1. Yet again women continue to lead the charge: High school students, from left, Rachael Stone, Hannah Prisk and Paige Linneweever, talked at the Palmerston North City Library on Wednesday 5th June 2019 about the state of the environment.
While public advertising of their talk was was almost non-existent; in the public media, it is was not unexpected that the numbers attending to be small...and that was the case. And this was strange because the talk had been sponsored by the Manawatu Standard and the city library.
The three bright and intelligent high school students, Rachael, Hannah and Paige were joined by a brilliant young singing sensation...Do you know her name: [please send me a massage as I failed to write it down when I took the photo...thanks you in advance.]
Between them all it was an event well worthy of a much larger crowd...because the message they were offering was absolutely vital and of massive importance to the human race.
From my perspective [old white male] the fact that these three young woman were brave enough to stand up in public and speak out on the leading issue of the day simply says it all.
And while I thank the Manawatu Standard and the Library a bit more advertising is needed if you want to draw a worthy crowd.
When you compare their progressive mode of thinking to that of for example the Chairperson of the Horizons District Council: Bruce Gordon and his bunch of non progressive ward councillors and their shutting down of creating community communications links. Lets hope that at this upcoming election we get a few more progressive Councillors such as Rachael Kedwell on board...
|Smug Bruce Gordon...lives in an era of the stupid...|
Rachael, Hannah and Paige must cringe when they read of just how backward our local government leaders have become in regard to new concepts and ideas for better and more meaningful interactions between the so-called leadership and the electors. I get the very real impression that poor old Bruce Gordon does not believe in climate change.
I stand, as I hope you do too, on the side of the younger generation with their progressive thinking rather than the efforts of smug types like Bruce Gordon and Donald Trump...who can't seem to understand the difference between truth and bull dust...wearing a tie doesn't make one intelligent...out dated ideas remain out dated ideas no matter how you dress them up...
It was good to see a growing number of Councils here in NZ and around the world are buying into the concept of declaring a climate emergency for their regions...one can only hope that Palmerston North and Horizons will muster the internal fortitude to do the same...The success of the XR [extinction rebellion] movement has swept the UK and Europe and the US.
And the treatment dished out to the worlds greatest political and public liar Donald Trump by the people of the UK was absolutely amazing... Yet Donald Trump tells us it is all false news...the people of the UK really love him.... the pictures we see on our television or on our social media platforms is all just, false news. It is really ironic that the US sends its President an anti military draft dodger [some would say a coward] to praise American non draft dodges who took part in D day...its so typical of the Hollywood bull-Shit that still prevails throughout the US collective mentality in their rewriting of history... we should never forget that the US took three years to enter the 2nd World War...
|Trump says this picture is false news...yeah right.|
