FROM THE CONVENORS

The Australian Greens achieved constitutional change at the Australian Greens National Conference on a sunny weekend in Canberra.

 

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

We’re living in a time of renewed Government efforts to intrude, observe and monitor the private lives of ordinary Australians. The state is seeking total transparency for the population and complete secrecy for itself. Senator Scott Ludlam joined the Green Institute to talk about what the Abbott Government’s proposed metadata retention regime will mean for our rights and freedoms in Australia.

So, upon waking up this morning and checking my Facebook newsfeed, one article kept popping up again and again – “Australian Government investment in science reaches 30-year low.” Honestly, I don’t think anyone should be too surprised. 

FROM OUR MPS

Australia’s economic landscape is changing, with or without the Abbott government. The divestment movement proves that Australians won’t be left behind.

PARTY NEWS

Lots happening in Queensland, with a new State director, new Convenor and 89 lower house seats to fill before the election early next year — all while campaigning to save the iconic Reef.

EMPLOYMENT AND VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

The Federal Government provides funds to the Australian Greens under the Australian Political Parties for Democracy Program (APPDP). These funds are managed for the Australian Greens by its International Development Committee (IDC).

The IDC is currently seeking applications from individuals to take up three voluntary “expert” roles with the IDC.

AND IN OTHER NEWS…

“Coal is good for humanity, coal is good for prosperity, coal is an essential part of our economic future, here in Australia, and right around the world,” says Mr Abbott — but the rest of the world is moving in the opposite direction. 

Following National Conference, held over a lovely sunny weekend in Canberra, we're pleased to welcome the new raft of amazing folks who've stepped into office bearer positions for the Party.
