Discussions of a Custody Notification Service in WA welcome
Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert has welcomed commencement of discussions with the Federal Government over funding for a Custody Notification Service (CNS).  “I'm very pleased to see the WA Attorney General’s interest in introducing a Custody Notification Service (CNS) in WA to drive down Aboriginal deaths in custody in the state”, Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert said today.  “The Custody Notification Service operating in NSW has effectively stopped Aboriginal deaths in custody in New South Wales (NSW) since implementation in 2000.  “In May this year I wrote to Premier McGowan urging him to reconsider the decision by the previous Barnett Government who actively turned down funding by the Federal Government to roll out such a scheme in Western Australia.  “Former Premier Barnett said that the current services were ‘sufficient’, which obviously they are not.    “Although the previous Government’s extension of a hotline run by the Department of











Greens call for war powers act
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s decision to commit Australian troops to a possible war against North Korea puts Australia at risk and shows why Parliament needs to urgently pass a war powers act and renegotiate the alliance with the United States, said leader of the Australian Greens Dr Richard Di Natale and Greens Defence Spokesperson Sen. Peter Whish-Wilson. "Our alliance with the United States is making us less safe, not more, and this war of words with North Korea is the latest and most frightening example. Donald Trump is completely unhinged and his irresponsible rhetoric is putting the entire world in danger," Di Natale said. "Nuclear war is a nightmare scenario that must be avoided at all costs, not a bargaining chip to be tossed around in the media by Trump, Turnbull or Tony Abbott. Any responsible leader would be seeking to calm the situation, not inflame it, and risk nuclear war. "Malcolm Turnbull's decision to unilaterally offer Australian military support in a war with











Greens Senator Janet Rice joins High Court challenge to postal plebiscite
Australian Greens Senator and LGBTIQ spokesperson, Janet Rice, has joined Australian Marriage Equality in a challenge to the validity of the postal plebiscite in the High Court. "I’m pleased that the movement for equality has put forward strong legal challenges, and I’m honoured to be a part of these. The postal plebiscite would subvert the will of the Parliament after the Senate again rejected legislation for a plebiscite. LGBTIQ Australians and their families will be hurt by this expensive, divisive, non-compulsory, non-binding postal plebiscite,’ said Senator Rice. ‘LGBTIQ people should not have their relationships, their identities and their families come under vicious scrutiny for a survey that is non-binding, non-compulsory and will disenfranchise young people,’ said Senator Rice. ‘We look forward to the outcome of this legal challenge and urge Mr Turnbull to find some ticker and allow a free vote in this parliament.’ Senator Rice noted, however, that people should











Senate inquiry ramps up pressure on Adani
The Australian Greens are going to haul each and every one of the Northern Australian Investment Facility's directors before the Senate committee until the rampant conflicts of interests surrounding their board are resolved, Greens leader Dr Richard Di Natale said. "We can’t spend $5 billion of taxpayers money without having complete assurance that everything is above board and today’s hearing shows that the board has advanced the Adani project against their own investment rules," Di Natale said. "NAIF is a throw-back to Queensland’s Joh Bjelke-Petersen era: special appointments, complete secrecy and the lingering perception of political favours and interference." "When Adani said the government loan is ‘non-critical’ to the project going ahead, it should have been immediately been ruled ineligible." "The NAIF board either has to open up its approval processes and board conflict to public scrutiny or inform the community that the project will not receive funding. This closed
