A15 Action's global economic blockade for Palestine, safe housing for Trans and Gender Diverse people, and exposing the digital footprint of Brenton Tarrant

Monday, 15 April 2024 - 7:00am to 8:30am

Welcome to another of the Monday Breakfast show, produced and presented in the studios of 3CR and hosted by Rob Harrison. 

First up we hear Cam and Andy of the Yeah Nah Pasaran show speak with academic Chris Wilson about the previously undiscovered digital footprint of the Australian killer who perpetrated massacres in Aotearoa in 2019.  You can hear more content from the Yeah Nah Pasaran Show on Thursdays from 4:30 to 5pm or click here to stream it digitally.

As the wheels of capitalism, imperialism and colonialism continue to spin, direct action is needed to blockade a global economy which is complicit in the genocide of Palestinians. Today, in cities across the globe, a series of coordinated actions will take place to do exactly that. Rob spoke with Nathalie, a passionate advocate, writer & creative from the SWANA region to talk further about the action. She is a proud descendant of a long line of resistance fighters & political leaders in the Levant. Arriving to this continent as a refugee, Nathalie has dedicated herself to fighting for the rights of marginalized peoples globally and for dismantling structural racism through storytelling, spoken word and staunch political action. Check out the Disrupt Wars Instagram page for more info on all the actions happening throughout Naarm/so-called Melbourne today, including: 

  • From 8AM on the steps of Victoria Parliament there will be a rally to get Elbit Systems out of so-called Victoria 
  • From 9:30: Blockade to shut down AW Bell at 145 Abbotts Rd, Dandenong South

  • From 12pm: BP out of Palestine rally in protest of the oil company's supply of fuel to Israel's military. The protest will occur at 717 Bourke St, Docklands

Following that we played James McKenzie of 3CR program In Ya Face’s conversation with Damien Patterson, Policy and Advocacy Officer for the Council to Homeless Persons about the need for more funding toward safer housing options for trans and gender diverse people, including a crisis housing facility. You can hear more of the In Ya Face show on Fridays from 4 to 5pm or at the link here.
