each client. Viva Voice has worked with professionals from industries including health, law, education, hospitality, finance, tourism, media and the arts. What kinds of classes and workshops do you offer? Private coaching, group classes and full-day workshops. We run classes at the studio and deliver a lot of training in-house for various organisations and corporations. We also deliver workshops and presentations to high school students, to inspire them to speak with clarity, resonance and confidence. School-aged children can participate in weekly drama classes and holiday workshops. What sets you apart from other businesses in your field? At the core of our business are highly-skilled, self-motivated and inspiring young women who are committed to the learning outcomes of their clients. We are dedicated to providing people from all industries with the opportunity to change their world with inspired speaking. The training we provide is rooted in our ongoing work in the arts industry and comes directly from working with actors. This level of experience and expertise is not evident in other businesses offering communication training. n Viva Voice: 282 Great N Rd, Wareemba T: 8040 1902 W: vivavoicestudio.com Amy Hume with her clients at Viva Voice Delivering voice, communication and presentation coaching Viva Voice, 282 Great North Rd, Wareemba Phone: (02) 8040 1902 www.vivavoicestudio.com It’s your community It’s your choice REGISTER YOUR INTEREST AS A COMMUNITY GROUP FOR YOUR CHANCE TO RECEIVE A $200 DONATION!

n PROMOTION ROZELLE COLLECTORS MARKET Annika’s Finds Annika searched through the Rozelle Collectors Markets to find these vibrant treasures; the perfect feature pieces to liven up your winter wardrobe. Check out these stalls for some other great finds. They update their offerings each week, so there’ll always be something new to catch your eye! Embroidered white Cardigan - $20 Found at stall: Mint Condition Fuscia Pink skirt with red trimming - $20 Found at stall: Eva’s Vintage Meet homemaking queen: Little Pine Needle July is the month of pre-loved, reused and up-cycled fashion at Rozelle Collectors Market. Vintage Month at Rozelle Collectors Markets is promising veritable bucket loads of nostalgia, funk and fun every weekend throughout July. Apart from the opportunity to nab some groovy retro pieces and cute homemade fashions, Rozelle Collectors Markets is hosting a series of vintage themed events on the weekends throughout July, including a Vintage Fashion Parade on Saturday July 23rd, 11am. Our cover girl for this edition, Annika Victoria, is just one of the vibrant personalities that will be out and about during the markets’ Vintage Month. Through her growing social media presence Annika advocates for the ethical consumption of fashion and body positivity, while teaching other fashionistas how to make their own clothes. Annika Victoria has over 400,000 subscribers on Youtube and 27,000 followers on Instagram. As a science student living with a chronic illness, Annika Victoria (aka @littlepineneedle) is not your regular social media mogul. Inner West blogger turned YouTuber, Annika Victoria has gained a significant online following sharing DIY sewing projects with her fans. Shortly after Annika began her journey as a blogger she was diagnosed with a rare chronic vasculitis disease called Takayasu’s Arteritis. “At that point, the online world became my place of escape from the horrible physical symptoms, constant specialists appointments and scariness of receiving a life-changing diagnosis,” Annika says. Annika’s social media outlets served not only to find peace within herself but also benefit others. “Even though I simply run a Youtube channel that teaches people to sew their own clothes I also aim to teach people that their size or body shape shouldn’t matter, anyone should be able to wear whatever they want! I also want to raise awareness of people living with disabilities and invisible illnesses. We are normal people who are still able to live full and interesting lives,” Annika explains. Following the 2013 Bangladesh sweatshop tragedy, Annika made the pledge to shop responsibly. “It made me realise just how many people in the world work in poor conditions, for minimal pay, in order to make cheap clothing available to countries like Australia. I also realised that I was part of the problem, because I was promoting “fast fashion” on my fashion blog. “I have committed to buying mostly secondhand and vintage items, or making things myself and I now only ever promote small handmade designers and ethical, sustainable fashion stores,” says Annika. Annika enjoys the thrill of thrift shopping at Rozelle Collectors Markets, “you never know what you’re going to find and it’s exciting! I love that the pieces I buy have a history to them. I dress to stand out, if you wear vintage you are less likely to come across somebody wearing the same thing,” says Annika. “Rozelle Collectors Market has a really relaxed atmosphere, you can spend the day browsing through antiques, cute clothes and eating good food! A trip to the markets definitely fits in with my philosophy of ‘be kind to yourself ’.” STALL HOLDERS ON SHOW Eva’s Vintage Mother and daughter duo Eva and Jessica sell a combination of vintage stock as well as designer secondhand pieces.

