Description

Reporting on frontline environmental issues is the second most dangerous field of journalism after war reporting, and defending and organising can lead to a person being sued, criminalised, attacked, murdered or disappeared. Defending the living world and atmosphere that supports us all, should everyone’s fight, but much of the brunt is borne by indigenous peoples defending ancestral homelands at the heart of many conflicts. In this episode Lucy and Tom speak with Krystal Two Bulls, an Oglala Lakota/Northern Cheyenne woman from Lame Deer, Montana, a US military veteran and an organiser who was part of the resistance against the development of the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock. We find out how she deals with the dangers and how she sustains her work. This episode is essential listening for anybody protecting the planet, and organising or reporting today. If we want to step up, we must understand both what’s at stake and how the stories we tell and the words we use can turn us into an ally or a threat.
