S2E17 Adani Coal Mine

In this episode I speak with a family of activists about the Adani coal mine and why it is being protested

Ben Laycock, Jacynta Walsh and their daughter Rilka Laycock-Walsh have each participated in different ways; Ben joined last year’s Adani convoy as lead by Bob Brown, Rilka has been protesting Adani with non violent direct action and all three have led a life of environmental activism.
