Milne confirms climate talks breakthrough


Deputy Greens leader Christine Milne has confirmed reports of a carbon tax breakthrough, saying the Multi-Party Climate Change Committee is "on track" to have the scheme starting in July next year. Independent MP Tony Windsor says a deal may be signed off "next week". It is understood agreement has been reached over the amount of compensation to be paid to industry, and a guarantee the carbon tax will switch to a market-based emissions trading scheme in 2015. It is believed the Government has agreed to the Greens' proposal for an independent climate change commission to advise on what ...


Greens Deputy Milne to National Farmers` Federation Congress


Let`s Grasp This Opportunity Addressing the National Farmers' Federation Congress today, Australian Greens Deputy Leader, Senator Christine Milne, urged farmers to seize this tremendous opportunity to shape their own future instead of adapting to changes forced onto them. The Greens and rural independents who will share the balance of power in the new parliament also share elements of a positive vision for rural and regional Australia. "What a great opportunity that our parliament is getting a renewed focus on rural and regional Australia just as the vital issues of climate change, ...


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 ...

Local jobs must be guaranteed in ship building plan
The Australian Greens have called on the Government to implement local employment targets to ensure South Australians are prioritised for the thousands of jobs expected to be created in ship building from 2021. “We’re being told it’s going to rain jobs in South Australia in 2021, but we’re in a drought at the moment. With a project that’s offering thousands of jobs, in a state where we have almost 60,000 people out of work, it is important that we look to supporting locals winning these jobs first and foremost,” Greens Senator for South Australia Sarah Hanson-Young said. “Companies should be contractually obliged to ensure locals make up the majority of the workforce. We have the talent here, from decades of a strong manufacturing sector, so let’s use it. “We can’t expect people to languish on the dole in the off-chance that they’re offered a job in ship-building in four years’ time. What we don’t want to see, is a fly-in, fly-out workforce while talented Sout
Greens stand with students protesting against uni cuts
The Australian Greens stand in solidarity with students protesting around the country today against the government's harsh university cuts. "This government's attacks on students will not go unnoticed and will not go unchallenged," Greens higher education spokesperson Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said. "The Greens stand in solidarity with students protesting against these cruel and unnecessary cuts. "This unjustified attack on students proves that the government has it in for young people. Rather than investing in higher education, addressing housing affordability and retaining penalty rates, this government seems hell-bent on making life harder for young Australians. Well, we stand with young people and together we will fight back. "The Australian Greens are rallying with students today and we will continue to represent them in the parliament by blocking these ludicrous cuts."   Media contact: Amy Moran 0427 604 760 Media ReleaseEducation
Greens support calls for a Royal Commission into the abuse, violence and neglect of people with disability
Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert has welcomed reports that an open letter has been signed by 100 academics urging the Federal Government to establish a Royal Commission into the violence, abuse and neglect of people with disability. “There was a large body of evidence to our senate inquiry on the level of violence, abuse and neglect of people with disability in institutional and residential care. “Despite all this, the Government has rejected a recommendation by the senate inquiry for a Royal Commission into the issue. They also rejected a plethora of other recommendations that if implemented would help keep people with disability safer in care. “It is quite astonishing that the Government seems so disinterested in protecting people that are at such a high risk of abuse, violence and neglect; what became clear from the senate inquiry is that it desperately needs further investigating. “Without close and comprehensive scrutiny into the issue and substantial action, peopl
Manus documents show torture is government policy
Documents showing a plan to make conditions worse for people in Australia's Manus Island detention centre are proof that the torture of innocent people seeking asylum is Australian government policy. "Punishing people and subjecting them to degradation to coerce an outcome fits squarely within the definition of torture," Greens Immigration spokesperson Nick McKim said. "The Australian government, and the private contractors it has employed, are in clear breach of their legal and moral obligations." "The people in Australia's offshore detention centres have suffered terribly - indeed some have lost their lives - because of this appalling policy of deliberate harm." "They should be immediately brought to Australia so they can start to rebuild their lives." Media ReleaseImmigration and Citizenship
