Greens to Turnbull: scrap DV legal cuts for International Women’s Day
The Greens have urged the Prime Minister to mark International Women’s Day by scrapping plans to cut $34 million from funding for community legal centres that provide domestic violence services. “Despite professing to care about gender equality, the Coalition government still plans to cut $34 million of core funding from crucial frontline legal services for women and children fleeing domestic violence,” said the Australian Greens acting spokesperson for women Senator Janet Rice.    “These may be Abbott-era cuts, but they have now become Turnbull’s responsibility. “Turnbull is risking the lives of women and children with these cuts, and he should get on board the Greens’ plan for a $5 billion funding boost for domestic violence services that will make sure no woman is ever turned away.”   MEDIA CONTACT: Sam Drummond 0400 352 935 Media ReleaseWomen











Uranium scandal: Federal environment Minister sets a new low
The Federal Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg has given environmental approval to the Mulga Rock uranium mine in WA this week, just days ahead of the election, despite the lack of cross-party support for this toxic industry, the Australian Greens said.  Australian Greens Co-Deputy Leader and Nuclear Issues spokesperson Senator Scott Ludlam said, “This week’s Federal Environmental Approval for the Mulga Rock uranium project is premature and deeply deficient.” “This decision is a real departure from the norm with virtually no conditions for the environment, for mine closure and rehabilitation or for the management of radioactive mine waste. “Frydenberg has set a dangerously low precedent for one of Australia’s most dangerous and toxic industries. "The Mulga Rock uranium project is in a pristine environment, a Priority Ecological Community and home to many rare and endangered species. The project would use 15 million litres of water a day in one of Australia’s most arid











State of Environment ain’t good, Government complicit
The 2017 State of the Environment report shows the federal government is putting the interests of donors and big polluters ahead of the public good and responsible environmental protection, say the Australian Greens. “The Minister claims there are ‘bright spots’, but this report shows the dark stain of Government mismanagement of our environment,” said Australian Greens acting environment spokesperson Senator Janet Rice. “Any responsible government would prioritise environmental protection and urgent action on global warming, but both Coalition and Labor governments have allowed their policies to be led by their donors in big mining. “Australians are experiencing record heatwaves, but meanwhile the Treasurer is waving around lumps of coal, the old parties are ganging up to cut renewable energy and fossil fuel pollution is still rising. “The Greens will establish a new independent environmental watchdog, that will operate free from the influence of politicians and donation











Damning senate inquiry report buries Perth Freight Link
The snap senate inquiry into environmental breaches of the Perth Freight Link project has handed down a devastating report, unequivocally stating the project is proceeding in breach of state and federal environmental conditions, and works should immediately cease, the Australian Greens said today. "This report is the most damning I have seen in my time in the senate. It makes clear what a disaster the freight link has been from the outset," Australian Greens Co-Deputy Leader and Senator for WA Scott Ludlam said today. "The evidence the committee heard about repeated breaches of environmental conditions at the Beeliar wetlands is impossible to ignore: work on site must immediately cease. "Failure to adequately survey nesting areas for endangered cockatoos, insufficient trapping and relocation of marsupials in the woodlands, asbestos-laden dust coating residents homes: Premier Colin Barnett has quite literally bulldozed ahead with no regard for the damage he's doing. "The contempt on dis
