The Centaurus Public Meeting on Monday 6 Aug 2007
Amazing how we just talked about the changing skyline and the weird naming of the building called ‘Centaurus’, that the next day this email circulates around the Pakistan web. I am Just forwarding this message which might help some of us, not me, at least.

Subject: URGENT: Come to the Centaurus Public Meeting on Monday 6 Aug 2007
Please Circulate widely. If you care for Islamabad, don’t just moan about its decline.
Come to the Public Meeting at the Convention Center (Islamabad) at 10.30 am on Monday 6 Aug 2007
Yes it is at an awkward time, 10:30am on a working day, but NGO bods should be making your views known about this wasteful project.
If you don’t turn up don’t complain if you tax money is used to the tune of Rs 1.62 Billion to build this monster for the filthy rich – only Rs 14 million for a one-bedroom apartment!
Journalists need to come and and write extensively about this. This will persuade the Pakistan Environmental protection Authority to act decisively. I think there is a need for the Supreme Court to take suo moto action against a lot of illegal practices that have become common in the capital.
See you there.

I don’t know what the truth behind the claim is and if it is worth it going to the CC in the middle of work or not, but still this is not my type of an activity, have fun at the meeting.
