Environmentalist Brockovich wants to be an Oz citizenFebruary 11th, 2011 - 3:03 pm ICT by ANI
Sydney, Feb 11 (ANI): Environmental campaigner Erin Brockovich says she will seek to become a dual citizen of Australia and her native US.
Brockovich is so dedicated to green issues in Australia she is planning to apply for dual citizenship.
She said she was drawn to the country by the beauty of the wide brown land and the lush tropics in dire need of protection.
“I’m pushing in a good way for dual citizenship between the United States and Australia,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as saying.
“Sometimes it takes an outsider to come back in and just gently remind you of what you have that a lot of places don’t,” she added.
Brockovich came to public attention after actress Julia Roberts won an Academy Award for her portrayal of the battling mother-of-three who exposed a pesticide scandal in the San Francisco Bay area. (ANI)
