What would you do if your neighbour demolished your home, and then sold your land to the highest bidder? You would likely call the police, the property ombudsman, or whoever had the power to stop it. Unfortunately for those of us in the Pacific, the people with the power to stop this happening don’t see our rights as a priority.
We’ve spent the last 20 years arguing for international action on climate change with very little effect and now we’re down to our last line of defence. This is why we’ve been compelled to take action and block Australia’s largest coal port in Newcastle today. Some will call us eco-terrorists and claim that we are just here causing trouble, but wouldn’t you do the same if it was your country was under threat?
