S2E19 Friends of the Earth with Cam Walker

In this episode we speak with Cam Walker who has been working at Friends of the Earth (FoE) for 30 years and has been an activist for even longer than that.  If you want someone who really understands the push and pull, the nuance and dynamics of running a long term campaign for the environment Cam is your guy. Today I talk to him about Friends of the Earth, his life, what he sees as important in regional communities like central Victoria and what is the most important thing you can do today to help keep our government on track in this time of Covid 19 management and recovery.
