As bushfires have been raging across Australia since October last year, cities have been blanketed in toxic smoke. What are the health impacts of this? And how might workers respond to this new environmental health crisis?
On today’s show, workers responding collectively to bushfire pollution, and looking for a working class environmentalism.
Guests: Elizabeth Humphrys (UTS); Katherine Barraclough (Doctors for the Environment Australia); Bradly Dunn (dock worker and MUA delegate); Adam Mayers (public sector worker and CPSU delegate)
