Beautiful and brave friends of the earth

MY beautiful and courageous friend Nada reading a poem by Drew Dellinger.
Received an email this morning with this news about Nada and Tony,
“Early this morning, her and Tony made their way into the Leard State Forest — which is the site of Whitehaven’s Maules Creek coal mine, the largest coal mine in development in Australia — and they locked on to a piece of mining equipment (a piledriver). They attached photos of each of their 6 grandchildren to the piledriver, and crawled into the belly of it, where they locked themselves to a hydraulic pipe.”
Thanks Nada and Tony for reminding me that this is not my earth to use or abuse. I am only a custodian for a very brief time.
