"Our first week of Public Hearings, in Mildura/Buronga, Wentworth and
Broken Hill--as part of the Citizens' Inquiry into the Health of the
Darling River and Menindee Lakes--have been heartbreaking. We listened
to people tell us about their dying ecosystems, stressed communities and
fearful futures. But I must confess that none of it prepared me for the
genuine shock of what’s going on in Menindee, and how life is there now
for the 500 or so people who call this little town their home."

Via Muse, who wrote: "This is non-democratic rationing. This is
rationing of critical resources according to the whims of the wealthy.
In fact it's not even that...it's holding water hostage and threatening
lives."

Cheers,
