In today's edition, we open with Australia and the massive climate march in Sydney, attended by thousands of people keen to express their anger over the government's inaction when it comes to the environment. There frustration is heightened by the fact that over a hundred bushfires continue to burn, many out of control, forcing citizens to evacuate.
Elsewhere in the programme, we look at the crisis in France's oyster sector in Brittany where some 200 shellfish farmers have been banned from selling their products due to a contamination caused by untreated sewage.
We'll find out why the Indian government has allowed access to the disputed region of Kashmir to 15 foreign envoys who will meet with army, politicians, civil society groups and journalists. The region was stripped of it’s special status in August last year.
We'll also hear an extract of La Mossa, a French group of 5 women who sing polyphonic chants, our special guests on this week's World Music Matters podcast.
