The Princess has provided us with so many years of great memories. But most importantly, our wetlands have to be protected because a change in any of the WC wetland biomes will create a shift in the entire wetlands system. Disastrous for our endemic fauna and flora! People travel from all over the world to view our natural beauty, and we want to destroy it for the sake of Mamon? Hell no! And just imagine what a taxi rank will do to the environment - people urinating and defaecating...

People travel from all over the world to view our natural beauty, and we want to destroy it for the sake of Mamon? Hell no! And just imagine what a taxi rank will do to the environment - people urinating and defaecating everywhere, paper and plastic pollution, stagnant water, oil pollution etc. The chain reaction will be catastrophic. Stop the madness - No malls at Princess Vlei!

Malls are owned by property magnates- they make their money by charging exhorbitant rents to the small line shops. The big anchor tenants pay proportionally very little. All the existing small shopkeepers in the area would lose business and be forced to pay higher rents to stay in business in the mall.

The people who actually do the work, have to sweat it out to make the fat cats rich. And the gullible are taken in by the mantra of how good it is to have everything under one roof. Are our memories that short? Shopping from shop to shop in the Main road was OK!

This is not just about saving the VLEI... it's about setting a standard where the government listens to the people it's supposed to represent. STOP the local government from bulldozing our voices!

There is a glut of malls and shopping complexes.We don't need another -especially not at the expense of our natural heritage.
