Introducing the Greens NSW Animal Welfare and Protection Working Group!
Animal welfare and protection is set to be the next big justice movement...
By Senator Christine Milne, Leader of the Australian Greens
How do we build an economic system that serves the needs of people and nature, both for today and for tomorrow?
The economy is a tool; a tool we humans invented – like democracy and politics – to help govern our relationships between each other, and between ourselves and the world we live in. If our economic tools are not getting the outcomes we want, making us happy, safe, healthy, better educated and fulfilled and protecting and preparing our country for an increasingly uncertain future in a world on track to be 4 degrees warmer, then it is time our economic tools changed.
Senator Lee Rhiannon on The Drum
"As commentators pick over the Labor-Greens relationship and the implications of the Melbourne by-election, it is timely to remember that the progressive side of politics share many commitments to address social justice, equality and environmental protection.
Building a more active and united progressive Left voice in Parliament, as well as strong social movements, is the key to getting runs on the board. But right now, unity is in short supply as Labor and the Greens are competing for a number of inner-city seats that were once Labor's heartland."

Greens MP Jamie Parker has today criticised the O'Farrell government for gagging debate on its Election Funding, Expenditure and Disclosures Amendment Bill.
"The government today closed the debate and prevented several members, including myself, from debating this important reform," said Mr Parker.
"This gag undermines the government's claim of being committed to transparency.
"The Greens NSW have campaigned for more than a decade to end all corporate donations to political parties.
Former speaker of the NSW Legislative Assembly Richard Torbay has been directly linked to the lifting of the heritage listing on a property owned by a major campaign donor.

Allowing political donations to be made by employees and board members of real estate development corporations and tobacco, gambling and alcohol companies would take NSW back to the bad old days of polices determined by cash gifts, according to Greens NSW MP John Kaye.
