Minority figure

IN reference to Rex Sallur’s letter in the June 16 edition headlined �More than a minority�, if one were to add up all the numbers of petitioners and demonstrators he cites in support of his contention that he is not a member of a � loud minority�, even discounting the probability that many of them would be represented more than once in the events that he enumerates, we still only have 10,000 or so.

A fair number of folks to be sure, but out of a population in Cockburn alone of 100,000 or more, leaving out the populations of Fremantle and East Fremantle, I’m afraid it has to be conceded that this figure does indeed amount to a minority, loud or mute.