in the kitchen n withOliviaMackay, www.scoffandquaff. wordpress.com Rice, feta and zucchini pie I often make this pie (or a version of it) to turn leftover rice into a delicious and thrifty meal. It’s perfect for using up the dregs from a dinner party too: lovely additions include bits of caramelised onion from the roasting pan, the last shreds of roast chicken left on the bone, or that lonely bit of cheddar languishing on the cheeseboard. As with most things in life, the cheesier the better. NB: A word to the wise - very few people realise that leftover rice needs to be treated with care. If you’re not going to eat rice straight after you’ve cooked it, then you need to store it in the fridge as soon as possible. Any uneaten rice should be thrown out after 48 hours in the fridge. Method 1. Preheat oven to 200°C. 2. Grease a 20cm non-stick round cake tin or a 12-cup muffin tray. 3. Combine the rice, cheeses, green onions, mint and eggs in a large bowl and mix well. Season to taste. Ingredients • 2 cups cooked rice • 2 small zucchini • 150g feta cheese, crumbled • 50g Parmesan cheese, grated Up-cycle your rice and veggies • 4 spring onions, finely sliced • 2 tbsp fresh mint and/or parsley, finely chopped • 4 eggs, lightly beaten 4. Use a vegetable peeler to slice the zucchini into long, thin strips. Drizzle with olive oil and fry until just cooked and soft. (If your zucchini is already cooked, skip this step.) 5. Stir into the rice mixture then press into the greased tin. 6. Bake for 25 minutes (or 15 minutes if using a muffin tray), until lightly golden and set in the centre. 7. Serve immediately. MARKET UPDATE n Fruit: Oranges are affordable and plentiful at $1-$4 per kilo, as are all types of apples, $2-$6 per kilo. Mandarins are ripe and sweet, on special at Trim’s Fresh Leichhardt for $1.50 per kilo. Cherries from America are fetching $15-$25 per kilo. n Veggies: The cold snap last week has temporarily hiked up the price of some produce, like broccoli, which is $5-$7 per kilo. Leafy greens are a thrifty buy with asian greens at $1.50-$2.50 a bunch, silverbeet $2.5-$3.00 a bunch and kale $2-$3 a bunch. Thanks to Tony Trim of Trim’s Fresh Leichhardt.

Music and social justice are inextricably linked for me. I was the first female member of the Brisbane chapter of the US civil rights movement, the Black Panther Party. What do you like to cook at home? I try to eat like my ancestors did. I eat salads, protein, no lashings of anything that would have flour and sugar in it. I just love a good old lamb roast with lots of garlic and roast veggies.

However, over the specifically to Aboriginal and Blackfella Bush Curry & Rice d years I have found my natural voice for this is in my art. Whether it’s concerned with aboriginal women’s incarceration rate, which is the highest in the world per capita, or violence, people listen to you. I see it as a positive vehicle to bring Torres Strait Islander women to feel good, strong and to dance to. What artists make you feel this?

Add the corned beef and Are there any foods that bring back particularly good memories for you? Food for me was spare as we grew up poverty stricken. Flour and sugar was introduced into the Aboriginal diet as wages and we grew up on it. I’ve actually had to try and shake the effects of this refined flour and sugar off, as in Archie Roach’s ‘Mission Ration Blues’ which points out the detrimental impact that flour, tea and sugar has had on my people’s health. I’m only one generation away from my ancestor’s healthy way of life but this is why we’re dying like flies from diabetes and heart disease. Our mortality rate is above per abilities to express what I feel as an aboriginal women, for myself and my sisters of this country. Are there any musicians that you hope to see performing at Sydney venues in the future? I’d like to see Vic Sims. Good musicians are a dime a dozen but there are some great musicians who have been overlooked and neglected despite their commitment to music. Vic Sims is one of the finest. n Marlene Cummins and the Blues Experience Band are performing at Venue 505, July 15th.

