[22:14] We listen to DT Zellanach’s speech at the solidarity march on Tuesday 10th September outside Parliament House on Tuesday 10th, demanding for the government to halt plans to abolish the sacred birthing trees and the proposed removal of hunderds of other trees. DT Zellanach is a Djab Wurrung warrior who has been heavily involved in the fight to protect the sacred birthing trees on Djab Wurrung Country.


[35:09] Mozhgan Moarefizadeh, an activist, paralegal and community organiser as well as cofounder of the Refugees and Asylum Seeker Information Centre discusses the recent protests outside the Australian Consulate and the UNHCR in Indonesia. Protesters are campaigning for better rates of resettlement, with many refugees now facing prospects of no resettlement for 20 years. The protests also come as a result of reductions in funding from the Australian Government to the International Organisation of Migration.


[1:00:56] Professor Carl Grodach, director of Urban Planning and Design at Monash University speaks to us about the patterns of industrial land usage and the changing nature of industry towards smaller companies. With many large industrial land areas to be redeveloped, Carl emphasizes the importance of maintaining a diversity of land uses and users in order to create more livable cities.
