Social Justice

READ WHAT OUR CLASS THINKS ABOUT THE PALM OIL INDUSTRIES IN INDONESIA AND MALAYSIA

 

We thought the video clip about palm oil was very tragic. Orangutans are becoming endangered because their habitat is being destroyed through the growing of palm oil trees. When we thought about the problem we realized it was a social justice issue.

We think Tony Abbott should meet with the Prime Minister of Indonesia and Malaysia to ask them to stop growing palm oil trees. We would like them to think of another industry that they could develop, so that Indonesians and Malaysians will have money to live. We could assist Indonesia and Malaysia by helping them to develop another industry. That way, our wealthy country could assist a poor country.

We think everyone should watch this video clip. The link is below.
