Rocking out at the Aust Vietnamese Women’s Association AGM at Collingwood Town Hall! 🤘

Today was #GirlsTakeOverParliament  & Ashley helped make a difference at our end. Thanks, Ashley & everyone else who took part! #Greens  #equality 

Great that Labor has come on board with #Greens  and xbench push to declare a climate emergency. When Greens, ALP and indeps worked together before, we got a carbon price and started cutting pollution. We could get this done by the end of the year & start forcing gov to act.

Liberal MPs who say they accept the science must now exercise their free vote & support a climate emergency declaration, says my Parl colleague @zalisteggall ⁩ in this important opinion piece today.

Lib & Lab just agreed on free trade agreements that give corporations more rights than workers & govs. #Greens  will move to amend leg’n to: - axe ability for corps to sue govs; - require local advertising of jobs; - defer HK deal while conflict there ongoing. #qt

Today, Labor and Liberals voted together to rip $4 billion out of public education. #Greens  are the party of public education and we opposed the cut. Let's fund disaster relief by winding back unfair corporate tax breaks, not cutting university funding.

For the $158b cost of the tax cuts that LNP & ALP just voted for, we could build houses for every homeless person in Australia, get dental into Medicare and still have money left over. We should use public money to reduce inequality, not for tax cuts for millionaires. #Greens 

Peter Dutton is the chief organiser of the torture of children. You’ve probably already worked this out, but there is no way I would offer him confidence & supply. It’s time for the people to turf this rotten gov out, especially if it’s led by a human rights abuser. #Greens 

On the busy Craigieburn line train home from the city last night, a young boy started crying. It quickly became obvious no one was travelling with him. He was very, very distressed. /1

RT if you want Labor & Bill Shorten to stop Adani coal mega-mine by announcing they'll halt the project if they win next election #StopAdani 

Australia burns during winter, but our new ‘leader’ is a man who laughed as he waved a lump of coal in Parl. I won’t support this hateful, divided lot remaining the govt. I’ll be voting on floor of Parl for an election ASAP to kick this mob out. #Greens  #libspill  #auspol 

“We are 80-year-old grandparents, and 40-year-old parents and 20-year-old tradies. We are psychologists and truck drivers and electricians. We are ordinary people who can't sleep at night worrying about the climate emergency.”

I refuse to believe that the only way to stop ‘deaths at sea’ is to have deaths on land. Australia’s refugee policy is monstrous. #Greens
