National Council says Greens to lead nationwide campaign on global warming
The Australian Greens' National Council has this weekend determined to lead a vigorous and focussed campaign to ensure that Australia joins the rest of the world in securing a global treaty in 2015 and that big polluters are not allowed to impose the costs of global warming onto everyone else. "Companies are now free to pollute in Tony Abbott's Australia, but not for long. The resurgence in support for pricing pollution and genuine action on global warming begins now," said Greens Leader Christine Milne. "Everyone from leading scientists to expert economists and insurers keep telling us that the longer we take to bring down pollution the greater the costs will be in lives, jobs and precious natural places lost. "Every effort will be made at all levels of our party to mobilise Australians who care about global warming to help restore genuine action, including a price on carbon pollution." The endorsed motion is as follows: That the Australian Greens National Council notes that: 1.







Greens urge: Wear your heart on your lapel for real action on climate
Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne says a little-known creature native to tropical north Queensland should be recognised as a symbol of the serious and immediate threat to life presented by global warming. A brooch modelled on the White Lemuroid Ringtail Possum has been unveiled today at the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation (ATBC) conference at James Cook University in Cairns, to raise awareness of its plight. "I wore a polar bear brooch the day Australia's emissions trading scheme passed through Parliament, because it was such a huge step toward that species' salvation. Now we need to revive real action on climate change and this local possum makes the challenge really hit home," said Senator Milne. Tourists used to visit Mount Lewis, northwest of Cairns, in droves to see these white possums until a severe heatwave devastated the population in late 2005. The few survivors now effectively live on an island in the sky - forced to higher elevations to avoid rising


Greens call for swift appeal for Peter Greste
With the announcement today that Australian journalist Peter Greste will appeal the Egyptian court's conviction and seven-year sentence, Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne says it is incumbent on the Australian Government to press for a speedy resolution of the appeals process. "It is clear that the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi will not intervene as long as legal processes are underway. It would be a travesty of justice if the appeals process drags on for many months," Senator Milne said. "I am calling on Prime Minister Abbott and Foreign Minister Bishop to make it clear to the Egyptian Government that Australia expects the appeals process to be conducted in a timely manner. "With the Egyptian President having said he wished the journalists had been deported after their arrest, instead of being put on trial, efforts must be stepped up to resolve legal processes as a matter of urgency. "Peter Greste and his Al Jazeera colleagues have been imprisoned since the end of las

Greens condemn attack on UN shelter in Gaza
The Australian Greens say an attack on a UN school, designated as a shelter, makes it clear nowhere in Gaza is safe as long as the fighting continues. "It is devastating to hear of more deaths and injuries, in what was meant to be a safe place for civilians in Gaza," said Greens Leader Christine Milne. "This attack must be strongly condemned and I echo the UN's calls for the immunity of UN premises in Gaza, and humanitarian law, to be respected. "It is horrific to consider the scale of the losses, with reports another 15 people died in this attack while 200 more, mainly women and children, were injured. "There have been casualties on both sides throughout this conflict but overwhelmingly the victims have been Palestinian women and children, and it's reported more than 140,000 Palestinians that have been forced to flee their homes, seeking shelter in these UN-run premises. "All sides must immediately halt hostilities and agree to a lasting ceasefire. "These kinds of hostilities can neve
