Elders Robbie and Mick Thorpe on 3CR’s Fire First discuss bushfires and the Law of the Land, while Mick shares his first hand account of the evacuation from the Lake Tyers Community on Gunai/Kurnai country. Also, an update from Chris Schuringa at Goongerah Environment Centre about what’s happening on the ground with ongoing fires destroying habitat, wildlife sanctuaries and homes of local front line forest protectors - just weeks after cautiously celebrating the Vic gov's pledge to end to native forest logging.
