The Queensland Floods have affected many thousands of people and will continue to do so for months, if not for years to come. Today, the people of Brisbane and South East Queensland have mobilised to help the people clean up. The Brisbane City Council was expecting 6000 to turn out but it has been reported that 22, 000 people have turned up, rolled their sleeves up and got stuck in. Now that’s people power !
