We have all had our moments chanting "What do we want.. Climate Action. When do we want it? Now" or "Stop, Stop, Stop Stop, Adani". Does protest work we say? What about Bob Brown, who might have single handedly lost the election?
Charging horses aside, have we stepped into some morass of self blame, side stepping the necessary analysis about whether or not the forces of coal and their political running mates might just have better handle on some kind of, a get go kind of social glue, instead of the less cheerful version, neo liberal at the centre, of a plethora of policies run out of a persona afflicted with the non-scrapable epithet of Shifty....Time is running out. The truth is that we are heading for extinction - unless we U turn into a functional democracy where the cries of our children for climate justice are attended to forthwith. This is where Extinction Rebellion comes in.
