I am reliably informed that some people call Hume Coal, by nasty words.
Why? They turned up late in the afternoon and tried to enter the blockaded property.
What is it which is so hard to understand? The farmers of Sutton Forest have collectively "Locked the Gate" against Hume Coal and POSCO. They want to protect their land and water, and not see these assets destroyed for short-term profit, especially not for a foreign company.
Kim's father was a WW11 fighter pilot and no doubt she picked up a bit of the vernacular from him.
I know she inherited his fighting spirit.
So, when it eventually came to pass, Hume Coal, (the agents of the Korean invaders POSCO) tried to cross the blockade, fortunately Kim was there to Shoo them away.
