Djab Wurrung Embassy + Student Strike 4 Climate

Monday, 25 March 2019 - 8:30am to 9:00am

This week on the program we bring you an interview with Aunty Sandra Onus speaking from the Djab Wurrung Embassy in Victoria, and also some coverage of the Melbourne School Strike 4 Climate held on Friday March 15.

The Djab Wurrung Heritage Protection Embassy was founded in mid 2018 to lead a grass roots protection action to preserve Djab Wurrung heritage threatened by the Western Highway Duplication project near Ararat. Last week (w/c 18 March) pressure on the Embassy ramped up as police threatened to make way for works to begin.  

Women on the Line spoke with Aunty Sandra on Thursday 21st March. As of publication today the Embassy are requesting support and for people to come to camp as police pressure to start works is increasing once again.

This episode we also hear excerpts from speeches at the Melbourne School Strike 4 Climate and interviews with rally attendees by Dale Bridge from the Australian Council for the Defence of Government Schools.
