Acting Up! - 45 Years of FoE - Walking tall amongst giants - FoE's work in forests

Tuesday, 12 November 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Celebrating 45 years of Friends of the Earth. Walking tall amongst giants - FoE's work in forests. Friends of the Earth came to forests later in the game and was strong from the 1990s via old growth forests campaigns. We worked to critique plantations, break down the greenies vs loggers dynamic by working with unions (Earthworker experiment), and bringing in Indigenous voices. FoE helped to set up the Forest Stewardship Council, and further sharpened our holistic approach. Presenter: Megan Williams. Guests: Fiona York, Martin Daly, Anthony Amis.

Friday 9:00am to 10:00am
Ratbags, Peaceniks and Agents of Change. Resistance radio that explores the movements that made us, drawing from the activist archives through to voices of resistance today. We take you under the hood to see how collectives and campaigns are formed, mobilise people, work cooperatively to transform systems of oppression and are sustained over time.
