  • Greens say changes in parole needed to stop increase in prison numbers

    "The Productivity Commission’s Report on an increase in prison numbers shows that the new state government must act now to reduce incarceration rates,” Greens spokesperson for Corrections, Sue Pennicuik, said today.  “A key priority should be to stop less serious offenders being incarcerated for minor breaches of parole.”

  • Gas inquiry inadequate

    Victorian Greens resources spokesperson Ellen Sandell says Victoria needs a permanent ban on unconventional gas extraction. 

    “Evidence from interstate and overseas already shows how toxic this industry is to our water, farmland and climate” Ms Sandell said.

    “Labor is using the inquiry to delay a decision and keep the fossil fuel industry happy. Victoria needs a permanent ban on fracking and onshore gas exploration, to protect farmers and communities."

  • Greens to introduce 'A Metre Matters' bike laws in Victoria

    Victorian Greens road safety spokesperson Samantha Dunn MLC will introduce 'One Metre Matters' laws for a minimum one metre distance for overtaking bicycles.  Road rule changes are  "inevitable across Australia" now South Australia has joined Queensland and ACT to make the move.

  • Time to close Victorian coal mines

    Victorian Greens MP Ellen Sandell says it is time to close and rehabilitate dangerous and polluting coal mines.

    “Today Greg Barber and I were in the Latrobe Valley meeting with locals who were affected by the Hazelwood mine fire and are deeply concerned about new coal allocations,” Ms Sandell said.

    “We also met with farmers worried about coal seam gas destroying their water and farmland.

    “It’s not enough to just have fire management plans. As long as there is a dirty great open coal pit next to a town there is a huge risk to people’s health.
