IF YOU have seen Adani protesters in Deloraine over the past few weeks, you may have wondered why Tasmanians are bothered by a proposed coal mine in Queensland.

You may also have seen this small group of concerned young locals, protesting on the Saturday of the Federal election. Too young to vote, but old enough to be concerned about how their elected representatives are going to manage their future.
