BRINGING MORALITY BACK ON ASYLUM SEEKER POLICY

Tony Abbott and Labor have both pursued a draconian policy of punishing asylum seekers with offshore detention. Can we restore the country's moral compass?

Join Kathleen Maltzahn, Adam Bandt MP, Campaign Coordinator for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre Pamela Curr, human rights lawyer Katie Robertson, writer Arnold Zable and environmentalist Ali Yaghobi to hear about the latest developments on asylum seekers, including the legal challenges and how the state and federal governments can create compassionate and moral asylum seeker policies.

What we believe

The Greens believe in a society where equity, diversity and sustainability are essential qualities.

The Greens have made Yarra the most progressive local government in Australia. We have strong social and environmental policies, we are financially rigorous and have a strong record of working co-operatively with residents and businesses to develop innovative and practical policies.

What we do

Yarra Council

We have three elected councillors in the City of Yarra:

  • Sam Gaylard (Nicholls Ward)
  • Amanda Stone (Langridge Ward)
  • Misha Coleman (Melba Ward)

Yarra Greens branch

We are a branch of the Australian Greens Victoria, based in the City of Yarra. We actively support our Greens councillors on Yarra Council.

We are involved in local community action, and support and work with our neighbouring Greens branches in Melbourne, Darebin, Moreland, and Moonee Valley.
