We’re joined by Jen Perry, one of the main organisers of the Cruelty Free Festival WA, for this entire episode. We discuss this festival and how it puts into practice our support for intersectionality – bringing together a wide range of human rights, environmental and animal rights causes. We also discuss the recent protests against shark culling and linking opposition to the shark cull to a broader animal rights philosophy, The Sistah Vegan Project, avoiding gender stereotypes when discussing attitudes towards animals (Jen is no “cow hugger”!), critiques of term ‘cruelty-free’, and why all progressives should go to Berlin and the ICAS Oceania conference. To find out more about the Cruelty Free Festival, you can read an interview with Jen about the festival on Viva la Vegan! and you can also hear Nick discuss the festival on Team Earthling.

Dr (Mother!) Theresa Petray joins us on this episode to discuss Indigenous self-determination in education and beyond. We discuss her article ‘Punishing Truancy is not the Answer in Indigenous Communities’, Chris Graham’s article ‘Prime Minister for Indigenous Affairs? Hardly’ and #whiteproverbs. You can see Theresa’s list of publications here and we also encourage you to check out her Tropical Vegan website.

We open the episode with a discussion on Invasion Day and Aldi’s racist t-shirts being pulled. We speak out against animal advocates trying to “veganise” racist holidays like Invasion day rather than boycotting them and creating coalitions with Indigenous people. For more on Invasion Day, listen in to our 22nd episode and Team Earthling’s 110th. We then play Dennis Simmons’s talk from the event ‘What Next for the Australian Left?’ on some of the negative impacts of the Abbott government on Indigenous people and others, followed by Celeste Liddle’s talk on Constitutional recognition for Indigenous people, from the Social Change – Intersectionality or Bust! event by Intersectionality Now.

Other stuff covered on the episode is decolonisation, our latest ‘Find from the Street’, “capitalist” shopping lists, our 2013 WordPress report, the killing of sharks in Western Australia, Nick’s interview with Dr Will Tuttle on his speaking tour of Australia and Aotearoa, Queer Punx podcast and Survival Day events around Australia. We also encourage people to check out our episode on marriage and contact us if you’d like to contribute to our upcoming episode on alternative weddings.
