Interviews and Discussion

Interview with Sue Bull, long-time climate activist involved in the Geelong Renewables not Gas campaign and member of Socialist Alliance discussing the energy crisis and why it has put the question of a publicly-owned energy industry back on the table. Sue Bull argued that it is the only way to keep good jobs and energy prices and to make a just transition to renewable energy. You can listen to the individual interview here.

Interview with Kamala Emanuel, long-time campaigner for abortion rights about what the overturning of Roe vs Wade within the United States means for Abortion Rights. Kamala argues that the right to decide whether or not to have children is fundamental, and that the push to ban abortion by the right isn't driven by concern for women, but about denying their fundamental rights.
