First up today we are joined by Scott Drummond, Head of Policy and Practice at VAADA - the peak body representing publicly-funded AOD services in Victoria. In the following interview, we will be discussing in detail the rejection of a Medically Supervised Injecting Room (MSIR) in Melbourne's CBD, as well as the newly announced $95 Million AOD 'Statewide Action Plan', and what this means for the future of AOD treatment services.//

Native Title Rockets writer, director and producer and campaign coordinator Rochelle (Rocky) Humphrey joins us today to speak about the campaign led by Senior Kokatha Elder Aunty Suzanne Coleman Haseldine to defend Kokatha Country from Southern Launch's harmful rocket testing activities at the Koonibba Test Range. This week, Southern Launch plans to test rockets over Yellabinna Reginal Reserve and Yumburra Conservation Park, proceeding without thorough consultation with First Nations or appropriate Environmental Impact Statements and raising widespread concern about the impacts on sacred cultural sites and Mallee bushland. Donate to the West Mallee Protection campaign here, and follow along on Instagram for more information about the upcoming Rocket Wreckers fundraising rave and other events.//


In our final segment today, we are going to hear an excerpt from a conversation with Larrakia, Kungarakan, Gurindji and French writer and performer Laniyuk. Thursday Breakky co-host and Women on the Line presenter Priya spoke to Laniyuk in February this year about the ongoing campaign to return Lee Point to Larrakia Care, as well as the history of the Australian and US defence forces' militarised occupation of Larrakia Country. You’ll also hear from several Larrakia women - Jamilah Mills, Arbei Talbot, Hayley Mcadam, Aunty Aly Mills, and Arbei Adjrun - who have lent their voices and stories to the fight, using audiovisual storytelling as a medium to convey the significance of Larrakia people’s relationship with Country as a foundation for community and cultural strength, and to ensure Larrakia futures. To hear the full interview, go to And if you're living on or around Larrakia Country, we encourage you help protect sacred land and to get down to Lee Point today!//
