COFFS Harbour will host a Coo-ee Rally on Sunday to protest against restrictions imposed on landowners by native vegetation laws and regulations.

Members of the Property Rights Support Group, which is fighting for property rights for landowners, will hold the Rally at 3pm on March 7 in the Rainbow Room at C.ex Coffs Harbour (formerly Coffs Harbour Ex-Services Club) and all interested people are invited to attend.

Retired Nambucca Valley farmers and Coo-ee Rally organisers Jeanette Jones and her husband, Bob, will both speak at the Coffs Harbour Rally.

Mrs Jones said at least one-third of the meeting would be given over to members of the audience to speak on the subject.

In addition to talking about the various pieces of legislation passed in the past 20 years which have affected NSW land owners’ use of their properties, Mr and Mrs Jones will also speak about the Property Rights Support Group rally held in Sydney on February 24.

Mrs Jones said she was hoping to have Cooma farmer; farmers’ land rights campaigner and former hunger striker, Peter Spencer, come to Coffs Harbour to speak at a public meeting if the Coo-ee Rally proved successful.

Further information is available from Jeanette and Bob Jones. Phone 66524240 or email
