SIXTY-FIVE local residents showed how strongly they opposed the Federal Government’s budget cuts by rallying on the Princes Highway on Sunday morning.

Protestors held banners objecting to pension, higher education and healthcare cuts and the GP tax.

Motorists tooted their support as they drove past the rally held opposite the council building.

The Bust the Budget rally, held to coincide with similar events around Australia, was organised locally by the Shoalhaven Greens.
