No More Pokies in Breakwater
The Geelong community is being faced with yet another application for more poker machines - this time at White Eagle House in Breakwater. The club already takes nearly $1.7 million from the community every year! This is over $4,600 DAILY!! Now they want 43 to add to their existing 35 - they are wanting to more than double the number of machines!
Last year, we saw more applications for more pokies rejected than ever before! This comes down to better understanding into pokie-harm and local communities raising their voice and speaking out against these applications.
