Under the cover of COVID

Sunday, 24 January 2021 - 11:00am to 11:30am

There’s so many things we had to stop and put on hold when COVID hit. But one thing that didn’t stop was the relentless resource extraction of mining and forestry.  
On today’s show we hear about two campaigns that are challenging governments who have been trying to use COVID as a cover for destruction.  
First up we hear from Yuyun Harmono, Climate Justice Campaign Manager at the Indonesian environmental network, WALHI.  
And then later in the show, Chris Schuringa from the Goongerah Environment Centre gives us an update on the fight to save East Gippsland forests in Victoria.  


Guests: Yuyun Harmono (WALHI Indonesia); Chris Schuringa (GECO)
