Since Friday all I’ve heard about are the actions of a fearful man.
I don’t to want hear about that any more.
I want to hear the voices of 30,000 striking school children marching down Collins Street on Friday morning.
I want to hear them calling on us to wake up and share our planet with all living things.
I want to hear about the life-saving friendships formed in an Immigration Detention Centre that have manifested into Tamil Feasts.
I want to hear Tamil cook, Nirma, tell me that he, Niro, Nigethon, Sri and Richmond have now shared their food and stories with 43,000 of us.
I want to hear Mikey & Kez from Mossy Willow Farm explain how every week 1000 people eat something grown in their tiny market garden.
I want to hear how their thoughtfully farmed acre of land provides a living for four people.
These are the hopeful, resilient and fiercely generous stories that I’m hearing this weekend.
Next Saturday is CERES’ biggest day of the year.
