Global Climate Strike 2019

Thursday 26th September / presented by Danae Gibson Taylah Strano Will Backler

RTRFM 92.1 disrupted its usual broadcast last Friday, September 20, to take part in the Global Climate Strike.

The Global Climate Strike was formed in light of inaction on the parts of local and international politicians to announce a state of climate emergency, and to get the conversation moving on this incredible issue.

The day's programming featured a special live broadcast from the PICA bar near Perth's Cultural Centre from 10 to 11 AM, when the march started, as well as a special block of programming dedicated to interviews with climate activists from all backgrounds and a special edition of Revolver dedicated to socially conscious women in hip-hop.

On the day, Breakfast's Taylah Strano was at the strike in Perth speaking to artists and activists attending the event, including PVI Collective co-founder Kelli McCluskey, Cool Change Contemporary co-founder Jess Boyce, musician Steve Aaron Hughes, independent artist Alex Desebrock and RTRFM's own Danae Gibson, about what attending the strike means to them and what we collectively stand to lose.

As the strike was underway, the program played a selection of sound bites from an interview between youth climate activist Greta Thunberg and author and activist Naomi Klein, hosted by The Intercept ahead of the Global Climate Strike.

The program also included interviews with various people in the climate activism sphere about what we can do on a macro and micro level to combat climate change, including interviews hosted earlier in the week on The Mag with School Strike 4 Climate organiser Makaela Rowe-Fox, Conservation Council of WA spokesperson Paddy Cullen anti-nuclear activist Dr Helen Caldicott, bee keeper and Teenovator Luke De Laeter and Psychology For A Safe Climate founder and president Carol Ride.

The show also hosted new interviews forged with people attending the Global Climate Strike, including Greens WA Senator Jordon Steele-John, Extinction Rebellion WA's Annika DeRoy and Reuben Barclay, documentary director Damon Gameau,

The program also included excerpts from The Mag's Danae Gibson and Indymedia's Sarah Morrison talking to people of all ages who were attending the strike.
