What I discover intriguing is that the Extinction Riot local weather protest was so small. However maybe even South Australians are beginning to get fed up with the difficulties of being Australia’s most dedicated greens.

I’ve a vivid reminiscence of financial hardship from my go to to South Australia two years in the past.

Two charity volunteers, off responsibility firemen, had been promoting calendars in a procuring centre, to boost cash for emergency companies. I didn’t desire a calendar (footage of half bare guys sporting fireman hats shouldn’t be my factor), however I needed to donate to a worthy trigger.

To my shock one of many firemen held open a giant pocket sewn into the highest of his trouser leg. I requested “the place is your assortment tin?”

The fireman defined “We don’t use assortment tins anymore. Too many thieves maintain snatching the tins and operating off with them.”

It is a current change. In most locations in Australia, firemen and different charities nonetheless use assortment tins. However in South Australia, absolutely the epicentre of Australia’s local weather motion, emergency service volunteers use particular pockets sewn to their garments to gather donations, to forestall swarms of thieves from operating off with the charity cash.
