7.10am We heared Nasser's longform conversation with Ihab Abu Ibrahim, a Palestinian activist and founder of The Sit-Intifada, about his family enduring conditions of the 1948 Nakba and their refugee camp experience, why he started his protest at Parliament House steps, the importance of continual protesting of the ongoing complicity of governments and corporations in the genocide of Palestinians


7.30am Grace caught up with Nick Rose, the director of Sustain the Australian network on food justice and the community events that are happening soon in Naarm/Melbourne. Sustain the Australian Network is the parent organisation of Oakhill food justice farm which is a community garden in Preston.


7.45am Jiselle Hanna from Accent of Women interviewed Aunty Rieo Ellis from Grandmothers Against Removals which is an organisation – actually started by Lidia Thorpe – that aims to end the removal of Aboriginal children, or at the very least, place them with family members. GMAR Victoria was established in recognition of the disproportionate representation of Aboriginal children in out-of-home-care. They’re all volunteers. They’re all Aboriginal grandmothers. GMAR’s volunteers understand first hand the impacts of colonisation on Aboriginal families and seeks to mitigate these in order to keep families together. You can listen to Accent of women every Tuesday from 8:30 to 9:00am.


8.00am Camp Sovereignty update


8.05am James Whitmore from Out of the Blue had a conversation with Dr Leonardo Guida from the Australian Marine Conservation Society about the endangered Maugean Skate which is a unique species of fish found only on Tasmania's west coast. It's population crashing in recent years, the Federal Government has announced a plan to breed the skate in captivity to save it from extinction. Research shows that one of the biggest threats to the skate is salmon farming, and the plan says nothing about dealing with that.


8.20am Community Annoucements
