Adani mine

The Chronicle - - OPINION -

I AM em­bar­rassed to say I had no idea of the mag­ni­tude of the Adani coal mine.

As I sat watch­ing Moana with my three-year-old daugh­ter I was scrolling through In­sta­gram and came across a “stop Adani” peo­ple protest posted by some­one I re­spect in my com­mu­nity. Huh? What’s this all about? I started to re­search the mine.

My head started spin­ning and I felt sick. I couldn’t be­lieve I wasn’t a part of this protest.

I wor­ried I had left it too late and missed a crit­i­cal time in our his­tory to stand up for what is right. I started look­ing up what I could do to fight it and my daugh­ter saw a photo of a pro­tester’s sign of a sad Nemo. “Why is Nemo sad Mummy?”

The look in her eyes broke my heart. I want to be able to say I helped save Nemo and stopped the demise of our reef.

I im­plore your read­ers to do the same, for us, for our chil­dren and their chil­dren and stop Adani. — JODI PLUMBLEY, Har­ris­town
