About Wednesday Breakfast

Wednesday 23rd October 2019

7:00 - 3CR is proud to acknowledge the Kulin Nations as true owners and custodians of the lands from which we broadcast. We pay respect to their elders past and present and acknowledge that their sovereignty was never ceded and a treaty has yet to be signed. Current efforts to establish treaties are diminished by the Victorian State Government's decision to disregard First Nations' Sovereignty

7:15 - Write, Share, and Subscribe: The Digital Writers' Festival will be taking place between the 29th of October and the 2nd of November, but not in any city you know. Taking place almost entirely online, the DWF seeks to take a dive into the connection between writing and tech, bringing groundbreaking conversations to your computer or mobile device. Festival Artistic Director Izzy Roberts-Orr comes on the show to tell us all about the webinars, podcasts and more that you can access from the 29th of October at www.2019.digitalwritersfestival.com

7:30 - Save the Tarkine: Protesters have been ejected from a coup slated for immediate logging in the pristine forests of the Tarkine region, North Western Tasmania. Scott from the Bob Brown foundation comes on the show to underline the importance of this natural lanscape and what can be done to save it from the voracious Tasmanian State Government. Follow the campaign to save the Tarkine at www.bobbrown.org.au

7:45 - Popular Uprising in Iraq: Pier Moro from Asia Pacific Currents speaks with human rights activist Moustafa Awad about the recent and ongoing popular protests in Iraq, giving us context on what the people are fighting for. Listen to Asia Pacific Currents every Saturday 9am, produced by Australia-Asia Worker Links

8:00 - Against Our Oath: This weekend will see the debut of Against Our Oath, a feature documentary covering the medical profession in opposition to Australia's inhumane asylum-seeker policy. Covering recent events including the threatened repeal of the Medivac Bill, we speak to documentary director Heather Kirkpatrick. Find the documentary on Twitter at twitter.com/againstouroath for more information
