Workers for Climate Action

Sunday, 20 September 2020 - 11:00am to 11:30am

At the beginning of the pandemic the Morrison Federal government announced the creation of the COVID commission. Stacked with mining and fossil fuel interests, it’s little surprise that now in September the government is pushing what it calls a ‘gas led recovery.’ But could a different COVID recovery be possible - or maybe even necessary?  

On this week's show we talk with Dylan Goldsworthy from Workers for Climate Action Melbourne, about why we need to be organising in our workplaces and across our unions to fight for a just and sustainable future.  

And then later in the show, it’s been 20 years since the protests against the World Economic Forum meeting in Melbourne, known as s11. We dig into the archives and listen back to 3CR’s coverage of the movements that came together with the message that another world is possible.  

Earth Matters #1262 was produced by Teishan Ahearne.
