  • Parties united to fight Greens’ anti-jumps campaign

    Greens MP Sue Pennicuik told State Parliament last week that a range of organisations including the RSPCA, Animal Liberation and the Humane Society International opposed jumps racing.

    “Every season horses continue to suffer horrific injuries or are killed in jumps racing events in Victoria,” Ms Pennicuik said.

    “This cruel and dangerous so-called sport for entertainment is a blight on Victoria. The government should listen to the majority of Victorians and ban it once and for all.”

  • Greens announce better hospital care for families

    The Victorian Greens announce their election commitment to construction of a dedicated Women’s and Children’s Centre at Sunshine Hospital, to provide a much needed maternity services for the booming number of births, and funding to reduce the children’s elective surgery wait list.

    “In the past decade there has been a 70% increase in the yearly number births in the western suburbs. This huge growth in demand means hospitals are bursting at the seams,” said Greens spokesperson on health Colleen Hartland MP.

  • Safer Advertising to Children

    The Victorian Greens announce their election commitment to protect children from harmful advertising by phasing out gambling, alcohol and junk food ads in outdoor spaces, including public transport and billboards, and from children’s sport.

    “Children and young people are impressionable and are easily influenced by advertising. Product association at this age can set up bad habits for a lifetime,” said Victorian Greens spokesperson on health, Colleen Hartland.

    “Voluntary codes on advertising and children are weak and not enforced. Change will only occur through law reform.”
