    Rally For Refugees: 5 years too many

    34499484_2285033104856502_4783559017496576000_o.jpg

    On the 19th of July 2013, then-Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced that all asylum seekers who arrived in Australia by boat would not be resettled here. This July marks five years too many for the refugees and asylum seekers on Manus and Nauru.

    Australia’s policy of endless, hopeless detention is designed to break people. 

    It's time to end it. The Greens and social movements will be fighting to end offshore detention and ramp up the pressure on Labor and the Coalition to end this bipartisan racist cruelty.

    Join the Greens at this important rally to say 5 years of offshore detention is 5 years too long.

    A Greens contingent will gather at the corner of Swanston and La Trobe Streets from 1:50pm. 

    Speakers include
    Behrouz Bouchani - live cross from Manus
    Steph Hodgins-May - Greens candidate for Macnamara
    Luke Hilikari - Victorian Trades Hall Council 
    Mohamed Xarbi - refugee and journalist with Universal Somali TV
    Lavanya Thavaraja - Tamil Refugee Council

    Data Party - July 23

    Join us for an evening of volunteering to help make every conversation count.

    In the next twelve months, we’ll be facing elections for both the State and Federal Parliaments. By re-electing Adam Bandt and Ellen Sandell in Melbourne, and by electing Kathleen Maltzahn to turn the seat of Richmond Green for the first time ever, we could secure the balance of power in both the Victorian and Commonwealth parliaments. So we’re bringing all three electorates into one huge campaign.

    We know that one-on-one conversations are the most powerful way to win votes, and we need volunteers like you to help us run a smarter, data-driven campaign.

    You don't need any experience or training, just bring yourself, the ability to use a web browser, and a laptop if you have one.

    Training and support will be provided throughout the night, along with snacks and music. You can also invite a friend to come along to double your impact!

    Plan our Strategy - CBD and Docklands

    Help us make sure we're reaching voters in the CBD and Docklands by coming to our Plan our Strategy event!

    Many Melbourne residents live in apartments. BUT we can't doorknock the high rise apartments in the CBD and Docklands and we still need to talk to voters there. We know that local know-how and personal experiences is key. So if you live in the City or Docklands we need your help to come up with some creative ways to get in touch with your neighbours.

    Join out Plan our Strategy night to help us develop a plan to talk to voters in the CBD and Docklands

    Connecting with voters in this area is essential to winning the seats of Melbourne for Ellen Sandell and Adam Bandt in the upcoming state and federal elections.

    Justice for Refugees Day of Action - Kensington

    Australia’s policy of endless, hopeless detention is designed to break people. We torture them and they die in our camps so politicians like Peter Dutton can peddle the politics of fear and division. People who have done nothing more than flee for their lives.

    Sadly, Dutton and the Liberals won’t change their minds on this horrendously cruel, punitive policy. But the Labor Party might, and they're likely to form the next government.

    In December, Labor will meet for their national conference, where they'll decide whether to change their refugee policy.

    We're campaigning hard to force the ALP to finally abandon their cruel position. We know that pressure from Greens can shift Labor's policy, especially in Melbourne's inner city where Labor feels most under threat from growing Greens support.

    Join us on Saturday July 28 to have powerful conversations with voters in the inner-city, asking them to join our campaign to force Labor to shift their position and finally deliver justice for refugees.

    Richmond South Doorknock

    In the next twelve months, we’ll be facing elections for both the State and Federal Parliaments.

    We know that one-on-one conversations are the most powerful way to win votes.

    That’s why we'll be doorknocking across inner Melbourne to talk to our community about issues that matter to them.

    You don't need to be an expert to have these meaningful conversations, all you need to know is why you care. 

    All training will be provided on the day, and if you're new to doorknocking you can pair up with an experienced volunteer first.
