Save Our Strathfield urges residents to rally outside Parliament House

Save Our Strathfield are urging residents to continue their fight against the threat of amalgamation.

In a combined effort with the Save Our Councils movement, which includes councillors and residents from across Sydney, there will be a protest outside parliament house on Monday 27 July.

Save Our Strathfield's co-chair Nella Gaughan said the group will continue to rally until a decision by the State Government is made.

"We believe amalgamations should only take place where communities of LGAs have voted in favour of amalgamation in a valid referendum," she said.

"The Government has no right to foist this appalling policy on the community after failing to raise the broader implications of amalgamation with voters prior to the recent Senate election.”

While the deadlines have closed for the submissions to IPART and the parliamentary inquiry, the residents will continue to write to the State Government, protesting against amalgamation.

The group will be holding a meeting on August 5 at the Strathfield Library in Homebush at 6:30pm.

The rally on Monday will be held outside Parliament House at 8:30am.
