The sight of little children cheering on the Stop Adani Mine on the front page of The Echo two weeks ago was truly nauseating.
In the process of brainwashing and manipulating their children I am sure those parents have not discussed the deaths of over a million Indian children each year through the ingestion of polluted air from cooking and heating fires.
That the Adani coal is to be shipped to India to fuel new power plants to provide electrical power to those in need is of no interest to these parents.
That children cannot attend school as they are needed to search for twigs and animal dung to fuel their home fires; who cares? They are going to die anyway.
If Australia does not provide the coal it will be sourced elsewhere.
This is all about feeling good about ourselves and caring less for others.
But wait, I forgot.
The Green movement, who initiates these protests, believes the world is overpopulated so isn’t it good that a million little Indian children die each year to help keep the population increase down.
Go outside and play with your new signs, kiddies, and leave Mummy and Daddy to feel good about their first- world selves.
