With the Queensland Government’s trying to greenlight the Adani mine in the Galilee Basin, hope for whole: poets speak up to Adani is ever more relevant. Please feel free to use the poems in any Stop Adani and related campaigns, giving due acknowledgement to the authors of the poems.

The new issue of Plumwood Mountain is live. So grateful to our guest editor Jill Jones and all the poets for a fantastic issue thinking things.

I am looking forward to this conference in April 2019. The committee, chaired by Joseph Camilleri and of which I am part, has lots to do between now and then, but it will be worth it. More information can be found here: http://vox.divinity.edu.au/event/earth-peace-conference/ and bookings can be made here: https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=432955&

Early bird rates are available until early February 2019.

The conference brings together Indigenous speakers, ecological feminists, international specialists in non violence and peace, scholars and activists, to revision discourse and policy toward a Just and Ecologically Sustainable Peace.
