Some Background Information

I have been an activist for 30+ years in environmental and social change groups in Australia. I have been a member of Friends of the Earth (Australia) since 1976, a member of the Anarres Books Collective (, and an editor with Melbourne Indymedia, Climate IMC, and Sydney IMC. I also network with other IMC activists in the Oceania region.

I have been posting stories and photo essays to Indymedia sites since the World Economic Forum visited Melbourne in September 2000. In May 2003 I joined the Melbourne Indymedia Collective. The Melbourne collective decided to close open publishing in June 2007.

The first Melbourne Indymedia collective discontinued publishing in 2007, but a new collective formed in 2009 which I am a member of, While Melbourne was closed I joined and was an active contributor to Sydney IMC.

In July 2003 I joined the www-features list, and after a few months was given admin rights to post features to the global site. My access to the site is still active. My activity on www-features tends to happen in spurts at least partly dependent on news from Australia/Oceania.

Amoung all my activism I somehow fit in time to cycle, work part-time and spend time with my children.
