Volume 90, Issue 93

Environmentalist students, calling themselves the Swine Squad, protested on the concrete beach today in 1990 because of the amount of trash left there by sunbathers.

The squad put a 15-metre banner on the side of the University Community Centre which read: 'Hey Biff and Tad...! Don't trash the concrete pad!!' The group of three students put the banner up after three consecutive days of trash buildup.

It took Western groundskeepers an extra four hours and 20 extra garbage cans to clean the debris off the beach.
