This episode features a talk from activist Sam Castro on challenging sexism within progressive movements and creating system change. This talk was recorded at the 2018 Students of Sustainability conference in Melbourne. Sam is an activist with Friends of the Earth and WACA, and has been on our podcast all the way back on episode 65, discussing direct action.

Some of the points that came up in Sam’s workshop that we have covered on previous episodes are call in versus call out culture and Men of Colour being more likely to be called out for sexism. We also covered the #MeToo movement on episode 191.

If you’d like to join in discussions on this topic and others, we encourage you to join us at the upcoming forum ‘Community as Activism: Building Community within the Animal Liberation Movement and Beyond’ by the Institute for Critical Animal Studies (ICAS) Oceania. This free event will feature sessions on transformative justice and #MeToo, as well as intersectionality in practice and building community. It will be held on Saturday 4 August, 1-5pm at Library at the Dock (107 Victoria Harbour Promenade, Docklands) – in Melbourne.

This episode also features a little bit of Adam Cardilini’s talk on the environmental impact of animal agriculture. This is from the workshop ‘Achieving Environmental Liberation Through Animal Liberation’ which Adam ran with Nick, also at the Students of Sustainability conference. You can listen to both of our talks from this workshop here and view Adam’s PowerPoint here and below. We also covered the environmental impact of animal agriculture on episode 171.
