Seattle Community activist Craig Thompson.
Near downtown Seattle, a prosperous American city, home of Boeing and Microsoft , there is an encampment of homeless people in a strip of Forrest known as The Jungle.
The homeless have gathered there since the early 1930s. On a day known as "Giving Tuesday" .. a day to acknowledge the less fortunate, we'll talk to a community activist about who lives near "The Jungle".
3:30 Wellington Underwater Harbour Cleanup
Every fine Wellington weekend, the waterfront is full of folk enjoying the harbour. What they don't see, though, is the rubbish that gets thrown or blown into the sea. But once a year, the city's dive community gets together for an underwater clean up, to bring up some of the litter that accumulates on the sea floor. And as Alison Ballance discovers when she takes her kayak along to join in, they're finding everything from skateboards to traffic cones and laptop computers.
