The trees whisper, but nobody is able to decipher their language
He fights for our rights
He is no Luddite……

ask him his price
he should not rise
it will be to the detriment
of profit rules, sacrament
Politicians lambast him

What if a few inconsequential lives are lost? Development of the country needs sacrifices from all. Their stories are soon forgotten. Life goes on …. the race towards prosperity and international awards for climate change continues.
