Coming up this Sunday 24 June is the Gardening Show Radiothon. 3CR Gardening Show has a cult following and the best environmentally-friendly gardening tips in Melbourne. Going strong for 27 years, the show makes waking up early on Sunday morning worthwhile. The program features an expert panel including Millie Ross, Stephen Ryan, and Gwen and Rodger Elliot and is produced by long-time 3CR volunteer Pam Vardy. Call this Sunday between 7.30 and 10am and donate, then join us at the station at 21 Smith St Fitzroy after the show, 10am til 12noon, to pick up your prizes, have a cuppa and say G'day! 03 9419 8377.
The world is awash with digital communication, yet there’s never been such a lack of political alternatives. Information is the new commodity and truly alternative visions for justice, equity and sustainability remain elusive. Thankfully, community and alternative media continue to step into the void to fight for community justice, action and alternatives. Despite all that we know about the importance of representation, it is still a revolutionary act to put a mic in the hand of someone denied a voice, and more than four decades later 3CR Community Radio continues to do just that. Fight For Your Mic captures the station’s ongoing commitment to fighting for a better world through the medium of radio, and during our annual Radiothon fundraiser we ask all our supporters to donate so that we can stay radical and independent. Donate now or call the station on 03 9419 8377.
National Sorry Day is an annual event that has been held in Australia on 26 May, since 1998. On 26 May 1997, the Bringing Them Home report was tabled in Parliament. First Nations communities and organisations had been campaigning for an inquiry that would address the general public's ignorance of the history of forced removals because it was hindering the recognition of the needs of its victims and their families and the provision of services that they needed.
