Mr COHEN (ROBERTSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is the Prime Minister aware that 22nd April was celebrated by millions of Americans as Earth Day and that this massive protest was against the poisoning of the atmosphere, pollution of rivers and streams, destruction of wildlife and the total rape of man's environment? Is he aware that vast numbers of Australians are similarly concerned with the growing evidence of despoliation of Australia's environment? Would he support such a demonstration by a protest movement or a moratorium if one were to be organised in Australia, or does he agree with the delegate at the Continental Congress of the Daughters of the American Revolution who said: 'Subversive elements plan to make American children live in an environment that is good for them'?
