  • Victorians to decide on firefighters laws at state election

    Fair Protections for Firefighters legislation is set to become an election issue following the defeat of the the Greens motion today. 

    "Today I called on all parties to protect our firefighters who get cancer from their work within 6 months of the election this November. The Napthine Liberal-National Government refused," said Victorian Greens spokesperson on emergency services Colleen Hartland.

    "What message does this send to the thousands of career and volunteer firefighters who put their lives on the line every day to protect us."

  • VicForests should be shut down

    Victorian Greens leader Greg Barber says the state-owned logging company VicForests latest annual report shows it is a commercial failure and should be shut down.

    "VicForests have lost twenty per cent of their revenue in just four years. In the next financial year, we will see the effects of the loss of a huge woodchip customer, South East Fibre Exports. But they tell us the future is bright. These people are in la la land,” Mr Barber said.

  • Govt has dropped the ball on landcare

    Victorian Greens leader Greg Barber says a new report by the Auditor General shows the state government has dropped the ball on landcare.

    "The report finds there is no plan or even a target to restore our rural landscapes. There's very little information about the state of the catchments, but what there is suggests they are in decline," Mr Barber said.

    "Protecting, let alone improving, the environment is not a priority for this government. It's no surprise this report shows neglect and decline.
