Barry Stone: Employment Agent, lives on Lake Menindee in NSW.  Behind him is 15 kilometres of dry lake-bed to the other side. 

 As this water system  dries he knows  the actual  damage that is happening to people, communities and ecosystems. 

 "We out here are looking at  total destruction of  the outback of New South Wales, total destruction. 

 And, I'd like to say  to the city fellas, we are  not bullshitting you here.  We are living it !"

An ever increasing and multiplying  crime has been occurring against our people and our habitat right under our noses for decades " [The Vanishing River website]

Hear the voices of people who actually live along the Darling River and Menindee Lakes in in Western NSW:  the now dry and dusty strip that  was a  flowing waterway rich with culture. 

This is  part two of  a  series.
