HOW TO SURVIVE WITH REGENERATIVE CULTURE

Resist! Part 2

In this episode we looked at how climate movement embraced direct action. In the previous week scenes spread over television screens across Australia of the IMARC Blockade was a manifestation of a movement that has collectively realised that the traditional avenues of power and influence have failed within this country at generating anything like meaningful action on climate change.We talked to representatives of concentrations of direct action namely APSARA SABARATNAM from Blockade IMARC and Rilka Laycock-Walsh from the ADANI Blockade. We gained an understanding about what these activists hope to achieve, why they consider direct action so important and what life is like on the ground of these historically vital actions.As a change in tone we also spoke with Calum McFarlane:Calum is a father of two boys who has thought and written very deeply on the subject of climate change and being a parent. In particular his piece "IF YOU’RE FREAKING OUT ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE (ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE A PARENT)…"

Resist! Extinction Rebellion, despair and the Pacific Climate Warriors

When we look back at 2019 I think it will be the moment the tide began to turn. From this year on we will no longer be tackling widespread apathy within the population but we will be directly taking on the system, the politicians and the corporations that are pushing us towards oblivion. Greta Thunberg - the woman of the moment has called out platitudes and empty gestures. Her uncompromising demand for action has rung out around the world and her demand for action has been heard by ordinary people with everything to loose.Following on from last week's show where Viv took us to the climate strike in Sydney - I chatted with Jane Morton a very eloquent spokesperson from Extinction Rebellion, I also had in the Studio Cindy Makabory from Pacific Climate Warriors who spoke at the strike about Australia's role in the potential cultural extinction of Pacific island nations - something we take very seriously on our show. Between each of the interviews I played some sound bites I got from the climate strike - ordinary people operating with great passion and conviction.But first on was journalist and academic Dr Marc Hudson who has monitored the climate movement for years. He has been documenting widespread despair amongst the academic and scientific community who have had to bear the weight of knowledge and look on as we accelerated toward the abyss.

SYDNEY CLIMATE STRIKE AND NT POWER OF COUNTRY TOUR

September 30thSYDNEY CLIMATE STRIKEProduced by Vivien Langford in Sydney. Thanks to Michaela and Andy in MelbourneSpeakers:Gadrian Hoosen – Garawa and Yanyuwa man from Boroloola, Pacific Warriors, Jean Hinchcliff, Tommy John Herbert MUA, President of Teachers’ Federation, ASU,PSA, ETU, CFMMEU, APHEDA, Parents and Grandparents and a Concerned Scientist .Music: Ready by Montaigne and New Orleans by David RovicsIt felt like an historic turning point. Not just the 100,000+ in the Domain but the new energy in the climate movement. One of themarshallswas Jenny, a climate activist I knew from 12 years ago. She reminded me of the street theatre we used to do down at Circular Quay, dramatising the climate emergency. I’d borrow a polar bear suit from a Greenpeace Giant and was glad of the disguise as I didn’t want to be recognised from my workplace. I had piles of fur around my ankles but Japanese Tourists would put their arms around me and want a cute photo. Most people didn’t understand at all that we were doing a “Die In” Climate Change was not mainstream. Now, Jenny said, she went to organising meetings and”it’s all new people”.The kaleidoscope has turned and a new coalition of students and workers, parents and professionals, has unified around the disbelief that we are still making profits out of an economy that is creating catastrophe.The media reported this as a children’s event and missed the fact that unions and churches were there in great numbers. The students have been making allies with unionists and have been on a steep learning curve about thedire realities of striking for most workers in Australia. As I wove through the crowd I learned that many workers are affected by climate change already. You will hear from a ship builder working inside the metal hulk on a heatwave day, of the firemen and forest workers confronted by uncontrollable fires in areas where they are running out of water. Factory workers processing milk are losing jobs because of the drought. Electricians working on solar farm installations are horrified at unskilled casuals working for $10 an hour and no regulation of the work.There were hundreds of stories there to be toldAs we walked past the parliament I imagined a cynical sign in the sky “....Tell someone who cares!” because this new climate awareness of workers and young people does not seem to be registering among our leaders. You can send this podcast to any of them in case they are trying NOT to hear the message from the streets.https://www.3cr.org.au/beyondzeroPOWER OF COUNTRY TOURat Sydney Town HallMusic by Stuart Nuggett in Jingili Language –Bundurru (food)Speakers:Millie Telford –Seed Mob, Indigenous youth climate movementStuart Nuggett – Jingili Musician from Beetaloo BasinNicole Hutton – Garrawa woman from BoroloolaNaomi Hogan –Lock The Gate Alliance/Stop Origin Fracking the NTJulie Lyford –Groundswell Gloucester.

It’s time to take this fight all around the country”City people were urged to stand with our fellow citizens in remote parts of the NT. They cannot rally 100,000 climate activists, as we can in the cities, but we can support them by sending a message to Origin Energy and the NT government who lifted their moratorium on fracking for gas.It's not too late to bring it down again.Julie Lyfordencouraged the NT people from her experie
