Jo Faith, Newtown

Thank you for publishing Mandy’s beautiful article of the sentient beings amongst us, trees, our greatest protectors and allies against the forces of climate change.

My adult voice resonates this bonding. ‘Always consider the rights of Nature’.

The day the great trees were slaughtered in Railway Park my anger was primitive. I knew there would be bad ju-ju. I silently weep as I see the bad Ju Ju spreading in Byron. Loss of a park, felling of trees, loss of the rights of nature and holistic vision. I say to every child in every village: rise up and shout ‘enough is enough’.
