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 || 

[21:33] - Extinction Rebellion: With a new Australian faction started last October, Extinction Rebellion (XR) aims to generate new decentralised movements of people acknowledging and acting on the climate emergency. Violet and Andy came into the studio to tell us about XR and how you can get involved in pushing for completely renewable energy by 2025. Their next organising meeting is open to all at the Kathleen Syme Library, Carlton on April 6, 2pm. Check out XR's website at ausrebellion.earth or find them on facebook || 

Muslim solidarity Rally: Last Tuesday, we met on the steps of the State Library to prostest white supremacy and to show solidarity with our Muslim friends and family. In a followup to last week's coverage, this week we heard from [43:34] Trades Hall secretary Luke Hilakari, [54:16] NUW rep at the Chemists Warehouse strike Husain Alqatari, and [59:43] Member for Melbourne Adam Bandt (Australian Greens) || 

[1:09:20] - Green New Deal? Friends of the Earth member Pat tells us about a recent community forum on the idea of the Green New Deal, a raft of policies and aspirations taking the American left by storm. The Deal includes policies around transition of power sources and the protection of workers' rights in a changing economy. What can we learn from this Green New Deal here in so-called Australia? || 

The Djab Wurrung Heritage Protection Embassy still needs more volunteers to join at camp. Top Camp is located on Warrayatkin Road, off the western Highway between Ararat and Buangor, 2hrs from Narrm (Melbourne). If you can make it, why not head up and show your support? The Djab Wurrung traditional owners are protecting their sacred trees and sites from VicRoads and the Victorian Government, who seek to destroy Djab Wurrung heritage for the sake of your driving convenience
