Regards public outrage concerning Shell’s December 1 seismic survey, the Daily Dispatch newspaper has our minister for Fisheries, Forestry and the Environment, Barbara Creecy, saying, ” Go to court. I’m not involved.”
67850 signatures and counting are asking that Creecy does take this survey on review, and we’ll give her her day in court.
Thanks to those who are participating in the selfie campaign, thanks to those who are swamping the desks of SLR, environmental assessor and consultants to Shell and CGG, thanks to those who will bulk out the comments and objections to be truly representative of a public participation process that is true to this moment in global warming, and not the climate denialism of 2014.
From small scale fisher co-ops that have recently become Significant Rights Holders, to hoteliers, to those whose livelihoods depend on all that makes the Wild Coast exquisite for tourism, to those who hold these waters sacred, to those who visit and those who live there, to youth who understand that seismic surveys lead to oil and gas production and the pollution, destruction and violence that comes in its wake, the call is loud – ANOTHER WORLD IS POSSIBLE!
