March for World Water Day

March 22nd is World Water Day and this year it’s theme is ‘The power of water and jobs’, a theme that is something very special to the town.

Water is important to Deniliquin, we’ve seen the effects of the long battle against aspects of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan, we’ve seen how Blue-Green Algae has driven locals and tourists from the Edward River and we know that water provides life to the crops the town and the world needs to have flourishing.

At 11am, Speak Up is hosting an event at the Waring Gardens where residents will first gather then start to march down the river boardwalk, the aim is to demonstrate that the people want a basin plan that provides for the people, provides profit and provides for the planet.

A BBQ will be operating on the day and drinks will also be available, DNS hopes that as many townspeople as possible are able to participate and voice their concerns about the way things are going.
