Greens want loans tied to cash rate moves

The Australian Greens will be seeking backing from the federal parliament to make retail banks offer mortgages and small business loans that are linked directly to movements in the official cash rate. The proposal comes after something of a stand-off by the big four banks after the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) cut the cash rate on Tuesday. It was broken by the ANZ Bank on Thursday when it announced it would be pass on the full reduction to mortgages and small business loans. The other major banks - Commonwealth Bank of Australia, National Australia Bank and Westpac - have yet to ...

Australian Greens Move to Scrap ‘Extreme’ Anti-Terrorism Law

The Australian Greens party is pushing to repeal an anti-terrorism law introduced by former Prime Minister John Howard’s government, saying it was rushed through Parliament and undermines human rights.Greens Senator Scott Ludlam said aspects of the law are “extreme,” vaguely worded and undemocratic and he will introduce legislation today to scrap them.“You can be convicted for ‘recklessly possessing a thing,’ whatever that may be, or expressing political dissent,” Ludlam said in a statement. “You can be questioned and detained for prolonged ...

International Day of Forests 2017
Friday, March 24, 2017 Forests are Australia's hidden treasure. Entering our forests, it is invigorating to breathe in the fresh air and hear cascades of clear water, clean enough to drink straight out of the creeks and rivers. Plus, they are some of the most carbon-rich forests in the world. But Australians have been failed by the way our forests have been managed. Over the past 20 years, areas designated for logging have been exempted from Australia's environment laws. Even open-cut mines do not get that level of exemption. These logging laws, known as Regional Forest Agreements, were meant to protect jobs and protect the environment, and they have failed on both counts. They are wrecking communities. Take Heyfield in Victoria. My thoughts are with the people whose lives are changed by the decision to close the Heyfield mill. The Heyfield mill crisis has come from mismanagement by successive governments at both the state and federal levels, and calls into
Aboriginal Legal Services should not have been excluded from race-hate inquiry: Greens
Friday, March 24, 2017 It is atrocious that the Government excluded Aboriginal Legal Services from giving evidence at a senate inquiry into race-hate laws, Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert said today. “When committee chair LNP Senator Ian MacDonald excluded Aboriginal Legal Services from giving evidence at the inquiry, he excluded a voice for our First peoples. The committee should have heard from these important services. “Aboriginal Legal Services are a very important voice in the national discussion on changes to 18c and race hate. For years and years they have worked on the ground with people who experience daily racial vilification and deserve to be heard. “Senator MacDonald should not have excluded Aboriginal Legal Services from giving evidence and I believe the report into this issue will be poorer for it”.

Victorian taxpayers set to lose tens of millions of dollars on grand prix again
Friday, March 24, 2017 "Victorian taxpayers are set to lose tens of millions on the F1 grand prix again this weekend for an event that costs around three times as much as it makes,” Greens Member for Southern Metropolitan said today.“In the last five years (2012 to 2016) the state government (taxpayers) has forked out almost $290 million to prop up the spiralling cost of the grand prix.* “With the race set to cost us another $60+ million this year and a further six years at $60 million per year, Victorians will have paid three quarters of a billion dollars from 2012 to the end of the contract in 2023.“If you add that to the estimated $400+ million government contribution up to 2012, then by 2023, this car race will have cost taxpayers more than $1.1 billion.“It is impossible to justify this level of expenditure of public money on a foreign owned event, when funding is desperately needed in areas such as education, health, justice, homelessness and the environment.“On
The Government should not have Accenture ‘transforming’ Centrelink, recipients have been through enough
Thursday, March 23, 2017 Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert has expressed concern that the company behind the bungled Tax Office overhaul has been selected to ‘transform’ the Centrelink system, saying that Centrelink recipients have been through enough. “Centrelink recipients, some of which have just had their payments cut by legislation passed yesterday, should not be subject to anymore poorly operating systems. “They have a track record of taking a system and making it worse for many users, this was demonstrated by the bungled Tax Office rollout. “I agree the Centrelink system is broken, but it should not be put in the hands of a company that have had to overhaul a major departmental system before and had major problems. “I will be following this up with the department with questions on notice”.  Media Release Family, Ageing, Community and Disability Services Source http://rachel-siewert.greensmps.org.au/articles/governme
