I heard about this campaign through The Wilderness Society via their website. I decided that the action would be a great way to show my children how important it was to stand up for the things you believe in and how they can help protect the earth. This peaceful protest was the perfect way to show you can get your message across without violence and anger.
We greeted the shareholders arriving at their annual general meeting with a red carpet, lots of smiles and our message, hoping they would vote ethically on Woodside’s move to construct a natural gas hub in the northern Kimberley.
The Kimberley Gas Hub is a significant risk to both marine and terrestrial species (As outlined here by the Wilderness Society and here by Save the Kimberley) as well as potentially destructive to a piece of beautiful coastline like no other on Earth.
The idea of risking so many unique and wonderful species was enough to get us along to show our support!
Being a Rainbow Yogi means that even in the face of insurmountable odds, you need to get involved and stand up for what you believe in!
But if you aren’t comfortable with hitting the picket line, even the little things you do can help set a good example for your children. Sign a petition or donate to worthy cause. Get your littles involved and explain to them what the cause is fighting for.
Like Paul Kelly said, from little things, big things grow! 🙂
