The Montara oil spill

The Montara oil field is in the Timor Sea, off the Northern coast of Western Australia. In 2009 it was the site of one of Australia's worst oil spills. Shortly after, oil and toxic dispersants showed up in West Timor where they caused an environmental and social disaster. On today's show we'll talk to Jane Hammond has made a film called 'A Crude Injustice' to bring attention to this issue. We'll also talk to Indonesian businessman Ferdi Tanoni who has been fighting tirelessly around this issue since 2009.
