Building an anti-colonial environment movement

Sunday, 17 March 2024 - 11:00am to 11:30am
A large group of people crowded at the entrance of an open-walled mess hut at ASEN 2024 Training Camp. They're gathered around a banner that says Land Back and has the Aboriginal and Palestinian flags painted on it.

On today’s program, you'll hear a selection of conversations from and about this year's Anti-colonial Student Environment Network (ASEN) Training Camp, featuring zinemaker and ASEN organiser Willow, veteran environmental justice and Indigenous rights activist Uncle Winiata Puru, and Kokatha Mula Elder and anti-nuclear resistance leader Aunty Sue Coleman-Haseldine. Our thanks to Rochelle Humphrey and Genetic Circus Productions for the recording of Aunty Sue's talk.

The 2024 ASEN Training Camp ran from 14-17 January at Camp Eureka on Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Country, and was hosted by the Victorian branch (VicSEN). The Camp brought together over 100 activists and organisers from around the continent to share skills and strengthen our collective work towards liberation from colonial violence and climate catastrophe.

Note: the ASEN membership voted during this year's AGM, held during the training camp, to change 'Australian' to 'Anti-colonial' in its name.
