Eviction Notice to protectors of 500 year old Sacred Birthing Trees Western Highway.

One has to ask under what Power does NIGEL POWERS have the power to order this eviction.

Is this the power of the law of the land issued by a court of law or is it the power of the law of money issued by a corporation? Not that it will make a difference in the end, as one hand washes the other with the blood of the families and communities they exploit, but it is a dangerous move by the Victorian State Government towards the final solution.
