Summary

"A few years ago, I became one of the founders of the llisu Dam Campaign, [dedicated to stopping] a government-backed project to build a dam in the Kurdish region of Turkey. This audio programme is a recording of a show I did about the campaign, the people, and the dam. The show was recorded days after we had found out that the campaign was a success. At the end of the show, many of those involved in the campaign piled onstage to celebrate: Kurds, environmentalists, human-rights campaigners, activists, lawyers, and crusty chums. It was quite an exciting and memorable night."

Inspired

I first became aware of Mark's work from his C4 shows, and to this day I try to never let an opportunity to hear his stuff pass by.

His ability to point out the ludicrous / unjust / bordering illegal / just plain selfish actions of so many of today's 'big corporations' (both business & government) has yet to be surpassed, and each time I hear him I am left wondering 'Why aren't I taking action like him?' so thought provoking are his words & deeds

Oh, and he's very very funny as well, so that helps.
