I went to our large local  Robina Town Centre Shopping Centre on the Gold Coast
today and asked to speak to centre management about  getting permission to set up a small table
and asking people to sign a community petition.  

They asked me what the
petition was about & I replied that it was a community petition about Banking Reform. 

The woman went into another office and spoke with a centre manager. She came
out  a few minutes later and told me that the management spokesperson ( who
didn't even have the decency to come out & see me) would not allow this as
it would upset the banks, and banks were tenants there,  so NO, we couldn't.

Even the shopping centre managers are afraid.
