GetUp and Environmental Movements stand united in denial of population growth

Quote:

“GetUp sees population stabilisation as being somewhat conflicting with GetUp’s desire to see increased refugee intakes in Australia, and therefore its messaging may become blurred.”

So GetUp chooses to omit reference to:

  • Extreme population growth driven by mass migration of relatively wealthy opportunists into Australia at the expense of refugees
  • The fact that many Key Performance Indicators of the Australian economy indicate that extreme population growth may be damaging both the economy and the environment, making Australia less able to increase both philanthropic foreign aid and refugee intake

GetUp, at its discretion, seems intent on not addressing whether extreme population growth is actually a root cause of the global humanitarian and environmental problems it wants to solve.
