A petition has been prepared protesting the planned closure of the
National Archives of Australia offices in Adelaide, Darwin and Hobart.
More details is available from:
* Facebook campaign site:
* History Council of Western Australia:
To put the case for, here is Ross Gibbs, Director-General of the
National Archives of Australia:
It is interesting that access to the dusty old archives is being argued
Our petition is going very well. To date I have approximately 2000
signatures from across the country.We want to close it off this Friday
so please collect them all now and post them to me. It doesn't matter if
there is only one signature on a sheet, it still counts, so please hunt
make sure you get them all.
C/- Archives & Records Management Services,
University of Sydney
Baiba Berzins and I will copy and bundle them up to send to the HR
Petitions Committee in time we hope to get on the agenda for their first
meeting in February.
And look out for the news coverage (we hope) of the Adelaide
demonstration at the Community cabinet meeting today. Of course I hope
everyone who can,
will get there to join it. I gather that three people are meeting
Senator Joe Judwig this afternoon thanks to the good organising going on
Please make sure someone takes photos to send to the list and to
put on the facebook site.
Have to say that the South Australians are making the running on
this campaign right now - Good for you!
