5 Apr 11: "This week we take a look at Indigenous resistance, the fight for country and autonomy – we speak to Leanne Edwards from the Lake Tyres Indigenous community in East Gippsland where a blockade has been established to prevent a government appointed administrator from entering the land. And we delve into the archives to hear from Eileen Wingfield and Nina Brown about the successful Irati Wanti campaign against a nuclear waste dump."
