What a difference community outrage and bad media makes. The WA State Government and National Trust obviously did not like the criticism they received about the neglect of the old George Hotel in East Fremantle so they quickly got the graffiti removed and painted some of the hoarding red.
That is not good enough though because the community wants to see the beautiful heritage building activated and put to good use and we don’t want to wait another ten years for it to happen.
There is a petition going around for the government to look after the building better, so go and sign it. For Freo people they can go to Simone McGurke’s office in Market Street opposite the post office.
