In this special episode, we have two contrasting stories. One from Jo Dodds, Bega Shire Councillor, who has been in Hong Kong for the record-smashing protests, on how one act of violence has warped a mass movement. Another from Knox, in eastern Melbourne, from a young man working to save a lake, and habitat for endangered species, from short-sighted development.

Lake Knox is a deep-water lake in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and is the habitat of an endangered species. The community is trying to stop development plans for the lake site, and in this episode you'll learn what they are trying, why it's important, and hopefully learn some lessons about how you can take action yourself in your own area.
