Poo March

Posted: January 28, 2011 at 9:32 am

During the 80’s water pollution at Sydney beaches was a serious health issue due to the ocean outfalls pumping raw sewerage into the sea. Whenever a Northeaster hit Cronulla became toxic. Someone once said,”You can shit one in the morning and surf with it later in the day”. The Poo March was an organised protest that gathered together, Tree Huggers , Surfers, ecologists and anyone who wanted the ocean cleaned up. It became an annual event for  a while with protesters marching along the Cronulla beach front and earning a lot of negative publicity for the Goverment.
