I prefer the protesters out in the streets where everyone can see them and where they help bring the issues back to the minds of those that vote. There is a silent majority out there and as long as those issues are only discussed in the corridors of power, the masses get shoved aside by interest groups. Thats harder when everyone is looking. Do I endorse the activists? Hell no – they are to face the full force of the law and be held responsible for the damage they are doing,. I suggest a very long vacation somewhere in the Austrian Alps without anything fossil energy made. Thats bound to be uncomfortable.
Plummeting left wing concern about Covid has sadly brought the climate protestors back onto the streets of Australian cities.
