Save the Trees!!
These days there’s- finally!- a rumpus being created by people with brains about the 10,000 trees slated for choppage along the canal to broaded the road. We all know that 10,000 trees is far in excess of the actual number that should be cut, and that the g0overnment’s is absolutely crap at protecting the environment, let alone gap replanting the trees they will destroy. 800 extra trees were cut for the Thokar and Jinnah Hospital underpasses; this time we have to do something to protect our City of Gardens!
There’s a meeting tomorrow at Nairang Gallaries (which is opposite Kinnaird College) at 5:30 on Tuesday, 27 June. The ‘Darakht Bachao, Lahore Bachao’ people really need volunteers, so if you can go, please please do so. There is also a Peoples Conference at Ali Complex on Friday, the details of which one will probably be told of at the Tuesday meeting. You can also call this number and leave your name and e-mail address if you’d like to be informed of further meetings :042-6303037. Let’s really pull together, people, and save our little bit of the world!
