Mercy "Troublemakers" Add Their Voice Over Heritage Concerns
With a continuous presence in Parramatta of more than 125 years, the Sisters of Mercy Parramatta appreciate the significant historical, and social importance of the North Parramatta Heritage Precinct.
A petition of more than 10,000 signatures was presented to NSW State Parliament a week earlier on behalf of the Parramatta Female Factory Friends and other local groups in the community who are fighting to save and protect the Heritage Precinct from extensive proposed development around the site.
Today's rally saw Jack Munday and members of the CFMEU join Federal MP Julie Owens and several community groups in the fight to save this significant site in the history of Parramatta and the Sydney Colony.
Julie Owens welcomed the Sisters of Mercy "Troublemakers" lending their support in fighting injustice wherever it occurs.
