S3 E23 School Strike: Fund our Future

This final episode for Season 3 contains a plethora of voices all asking for the same thing: fund our future, not gas.

The Australian School Strike for Climate crew have struck again.  Just before our state was locked down due to another covid outbreak thousands of students walked out of school and gathered in major cities and country towns.  Allie went to the train station early in the morning to chat with some of those travelling into Melbourne for the strike and also recorded the rally that happened in Castlemaine later that day.

This episode was released during Reconciliation Week, a major event in the Australian calendar – it happens every year from 27th May to 3rd of June.

These dates commemorate two significant moments in Australia’s history. The successful 1967 referendum, which fundamentally changed the rights and legal status of indigenous Australians, and the High Court Mabo decision which was a landmark case around first nations land rights.


This episode was created in 2021 as part of a series called Saltgrass: Turning the Goldfields Green, which was created with support from MAINfm and the Community Broadcasting Foundation.
