Milne hopes for carbon price compromise


Greens Senator Christine Milne says she is hopeful the major parties will be open to compromise on the issue of a carbon price. Prime Minister Julia Gillard says she will not rule in or out the concept of a carbon tax, despite rejecting the idea before the election. She says the Government will instead consider various options through a new climate change committee that will be set up. The terms of reference for that committee will be finalised by the end of the month. Senator Milne has welcomed the changed approach, and says she had a useful meeting with the new Climate Change ...

Threats of force against Manus prisoners
Threats of using force against detainees at the Manus Island detention centre are unprecedented and potentially highly dangerous, Greens Immigration spokesperson Nick McKim says. “The instructions for this threat have no doubt come directly from Dutton’s office,” Senator McKim, who is in Papua New Guinea, said. “These men are Australia’s responsibility and remain so. They are in Maclolm Turnbull’s care as he proved when he knocked back New Zealand’s offer to resettle some of the men.” “Lives are now at risk because of Dutton’s escalation of a humanitarian emergency of his very own making.” “If people are hurt or worse their blood will be on the hands of Peter Dutton and Malcolm Turnbull. The men on Manus must be evacuated to safety immediately.” Media ReleaseImmigration and Citizenship
Media Release: Senator Rhiannon congratulates Opera House refugee protesters
Greens NSW Senator Lee Rhiannon has given the strongest support to Whistleblowers, Activists and Citizens Alliance, the group that organised the Opera House banner drop calling for the Manus Island refugees to be evacuated to Australia. “The WACA Opera House action is an incredibly important protest as it has amplified to the world that the Turnbull government has abandoned refugees on Manus Island,” Senator Rhiannon said. “The Turnbull government’s abusive treatment of the Manus Island refugees should be investigated as crimes against humanity. “I congratulate the activists who have used the Opera House for this banner drop. “This is a most courageous action that alerts the world of the abusive treatment and crimes the Australian government is perpetrating. “The WACA members who took this stand for refugee rights continue a fine tradition of protests at the Opera House,” Senator Rhiannon said.

Greens release plan to protect Australian multiculturalism in law
Leader of the Australian Greens Dr Richard Di Natale today released draft laws aimed at protecting multiculturalism in Australia. Speaking at the Migration Institute of Australia’s national conference, Di Natale released a draft copy of the Australian Multicultural Bill 2017, which enacts one of the key recommendations of the report of the Senate Select Committee on Strengthening Multiculturalism established by the Greens earlier this year. “Australia’s cultural diversity is a vital part of our nation's identity and it is time that our national laws recognise this,” Di Natale said.   “Multiculturalism is too important to play politics with. Enshrining the value of multiculturalism in our laws will mean it can no longer be used as a political football by those seeking to drive division and exploit our differences for their own political purposes. “Most Australian states have legislation or other instruments that assert the values of multiculturalism, which remain consist
HMAS Albatross PFOS contamination - call for mandatory blood testing for all military personnel and base workers
MEDIA RELEASE - 10 November 2017 HMAS Albatross PFOS contamination - call for mandatory blood testing for all military personnel and base workers. All military personnel, staff and base workers who may have been exposed to toxic firefighting foams should be provided with blood tests, Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon said today. “The Defence Department should offer free blood tests to all military personnel and base workers associated with HMAS Albatross, along HMAS Creswell and the Jervis Bay Range Facility,” Senator Rhiannon said. “These tests need to be provided now and not delayed until the environmental testing at Jervis Bay is completed in mid-2018. “The Defence Department have admitted they are totally responsible for the contamination at their bases that is now polluting surrounding water sources and land. “The health implications of this contamination need to be a top priority of the state and federal government as the PFOA and PFOS chemicals are associated with a range
