Our Group is not anti-development but anti-pollution.

If the development industry cannot lift their effort to preserve the aquatic environment whilst they rape the land then they should be prosecuted in the order of millions of dollars for each day they continue.

$240 fines are not a deterent as the video pictures above show.

Most probably only a warning was issued to the developer or his agent or sub-contractor.
