Subject: Don't wreck our Beutiful park

Hi,

Let me set a scene for you.
It’s a beautiful day, the birds are silently chirping in Oatley park, and the sun is just rising. I go for a walk, through the damp green grass. I hear the rustle of some birds in the tree and the annoying, loud humming of a tall telephone tower.

My name is Andrew. I am 12 years old, and live in Oatley west, only about 100m from Oatley Park oval. My friends and I go to the park a lot, to ride our bikes, to have picnics, to play soccer, and I know a lot of other kids do to. I'm sure everyone would agree with me, that the highlight of Oatley is our wonderful park.
My friends and I go to the park a lot, to ride our bikes, to have picnics, to play soccer, and I know a lot of other kids do to. What’s more, Oatley Park contains some endangered flora and fauna! I'm sure everyone would agree with me, that the highlight of Oatley is our wonderful park.
Then, a rich guy in Hong Kong came along, the owner of Hutchinson’s telecommunications and decided to make it a place to store his 24m telephone contraption. We will be able to see this from our house. When we look over into the bush, souring above the tops of the beautiful trees we will see a tall telecommunications tower. There are plenty of other places where they can “Dump” this tall “machine”, but NO! It had to go smack bang in the middle of our beautiful Oatley park.

However, looks aren’t just the problem. This tall tower also has another fault. Radiation. I have 1 sister who is 6 months weeks old, a brother who is 9 years old, and another brother 4 years old. We are not planning to move for a while, which means that for the whole of our childhood, we will be living under the roof of a large, tall, ugly, radiation maker, which is hurting us. Plus all the children who go to Oatley West Public school. Did the Australian Government listen to us though? NO!

Soccer matches, cricket games, picnics- many people come to Oatley park each day! But what annoys me most is the government. Aren’t they trying to stop us polluting the environment? Well why the hell are they letting some law be made that “MR LI KA-SHING” up in Hong Kong, wreck our park! IT’S AN OUTRAGE! OUR BEAUTIFUL PARK, RUINED, JUST FOR A WHOLE LOT OF MOBILE PHONES!”

The government is there to help our community, and our country. Now, if our community doesn’t want a big tower, and protest this much, then why on earth are they letting them plant a big tower in the middle of Oatley Park? We have over 1000 signatures of people who are against the idea of the Hutchison’s 3G Tower.

I just hope, that, even if we don’t manage to stop all this, Orange will realise what they have done.
