In this episode I speak with Castlemaine local, Kerry Calcraft, who spent her twenties protesting logging in Western Australia at Giblett forest. We discuss the training she got in Deep Ecology and Non Violent Direct Action and how that has impacted her life since then… including how it helps her during this Covid-19 pandemic and into the future as the climate emergency increases.
We also have a recycling tips segment at the end of the episode.
