Did You Know: Yellow is the Colour of Protest in OZ?
Word has reached us that a resident in Hervey Bay in Australia has staged a ‘yellow’ protest by painting his beachfront home a bright luminescent yellow – as well as his courtyard, garden kerbs, outdoor furniture, fences, sheds and water tanks to air his views towards his local council’s development approvals process.
A retired civil engineer, David Johnston has staged his demonstration for more than two years now and has garnered many supporters who have lodged similar complaints against their council’s failure to allow adjoining property owners protection from structural damage generated from multi-story developments.
The protest began after Johnston heard that a neighbour’s home had sustained $50,000 in structural damage during construction of an underground car park for units being built next door.
David, we love your style!
