AUDIO: Tim Gooden -- Trade unions’ support for the Ampilatwatja walk off by the Alyawarr people of the Northern Territory
Stick Together Radio Show (3CR)
On this week’s program, we interview Tim Gooden, secretary of Geelong Trades Hall Council about Australian unions’ support for the Ampilatwatja walk off by the Alyawarr people of the Northern Territory. Tim will tell of how unions are assisting the community to build sustainable houses and infrastructure, as the Northern Territory intervention has left their community with virtually no services.
We also interview Imogen Schoots Research Officer for the Electrical Trades Union about the campaign for an initiative that would put solar panels on every roof in Australia.
