Apparently not many of us. The majority of the land that we occupy is out of bounds - a massive 92% of our countryside and 97% of our rivers are hidden behind "no trespassing", "no public access" and "private property" signs. But who controls what land, for how long, for what purposes and for whose benefit, is all central to shaping our lives. Intrinsically linked to every other element, from our access to food, to the jobs we work, where (or if) we go to school and even how likely we are to get arrested.
In the 90th year since the landmark Kinder Scout Mass Trespass, we're speaking to voices at the forefront of the land justice movement to discover what fair access for all looks like and how we might get there. In this intro episode, we share some snippets from this journey from movement, to belonging, to healing, until we reached abundance. Featuring conversations with Disabled People Against Cuts, Traveller Pride, Land in Our Names, Healing Justice, Anne Matthews Trust, London Renters Union and KIONDO.
