Stopping Adani: An extremely brief history of blockading
Our first session explores the history of the #StopAdani Blockade, Camp Binbee, and other important blockades that have won positive social change in our history.
Speakers include long time organiser Anisa Rogers (who gravitates between Frontline Action on Coal, LASNET and XR VIC), musician, writer and broadcaster Andy Paine (Paradigm Shift Radio on 4ZZZ, Frontline Action on Coal) and friendly Galilee Rising organiser, Nic Dureau.
This session highlights key blockades that were successful in their attempt to stop work including sharing some of the rich history of occupations and blockades seeking to enshrine sovereignty for First Nations people across Australia and environmental protections.
