SUE JACKSON Therapist/Writer/Photographer/Activist

Last year, as the unofficial blogger/photographer to the anti-East-West Link campaign, our battles were my blog's entire focus. But by Christmas, with the electoral win for people power and the dumping of the dud Tunnel, I was suddenly at a loss. What to write about now? Not sure yet. But there will be ongoing musings and images from this Australian life. So please leave a message. (No need to sign into an account.

To My Valentine: the Planet. 'Happy Divestment Day!'

Bill McKibben is a hero, as was obvious when in 2014 he was awarded the Right Livelihood Prize, aka the 'alternative Nobel'. He was the founder of 350.org, the world's first grassroots climate change movement. He is a powerful advocate of divestment from fossil fuels and tours the world arguing that the future is upon us and we need to accelerate our response to climate change.

And last night he was talking just around the corner - at the glorious Collingwood Town Hall.

Closer to home, Bill is adamant that the fight of our times is the battle to Stop Adani
