At last night's Inner West Council meeting, Labor and Liberal councillors scuppered Greens attempts to consult with the Aboriginal community about moving celebrations away from January 26.
"It's not even about entitlements, it's about fatigue. For that day I drove trains for six hours straight,"
Sydney- before you get angry at train workers, reme...mber that quote from a driver regarding last Tuesday's chaos.
Remember that this Liberal government wants to waste $2 billion rebuilding stadiums instead of investing in staff and trains.
Remember that management got a 9% pay rise but are telling workers to accept a maximum of 2.5%.
October 7 marks the National Day of Action to #StopAdani!
All over the country groups are gathering to literally spell it out for the pollies - in the form of human signs. The location of this human sign will be Camperdown Rest Memorial Park (otherwise known as 'Newtown Park' near the Courty) - so chosen because it is on the border of Tanya Plibersek MP and Anthony Albanese MP’s electorates.
Letters will be marked out with tape and we invite you to bring your picnic blanket a...nd all your friends to come and fill them up! Both MPs have been invited to come and speak on the day so that they can see, hear, and feel the opposition to this atrocious coal mine among voters.
If you don't have much time - just come for the photo! Be there at two and leave at half past!
Since the Turnbull Liberal Government announced the horrendous postal survey on Marriage Equality, The Greens NSW have hit the streets and phones in massive num...bers to campaign for a resounding YES vote.
We have worked together with the Equality Campaign and supporters across the political spectrum to get this thing done. We have achieved a lot (look at all the rainbow!) but we still have a long way to go so sign up here to get involved: http\://www.jennyleong.org/volunteer_marriage_equality
Had a very successful stall outside our office to get out the YES vote! Lots of people picked up one of our #marriageequality #voteyes campaign packs. If you wo...uld like one posted to you, please get in touch: email@example.com.
They contain posters, stickers, leaflets and conversation guides so that you can do calls from your own home or workplace for the YES campaign 🌈
SURVEY FORMS ARE ARRIVING IN MAILBOXES ALREADY!
That means there is no time to wait - so even though parliament is sitting this week - we aren't going to let t...hat stop us making yes calls! We are hosting a YES campaign phone bank in the NSW Parliament.
