This goverment can, t keep its sticky fingers off anything that's beautiful they just have to go and dig a hole in it!
Mining companies don't care... Aussie mining company is strip mining in remote islands off Thailand or Phillipines & destroying their coral beds with pollution. They are doing nothing to stop pollution as witnessed on People of the Sea. Imagine if the coast next to the great barrier reef was mined? We borrow the earth from future generations.
I oppose indiscriminate exploration and ventures which ruin natural heritage sites.
If it only produces some thought which it has it is well worth the effort. Personally I need to understand more , here's to information!
The wild coast is too beautiful to destroy. We will have to make another plan to create jobs for the people, build schools, training centres, vegetable gardens and to teach them to be self sufficient and to run their own businesses.I am currently working on getting money in for the area for development and not to destroy it.
We would understand if we as the local people were in support of this mining, but the fact is we have told the minsters that we do not want our land to be mined even if mining was the last option available for job creation.
We have the power to hold our publicly elected officials accountable, but only if we do something active - do not allow the minister to shrug her shoulders as others have done and pretend that she has acted in the interests of the very electorate that put her there in the first place; let your mouseclick match your mouth!
Well now when in history did profiteers take the consequences of their actions into consideration and how their actions will effect the future generations, of which will be their children as well! So in Democracy one would think that the majority would be heard? John Block is still in his job? Does it matter what we say? they own a war machine remember!
Go and mine elsewhere - leave the Transkei untouched!
We are lucky to have some unspoiled wildernesses left...let's set an example and protect them fiercely! Roarrrr
