This week's show is about the Djapwurrung Embassy, established to protect sacred trees threatened with destruction, north of Ballarat in Victoria. The state government want to cut down over 3000 trees as part of the Western Highway duplication project, including trees sacred to the Djapwurrung first nation. There has been a strong resistance with three camps set up to stop the road works and protect the trees, known as the Djapwurrung embassy.
