A mini bus full of awesomeness visited me today, fresh faced and full of love for the Clarence River in New South Wales.
An amazing group of young’uns (young to me!) led by Monique Upton, popped into AELA House for a cuppa tea and important conversations. They are building a community movement – with Indigenous and non-indigenous friends and colleagues within their region – to defend their river from unwanted mining activities. They also interviewed me for some sound-bytes for the film they’re making, about their precious River.
Earth-centred strategies for the Clarence River and it’s peoples, and the rights of the living world, are now on the bubble, and I look forward to working with these inspiring young people and Earth defenders.
