David Mcevoy

When David Mcevoy last spoke to Green Left in January, he and three friends had barely escaped Cobargo with their lives. He spoke to Suzanne James about recovering from trauma during COVID-19 and his hopes and fears for the future of the historic town.

The small New South Wales town of Cobargo was devastated by bushfires around New Year's Day.

David Mcevoy, an environment and LGBTI activist, was visiting a friend in Cobargo, NSW, on New Year’s Eve when the catastrophic bushfires hit the historic town. Green Left’s Rachel Evans talked to him about his escape from the firestorm and the community’s resilience.
