Interviews & Discussions

Pre-recording of Green Left Show #14: “Why Nuclear is not the solution” which features former Green Left editor Simon Butler answering the "left" argument that progressives should support nuclear power as a climate solution. You can view the program here.

Interview with IPAN (Independent and Peaceful Australian Network) chairperson Annette Brownlie about Australia’s hosting of the Talisman Sabre military exercises where over 17,000 soldiers including 8,000 U.S. military personnel and nearly 800 from other countries will descend on Australia to conduct war manoeuvres from July 18-31 and why it will have the consequences of making the Pacific region a more militarised and dangerous place and why anti-war activists should be opposed to it. You can listen to the individual interview here.

Interview with Leo Crnogorcevic a student at Monash University and member-elect of the Monash Student Association Student Affairs Committee about the recent moves by the Monash Student Association (MSA) to ban in-person campaigning for the upcoming student elections in September and why it’s a anti-democratic move that will heavily favor incumbents and the pretense of using the COVID-19 pandemic is hypocritical given that the ruling group that runs the student association (Together) regularly organises and supports in-person social events on campus and there has been no similar attempt to restrict those activities. You can listen to the individual interview here.
