PM Abbott as Minister for Women only deepening inequality
Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne says Tony Abbott has revealed himself as small-minded in both the climate debate and his view of women, after claiming his greatest achievement as the Minister for Women has been abolishing the carbon price, because "women are particularly focussed on the household budget." "He might as well have said his greatest achievement was to help women buy a better iron so they can stay home and iron more often," said Senator Milne. "Australia's Minister for Women should be achieving in the areas of workforce participation, closing the gender pay and wealth gaps, and tackling domestic violence. Tony Abbott is doing the opposite. "This backwards Minister for Women considers workplace reporting requirements to be red tape. He doesn't want people to have information they can use to bring about a more equal society. "The reason we currently know about workplace inequality is because there are requirements for business to report on women's participation, wage

Press conference transcript: Tarkine protection and forest furnaces
Tarkine 4WD tracks and forest furnaces I totally support the actions of the Tasmanian Aboriginal community who are taking to court the government for the fact that they are going to re-open four-wheel-drive tracks in the Tarkine which will jeopardise aboriginal heritage. It is just shocking that this government is determined to behave in such a manner, as vandals, that is all you can call it. It was bad enough that Minister Burke under the last government failed to protect the Tarkine in its entirety as the Heritage Council had recommended. But he could not avoid protecting those Aboriginal sites. It is an incredibly rich area of Aboriginal heritage and to now see the government open up all of these tracks, many of which have been closed for a very long time, it is just appalling. It will be environmentally shocking, but culturally it will damage, no doubt at all, damage Aboriginal heritage. And the Aboriginal community deserve all of our support in taking this matter to court. The T


Abbott government needs new policies, not new enforcers
Greens Leader Christine Milne says Tony Abbott's frontbench reshuffle won't matter much to everyday Australians who are still being threatened with the same cruel budget measures. "The faces have changed, but not the policies. This government is too arrogant to accept its cruel agenda has been rejected by the community and the Senate," said Senator Milne. "If the Prime Minister doesn't listen to people and change his policies, he's going to find that people will change the Prime Minister. "Tony Abbott seems to think that all he has to do is try some extra stand-over tactics in the economic portfolio and he's going to somehow flog the Senate into submission. Well, it's not going to work. "The Greens are standing there saying we don't support what you're doing, not because of the individuals who are doing it, but because we do not agree with a government determined to govern for the big end of town. "Putting Scott Morrison in charge of social services will send shivers down the spines o







Tarkine value in its ancient, natural state
The argument between economics and conservation is a false dichotomy, writes Christine Milne TASMANIAN Minerals and Energy Council chairman Wayne Bould's Talking Point article (Mercury, December 18) about the Tarkine could not have been more timely. It came the day after the Supreme Court found the Environment Protection Authority had not followed the law in allowing a mine to store more hazardous waste than its permit specified. This was the mine that owners claimed would employ 120 people over three years. Instead, it lasted eight months and shut up shop as soon as the iron ore price dipped. Two months later another mine in the region, claiming it would employ 60 people over two years, once again closed due to the falling iron ore price. These were marginal operations that governments rushed through on the promise of jobs. What jobs? What we now know is that there were very few, shortterm jobs and of those, most did not go to locals. In contrast, the damage mines do to long-term, loc
