Activists take to the streets of Brisbane among other major cities around the world to raise awareness about the dangers of geo-engineering.
Under a warm sun and ironically a naturally cloudy sky, approximately 25 Brisbanites set up camp adjacent the Treasury Casino at the top of the Queen Street Mall today. Apart from their anti-chemtrail t-shirts, banners, flyers and DVD’s one could have easily assumed that these folk were your typical ordinary Aussies.
What sets them apart from everyone else however is their lack of apathy. And thank goodness for that. If it wasn’t for the South East Queenslanders Against Chemtrails & Geo-engineering group dozens of passer-by’s would have continued on their merry way through the streets of Brisbane unaware of what’s going on in the skies above them.
The groups main objective is to raise awareness on the issue of weather modification carried out by means of geo-engineering. A term used to describe the intentional manipulation of the Earth’s climate and delicate weather systems for reasons as serious as weather warfare.
Although it would have been more impressive to see a larger number of people show their support, so long as you get through to at least one person, you can say it was a successful endeavour. Not only did I witness first hand plenty of flyers and DVD’s making it into the hands of fellow Brisbanites but there were plenty of people stopping for a friendly chat to see what all the hubbub was about. It was clear that the message was getting through.
“I only found out about chemtrails and geo-engineering just over a week ago” said Michael, a gentleman who had come by to show his support. “I was on YouTube the other night and somehow ended up clicking on one of the suggested videos”, [that YouTube has on the right hand column], “and I ended up watching the documentary ‘What in the World Are They Spraying?’. Next thing I knew I was looking on Facebook looking for groups taking part in the protest”.
Another protest was taking place in Brisbane today. A very large group of concerned Queenslanders were marching in a show of support for our Great Barrier Reef. The best part was that in a show of mutual care and consideration each group shouted out support for each others cause as they marched on by down George Street. It was refreshing to see how many of them were aware of the chemtrail/geo-engineering issue.
- Look Up. Speak Up – The Chemtrail Issue.
- Weather modification, protecting our livelihoods or harming us all?
What’s not so refreshing is the fact that it’s left up to independent and alternative media sites to cover events like this. It’s considered a “career ending move” for any main stream media outlets to cover a protest such as this. Hence why you won’t see any coverage on the nightly news or in the morning paper. Unless there’s Molotov cocktails or tear gas being exchanged by riot police and overreacting protestors it’s not considered news.
Reports have been coming in regarding the protests in other parts of Australia with plenty of photos and video too. Numbers have been excellent and the vibe is that more and more Aussies are going to be looking up more often and actually start to question the long white lines criss-crossed in the skies above them and why they’re lingering for hours at a time.
