CAWB is a grassroots organisation based in Windsor NSW, the third oldest settlement in Australia. We are dedicated to fighting for the most progressive infrastructure solution for Windsor and the Hawkesbury. A current plan by the RMS, known as Option 1, would see the demolition of the historic Windsor Bridge, the construction of a two lane ‘like for like‘ replacement, and a major, arterial road bulldozed through Thompson Square, Australia’s oldest public space. Not only would this proposal be destructive to the unique and fragile heritage of an important part of our nation's history, it would also prove to be an ineffective solution to the ever increasing demands of road users. Make sure YOU have YOUR say today!
The Occupation of Thompson Square enters its 4th year!
On July 21, 2016, CAWB celebrated the third birthday of the continuous occupation of Australia's oldest public space, Thompson Square. Twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, volunteers man the 'High Commission' tent set in the corner of the square, on a section of the ground that, if the plan goes ahead, will be buried by the new project. The volunteers take it in turns to protect the square on a roster of four hourly shifts. As you could imagine, when you are sitting there 24 hrs a day, in all sorts of weather, all manner of interesting events take place... But most of all, the High Commissioners all report meeting the most wonderful people, having a few laughs, and strengthening their resolve to fight this third rate plan.
