the Punjab Govt’s plans

A new murree is being developed. Several hundred trees are going to be cut down. All the experts have rejected the proposal, but the Punjab Government is not listening. A certain unnamed family must get richer, and to hell with the trees. They are going to go ahead with this.

I feel sick to my gut. Do you feel sick of the helplessness and apathy too, or is it just me? This affects ME, dammit, I need to have a say in this. And I’ve decided to hell with staying quiet and going to bed thinking, “Oh, how sad,” and waking up the next morning and going about my day’s work. I’m going to do something about this. Who’s in?

    ahh, been happening for so long in northern areas. Every year i go there and find more n more empty areas, with very few or no trees. They have almost destroyed Sat Para lake in Skardo by building a dam there. A long list.

    What are you prepared to do?
