Greste's shocking show trial, PM Abbott must put all diplomatic options on the table - Milne
Greens Leader Christine Milne says the Prime Minister should immediately intervene with the Egyptian President and consider all diplomatic options regardless of any avenues of appeal being followed by the Greste legal team. "This has been a shocking show trial. It is a terrible day, not only for Peter Greste and his family but for the free press across the world," Senator Milne said. "I have zero confidence in the integrity of the Egyptian legal system that has imprisoned journalists for reporting the news, and which sentences protesters to death. "Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Australia must now lead international action to intervene with the Egyptian government to secure the release of Peter Greste and void this ridiculous verdict. "All diplomatic options, including sanctions, should be on the table. "If Egypt wants any hope of re-joining the international community with any standing or respect, it must stand for a free press and release Peter Greste and his colleagues immediately."

Christine Milne: We have a PM who is effectively barking mad on climate change
The Australian Greens Leader, Senator Christine Milne, addresses to Senate to oppose the repeal of the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC). The CEFC raises money for the government, while creating jobs in renewable energy and helping reduce Australia's emissions. Senator MILNE (Tasmania-Leader of the Australian Greens) (09:31): I rise today to oppose the government's move to abolish the Clean Energy Finance Corporation. It is critical that the government faces the fact that we are living in a global climate emergency. That is the fact of the matter. The greatest threat to human civilisation this century is global warming, and it is disgraceful that the Prime Minister refuses to acknowledge that. I want to talk about the Clean Energy Finance Corporation in that context. It is intergenerational theft not to face the threat of climate change. What it means is that life is going to be worse for genera

Common sense prevails on Tassie forests
Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne has praised the World Heritage Committee decision overnight to uphold Tasmania's Wilderness World Heritage boundaries as a victory for common sense. "This is a great win for the forests, for wildlife and for Tasmania," Senator Milne said. "It's been clear for decades that these forests are of world heritage value, the only person unable to see it is Tony Abbott. "Thankfully the world community doesn't believe political point scoring is a legitimate reason to abandon a globally significant area and to destroy the outstanding universal values for which it is famous. "This is a win for common sense, the forests and people power. "We've seen thousands of Australians hit the streets in support of these forests and a Senate inquiry into the delisting proposal received thousands of submissions against it. "Mr Abbott should now rule out any more tampering with the area and commit to the funding needed to look after it properly. "This includes assessing


Greens warn Tasmania: Don’t kill the goose that laid tourism’s golden egg
The Australian Greens say the Tasmanian government cannot be trusted to properly assess the environmental impacts of development in national parks and World Heritage areas, for which it has today opened expressions of interest. "Unfortunately in Tasmania we have a government with the mentality that if you can't dig it up or cut it down then you should put a resort on it. That's a very bad idea," said Greens Leader Christine Milne. "The Greens want Tasmania to benefit from a strong tourism industry, so the Hodgman government has to get real. "If you want to sell your reputation globally and you want to talk wilderness, you have to maintain wilderness values," said Senator Milne. "I would have zero confidence in any panel set up by the Hodgman government to assess the merit of these projects. "With the Commonwealth now handing approvals back to the states, what we'd see is the same people who've allowed mining in areas which should be protected giving the tick-off to resorts.
