SUE JACKSON Therapist | Writer | Photographer | Activist

An avid blogger for the last fifteen years, I believe in the power of the word to change the world. I have participated in, and reported on, a range of protests during this period, including the successful East-West Link campaign and, more recently, our wonderful, home-grown Extinction Rebellion (XR). If you believe, like I do, that it is time for ordinary people to rise up in defence of the planet, I encourage you to explore this blog, share it with your networks, and – of course – take action.

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

Click image for greater clarity

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, 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
