Local Heroes gives voice to activists who have struggled over the last twenty years to change agendas at local, state, national and international levels. The book looks at ten issues, including lead pollution in inner city Sydney, heavy metal contamination in Port Kembla, the Coode Island chemical storage plant in Victoria, the Smogbusters campaign in Brisbane, and the fruit fly chemical trauma in Far North Queensland.
