The idiots that climbed trees and three rocks at the WRCars on the first day of the event were quickly arrested by police, and readers of the newspaper were quick to make their feelings known.
In a letters column, the following comments were made:
â€œDoes this mean the Tweed will not be featured on the next XBOX 360 World Rally Championship game that goes out to 350 million game players? Damn treehuggers. An opportunity lost.â€ â€“ Des
â€œProtesters are only doing harm to the local businesses who benefit from the income brought in by the WRC. The WRC will/should just pack up and take it somewhere people will appreciate the sport. These so called protesters are committing crimes like those throwing stones off bridges at cars, so why arenâ€™t they being arrested?â€ â€“ John C.
â€œAs a local I am extremely embarrassed and angry at these protests. These people just donâ€™t seem to understand they donâ€™t own the country. I am ashamed. I hope the culprits are brought to justice.â€ â€“ David
â€œMaybe itâ€™s time we went down Nimbin/Uki way to protest the HEMP Olympics? An event that celebrates all things ILLEGAL. Imagine what all that pot smoke is doing to the environment. If you donâ€™t like decisions of your govt, vote them out, donâ€™t threaten the lives of these world class drivers.â€ â€“ LAC, Gold Coast
In our view, these comments sum the situation up nicely.