It is made by a Langhorne Creek winery that always offers terrific bang for your buck and is a blend of two grape varieties that originate in the Rioja region of Spain. Spicy, with good structure, this is an excellent partner for Mediterranean cuisine, or even as a winter warmer in front of the fire. Lovely stuff. $24. French accent Arrogant Frog 2015 Ribet White Sauvignon Blanc The Arrogant Frog label was an instant hit when it was launched in 2005 by Jean-Claude Mas, a fourth-generation winemaker from LanguedocRoussillon in southern France. A decade on and the wines still offer a taste of France at ridiculously low prices. This is a particularly appealing savvy blanc, without the high-acid excesses of some of its young Kiwi cousins. It is bright and fruity and offers refreshment plus. Try Dan Murphy’s or BWS stores. $10 Bargain red Rymill 2014 The Dark Horse Cabernet Sauvignon If you enjoy ripe and juicy cabernets from Coonawarra this one offers plenty of value for money. It is flavoursome and intense but also ready to drink right now. It is named after Adlai, a horse that was destined for the knacker’s yard until purchased by the late Judy Rymill, for whom it proved a champion show jumper. The wine isn’t quite Olympic class, but it is very, very good. $24 www.gourmetontheroad.blogspot.com. MELISSA Leong An exercise in creativity When I was about 14, I returned home from Glebe Markets with my new favourite thing. A silky, luxuriously floor length turquoise silk robe (possibly mid-length on anyone else but for my 5-foot-something frame), and I loved it. Upon showing my new trophy item to my mother, I was a little taken aback that she did not share my enthusiasm for this reclaimed treasure and instead recoiled in horror. In her eyes, I was wearing the cast-offs of some anonymous stranger, “who could be dead.” Possibly, but was that any reason to reject such a fabulous artifact? Recycling, or the very cool trend of up-cycling (that is, taking something used and adding value to it) has become such a topic of conversation lately and it isn’t any wonder. We’re running out of resources faster than a fat cat can shove cream into its face and economically, it makes sense to learn to do more with less. So too, when it comes to food. You may have seen bus shelter posters around Sydney lately, asking people to rethink leftovers and quite frankly, I think it’s genius. I’m by no means a scrupulous thrift monger when it comes to life in general, but when it comes to food, I hate waste. Call it a function of spending time with too many farmers, or working in an industry where we far too often see unnecessary waste, but it fills me with guilt. Regardless of whether you know first hand how long it takes to grow a vegetable or what gets thrown in the garbage after a photo shoot, resourcefulness and a waste-minimising approach to food is a philosophy we could all afford to adopt a little more seriously. Think about it as a creative challenge, to waste as little as possible. Save roast meat bones in the freezer until you have enough to make stock with, same too, with vegetable offcuts. Get creative with leftover vegetables and meat by making pies, soups and stews in the cold weather. Recycling for some people, like my mother, may initially strike you as something in the domain of patchouli-scented greenies or cash-strapped families who live in some area of the world where you don’t live. But I prefer to think of it more for its potential for greatness: to tap into your creativity and originality. Some of the greatest cuisines in the world such as Italian, Chinese and even the best French dishes were born out of necessity, after all.

