Mining is at the forefront of climate change, and the opposition to it is the nexus of indigenous and environmental struggles. A prime example of this is Ecuador. It’s one of the most bio-diverse countries on earth, but it’s people and environment are under threat as mining companies - many of them from Australia - are swooping in. 

From Ecuador to Australia, miners, their financiers and governments are determined to destroy this planet in their pursuit of profit. Blockade IMARC Alliance are organising a mass civil disobedience protest against the conference. 

Guests: Anthony Amis (Melbourne Rainforest Action Group); Maria Soupos (Blockade IMARC Alliance).
