Crossing the Divide - TVE programme (2004)
In a two-part programme, Earth Report talks to four environmental activists who have become leading politicians. Their backgrounds could not be more different, but they have all used their green campaigning, as a springboard into politics. Earth Report finds out what motivated them to become politicians, and asks them if they believe they made the right move joining the political establishment? In Part 1 we meet Wangari Maathai, founder of the Kenya's Greenbelt reforestation movement, who became a government minister, and we meet Tuenjai Deetes, the Thai Senator who made her name as an environmental campaigner.
