Protest dolls cry
DO you hear the babies crying?
Crying for things they’ll never see,
Millions of lives lost through our greed and complacency.
They are the voices yet to come they carry our dreams and love within.
They’re the children of our blood, but still we cannot see, the devastation we leave them, all in the name of Prosperity!
Will you join in our crusade?
Will you be strong and stand with me?
Together we can stop, the madness and the greed.
Rare frogs and insects lost.
Birds with songs they’ll never hear.
A coral reef, what’s that they’ll say
But does it have to be?
It is time to take a stand, Will you be brave and stand with me?
Beyond the cafes and shops, is there a world we cannot see?
The history is ours, and together we must stop
Please help us stand up for future generations. To find out more come along to the free screening of 'Guarding the Galilee’ at Sandbag, 153 Rainbow St Sandgate, on Monday, July 17 at 7pm or find us on Facebook at 4017 Stop Adani.
Earlier this year I was having a sleepless night, worried about the state of our world and nursing my shame that I hadn’t done enough to protest against the proposed Adani coal mine in QLD.
I started thinking about what I could do to make a different. What came through for me was the idea of using Baby Dolls to represent future generations who can't speak for themselves.
I shared this idea on Facebook and encouraged others to drop off dolls to me with a personal message. I then started using the dolls in various actions.
I posted each State Members with portfolios a doll, I took the dolls on protests rallies to Minister Lynham's Office, Parliament House and various road side actions.
We are now using the dolls to let people know about the local screening of Guarding the Galilee.
You will find them at various locations around 4017. Have you given one a hug yet?
