  • Iconic forests protected as state reserves

    The Tasmanian Greens Leader Nick McKim MP today welcomed the formal gazetting of the first tranche of more than 95,000 hectares of forests reserved, as required by the Tasmanian Forests Agreement Act (2013).

    The Tasmanian Greens today welcomed tripartite acknowledgement that Tasmania’s national parks should remain sacrosanct from logging, mining and grazing.

Almost two million Australians voted for The Greens in the 2010 federal election and support is growing fast!

The Greens provide a real alternative to the tired, cynical politics of Labor and the Liberal party. Unlike the two old parties, The Greens have a proud (and Tasmanian) history of standing up for what is right, not just what is easy or what polls well.

The Greens are much more than an environmental party. While promoting meaningful and common-sense solutions to ensure future generations of Australians have clean air, clean water and clean soil, The Greens are also working in many other areas to champion integrity, decency and fairness.

As well as representing constituents, The Greens speak on behalf of those who wouldn’t otherwise get much of a say inside parliament: children, refugees, students, individuals and families living in poverty and, of course, our natural environment.