n Your say Do you have any rules you follow when you buy clothes? “My rule would be to go to Kathmandu. Their clothes are good quality and come at a good price. Everything I am wearing today is Kathmandu!” David, Leichhardt “Not really. If it fits and looks good, I buy it.” Ben, Earlwood “I always go to boutiques, not shopping centres. I can't stand them!” Linda, Leichhardt “I usually buy designer clothing during sales or I buy secondhand. I look out for high-quality, classic pieces so I can keep wearing them for 10 years into the future. I cough up more money, but the item lasts much longer in the end.” Tina, Five Dock “I like to buy natural fibres and I always look at the workmanship.” Hans, Redfern “My only rule is to find the cheapest option. I'm a pensioner so I have to.” Maria, Leichhardt “As middle-aged women, we just go for the clothes that look good, suit our work and life. We also avoid buying clothes made in places where we know there are sweatshops, like Bangladesh. We just don't do that.” Wendy & Louise, Lewisham n Sustainability VEG out Samantha Hayes explains why the Inner West is a great place to go meat-free. One month ago, after 19 years of eating meat daily, I began to think about the sustainability and ethics of what I was doing. After a small nudge from some vegetarian friends, I decided to try to emulate their plant-based diets. If you are thinking of making the change, the Inner West has a vibrant vegetarian and vegan community to make your transition smooth and delicious! Why not challenge yourself to try going vegetarian for just one week? This was my approach and I haven’t looked back since. Lentil As Anything 391 King St, Newtown Founded in St Kilda in 2000, Lentil as Anything's Sydney operation is a not-for-profit restaurant a stone’s throw from Newtown Station. By far the friendliest restaurant I’ve ever been to, Lentils (as it's called by regulars) asks customers to “pay as you feel” and is founded on the motto, “Everyone deserves a place at the table.” The feeling of community is palpable; staff members are all volunteers, local musicians put on live shows for free and members of the community contribute all the art featured on the walls. Ungaro Raw 656 Darling St, Rozelle Ungaro Raw specialises in raw food, vegan and vegetarian dishes with all ingredients sourced locally and ethically. The menu will satisfy not only your vegetarian needs but also your Instagram account! I would recommend one of Ungaro's vegetarian burgers; all patties are made from chickpeas and lentils, served on a delicious wholemeal bun. Flesh free doesn't need to mean taste free Hari’s vegetarian 157 Broadway, Ultimo As the name suggests, this Hare Krishna eatery is yet another great source of cheap, nutritious vegetarian food. Specialising in Indian food, Hari’s is affordable and delicious. Marrickville organic food markets 142 Addison Road, Addison Road Community Centre Held every Sunday these markets offer the best in fresh local produce and fresh food. Vegan and vegetarian stalls, such as Venus Wholefoods, abound. Your local supermarket While not strictly vegetarian, your local supermarket is sure to stock vegetarian ingredients; and they’re probably things you already eat! Oats, lentils, chickpeas, nuts, Chia seeds, spinach, peanut butter and pumpkin are there for all your iron and protein needs. Other everyday products such as Vegemite and Oreos (yes, Oreos) are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. Community Rejects WestConnex A recent rally held in Rozelle saw around 500 community members call for a halt to the WestConnex project and its funding from the Federal Government. This community response is in light of recent independent survey results, which show that the 62 per cent of Western Sydney residents surveyed will avoid using the tollway if built. The polling was commissioned by the No WestConnex: Public Transport group (NoW Public Transport) and conducted by independent group ReachTel. The poll also revealed that additionally 64 per cent of the community would prefer to see the $16.8 billion directed towards public transport projects. Spokesperson for NoW Public Transport Gavin Gatenby says that while there is clear evidence that Inner West residents are against the project, the polling makes clear that this mentality also reaches Western Sydney. “These polling results should be a wake-up call to the major parties. Stop the rhetoric and start listening to the people of Western Sydney,” says Gatenby. “Both the survey results and the rally mark the continued growth in the campaign against WestConnex, with support for community groups opposing the project increasing.” The rally was a collective effort by the WestConnex Action Group, Save Newtown from WestCONnex, Save Ashfield Park, Rozelle Against WestConnex and NoW Public Transport. “There was huge support for the rally’s call to halt the Federal funding of WestConnex – and it was clear this issue determined the way people voted in the election,” said WestCONnex Action Group spokesperson, Pauline Lockie. Tuesday's Inner West Council meeting approved hiring a lawyer to advise on possible challenges to WestConnex demolition work. Road to traffic perdition Photo: Luca Altamore Entries close: 31 July 2016 n Local news Share My Shoes Campaign This month local shopping centres Birkenhead Point Outlet Centre and Rhodes Waterside will be launching the Share My Shoes initiative, which aims to raise funds for the Smith Family’s Learning for Life program, providing educational support for disadvantaged youth. Shoppers are invited to donate their shoes at the centres until July 31, when they will then be donated to the Smith Family and resold in their retail stores. For those unwilling or unable to part with their beloved shoes, simply snap a photo of your shoes on your feet and post it to social media with the hashtag #sharemyshoes and Mirvac Centre’s will donate one dollar to the Smith Family per photo. The centres ask that any shoes donated throughout the campaign are clean with the laces tied together. Aunty Jenny reopens the Embassy Aboriginal Tent Embassy Returns After almost a year since its closure, Aunty Jenny Munro has lead the return of the Tent Embassy to the Redfern area, in an ongoing fight to secure more and maintain current low-cost housing. Opened on June 25th, the new embassy is situated on Waterloo Greens, not far from its previous site opposite Redfern Station. Following the Embassy's success last year, which involved government construction of 62 affordable homes on ‘The Block’, Wiradjuri Elder Jenny Munro and her supporters, including the Waterloo Public Housing Action Group, are acting in direct response to the planned forced removal of public housing tenants from the Waterloo flats. Scheduled for 2017, the removal of residents and subsequent demolition is to make way for the NSW Governments plan for a new precinct which will encompass a mixture of private and social housing. The Waterloo Tent Embassy is run by volunteers who are calling on the public to stop by, say hello and take a stand for social housing. n For further information about the tent embassy visit wphag.wordpress.com/about/. Norton Plaza Supports Local Community Each month, Leichhardt shopping centre Norton Plaza will be awarding $400 in grants to local community groups who demonstrate engagement with the community and public. “We would like to assist in building these organisations and their ability to bring initiatives to life within the community,” said Assistant Property Manager Julia Miller. Submissions with clear plans on how the grant will be spent will be considered strongly, with the recipient ultimately chosen by votes from the community via the Norton Plaza website. “There are various groups in the area working hard to create growth and implement initiatives, and we want to be able to contribute to this,” said Miller. n To register your community organisation visit www. nortonplaza.com.au.
