Christine Milne's address to the National Press Club
Australian Greens Leader Senator Christine Milne addressed the National Press Club about the WA senate election and Tony Abbott's inability to negotiate with the senate. Transcript below I begin by acknowledging the Ngunnawal and Ngambri peoples the traditional owners of the land on which we meet and acknowledge their elders past and present. And in doing so, I commit to the constitutional recognition of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and reject immediately any question over the need to retain aboriginal history as part of our curriculum. Can you believe it, we have a national effort to close the gap between aboriginal health, education, life expectancy and the wider community and, at the same time, a government that is set to remove indigenous history from our classrooms, abandon the Gonski education reforms which direct funding to the children most in need and repeal laws th


Abbott government must heed IPCC report and step up climate action
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has released its long-anticipated fifth report and the Australian Greens say the message is clear: no one on the planet will be unaffected by climate change and governments must act to protect their communities. "In the face of more calls for a global response, the Abbott government wants to rip up every policy and tear down every defence that Australia has against climate change," said Greens Leader Christine Milne. "This report shows that climate change is overwhelming and will affect every aspect of our lives. Not only will it dramatically impact the natural world we live in, it is an economic issue, an employment issue, a health, housing, and agricultural issue. It's an immigration and a transportation issue. "Prime Minister Abbott's refusal to include consideration of climate change in his drought relief package is a case in point. The cost of not acting is far greater than the cost of action, so why is Tony Abbott so intent on exposi

Op-ed: Australia must act beyond self-interest
If we needed any more evidence that a large part of the Abbott government's foreign affairs agenda is motivated purely by domestic power games over refugees, we need look no further than the current session of the UN Human Rights Committee in Geneva. A vote is due there tonight on a resolution endorsing an international investigation into war crimes and human rights abuses during the Sri Lankan civil war. Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has confirmed that Australia was refusing to co-sponsor the US-led resolution, unless the Rajapaksas were praised to provide "balance." In doing so, Minister Bishop has isolated Australia from the rest of the world, and capitulated to a regime that continues to commit flagrant abuses of human rights. Sri Lanka is a country that I love. Having visited first in 1982, I was taken by the friendliness of the Sri Lankan people, the rich culture and the unique environment, but overwhelmed by the poverty of so many. When I returned after the civil war in 2012, I

World heritage fabrication exposed at Senate Inquiry
Claims from the Abbott and Hodgman governments that the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area is degraded are nothing but a smokescreen to increase logging, says Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne. "I established this Senate inquiry to look at the government's proposal to slash the size of our World Heritage Area, and to test the Prime Minister's claims that the area to be excised was degraded," Senator Milne said during a break in the inquiry's public hearing in Hobart today. "We've heard from an array of witnesses and submission writers who have overwhelmingly refuted the government's claim. "The vast bulk of the 74,000 hectares the government wants to remove from the World Heritage list contains high conservation forest, globally significant geomorphic features and sites with unique cultural values. "This area was acknowledged in 2013 by the World Heritage Committee as having Outstanding Universal Values and nothing has changed, except that we've had a federal and state ele
