Nick McKim announced as the new Greens Senator for Tasmania
The Australian Greens are pleased to announce that former Tasmanian Greens Leader Nick McKim has been elected by a ballot of members to become the next Greens Senator for Tasmania. Mr McKim will fill a casual vacancy in the Senate, created by the resignation of Christine Milne. “I want to thank the Tasmanian Greens members for giving me this honour and I will do everything I can to repay the faith they have put in me,” McKim said. “Replacing someone of Christine’s calibre will be a huge challenge, but one that I’m really looking forward to.” “Australia has rarely seen such a reckless and self-serving government. The Greens mission is more urgent now than ever and I can’t wait to join my new colleagues in standing up for a cleaner, healthier and smarter Australia. “It has been a privilege to represent the people of Franklin for the past 13 years and I look forward to representing all Tasmanians and my beloved state of Tasmania in m

"I've heard a lot of drivel"
I've heard a lot of drivel in a decade in the Senate and often it just is drivel to fill in time and that's precisely what's going on here tonight - anyone listening to this here tonight should know that this is a filibuster. That's because out in the backrooms the crossbenchers are trying to stitch up an even worse deal. The government has its tail up because it's got the Labor Party to cave in to 33 GWh. They got them to cave in on forest logging because the Labor Party did not make it a condition on accepting this deal that they give rid of native forest logging. And now we've got the anti-wind, anti-science, anti-future, pro-logging group from the crossbench negotiating with the Government to see what other disasters they can incorporate into the RET.That’s exactly what’s going on now. I call it drivel for this reason. Nobody who has spoken on this, clearly, has ever been to a coup in

Christine's last Speech in the Senate
On this day of national shame—and that is the only way you can describe it when the government and the Labor Party have completely lost their moral compass—to retrospectively legalise the illegal, under the law as it stands, to send babies into offshore detention indefinitely, I rise here to say how proud I am that the Greens are a strong and rising political force here and around the world, a force for hope, resilience and change in an otherwise bleak political environment. That force for hope, resilience and change was on show here last night as well, as we stood up for addressing global warming, for renewable energy, for the conversion to the low-carbon economy and, instead, watched what I can only describe as the 'hollow men'. I will come back to that a bit later. The Greens are a force for standing up to the only two things that are really in the world: people and nature. We know that economics is simply a tool that governs that relationship. The problem

Vale Lincoln Siliakis: World Heritage legend
Lincoln Siliakis, a man who dedicated decades of his life to the protection of World Heritage properties has died in Paris. "Lincoln Siliakis never sought publicity or acclaim for the role he played in protecting Australia's places of outstanding universal value but today we should all pay tribute to this legend of World Heritage advocacy," said Australian Greens Senator Christine Milne. "Lincoln was central to the peoples' nomination of the Daintree as World Heritage in the early 1980's, and then became the anchor of the legal team to save the Franklin River. After his move to Paris I joined him there as we campaigned together at UNESCO against the Jabiluka Uranium Mine in the Kakadu World Heritage Area. "His mastery of the French language and his legal skills were invaluable as we met with Ambassadors at UNESCO; pointing out just how determined the Howard government was to develop uranium at the expense of both Aboriginal traditional owners and the environment."
