About this Episode

Mark joined Daniel Bleakley on the steps of the Victorian Parliament for a chat about the past 7 days of his hunger strike, the global XR hunger strike, his methods and self-care through this experience, and much more.

From Daniel;
"Day 7. Seventh day of Extinction Rebellion Hunger strike. Starting to feel a bit weak but still focused. Today I'm continuing to request a meeting between members of the Andrews Government and a group of XR representatives to discuss our demands which are:

  1. That the Government come together to declare a climate emergency now.

  2. That the Government commit to net zero emissions by 2025. To avoid a further deepening of the Climate Crisis.

  3. That the Government install a citizens assembly to help guild the transition to a safe sustainable future.

Our children don't deserve the future that they're facing right now..."
