Russian Dissident, Vladimir Slivyak of Ecodefense on Safeguarding our Planet

Published

on

This is the full interview with Vladimir Slivyak.  The versions for Television and Radio are formatted for time.

On Sunday, May 1, 2022, Mobilized’s Jeff Van Treese II interviewed Vladimir Slivyak for our Broadcast TV series to air on Free Speech TV.  The interview will air via Broadcast, Satellite and Internet on FSTV starting May 13, 2022.

We didn’t want to embargo the conversation for two weeks and felt that the audio version could also be shared easily.

From the Right Livelihood website:

Vladimir Slivyak is one of Russia’s most committed and knowledgeable environmentalists, who has been spearheading important grassroots campaigns against environmentally damaging practices for decades. He has stopped projects related to the exploitation of fossil fuels, the use of nuclear power and coal, and the shipment of radioactive waste from abroad.

As co-chairman and co-founder of Ecodefense, one of Russia’s leading environmental organisations for decades, Slivyak has worked extensively on reducing environmental risks, mitigating the climate crisis and promoting renewable energy in Russia.

Led by Slivyak, Ecodefense was the first environmental group in Russia to start an anti-coal campaign in 2013, which helped to empower local communities suffering from the impacts of coal mining and transportation. Connecting local communities around the country and information sharing led to a rapid growth of anti-coal protests in various parts of Russia.

Slivyak has also opposed Russia’s promotion of nuclear energy both at home and abroad. These enormous successes have proven that even in authoritarian Russia, grassroots activities can effectively challenge government-backed projects.

In recent years, Slivyak and Ecodefense have been targeted by Russian authorities for their work. However, Slivyak has stayed the course heartened by the growing influence of young climate activists. Standing with them, he is committed to ushering in a cleaner and more sustainable future for Russia and the world.

Forest defenders in Atlanta / Corporate media failures on climate change

Published

on

Although there are no old-growth trees involved (as in some Western regions), Atlanta now has its own forest-protection organization. In the first segment of this week’s show, Eleanor speaks with a member of Defend the Atlanta Forest about the group’s purpose and motivation.

In the second half of the show, Eleanor and Mickey discuss how corporate media have under-reported and mis-reported stories involving climate change.

Notes: Credits:

“Coyote” is a member of Defend the Atlanta Forest. The organization aims to protect a 500-acre parcel of the city’s historic South River Forest from development plans that would turn part of the woods into a police training center, and another part into a movie studio. Coyote explains how the conflict over the forest involves multiple inter-related issues. The group’s web site is www.defendtheatlantaforest.com
