    INVITATION :  Politics in the Pub for January 2017

    PoliticsInThePub

    Dear Member / Supporter - With summer in fine swing and conversation being easy, it's time to have another event to share our connections and our common values. 

    There are a few things taking place this year. 2017. One of the more memorable ones will get sworn in on the 20th of January. (Hint - Orange hair.)

    However, let's not talk about that. No - not at all. It's all been spoken about beforehand and will be spoken about at great length in the future. Oh how it will be spoken about. 

    Instead, let's look at our goal of redefining what progressive politics is going to look like - ask questions, like how we are going to get there and how we are going to work on this over the next 16 years.

    How you, me, us - the Greens and all the other like minded progressive folks are going to keep our eye on the important things.  Soothsayers Political forecasts suggest a dark dark world out there. We need to share the light. We need to plan over goblets glasses of wine and on strong tables built for robust conversation on the subtleties of systemic democratic dialogue and vagaries of institutional change for the coming of 4 years of winter neolibealism.

    For are we not a party, and shall we not party in spirit and not just in name?

    LGBTIQ people from multicultural or multi-faith backgrounds often face additional challenges around coming out, family acceptance and support from within their own communities. What are the barriers to culturally and linguistically diverse people supporting LGBTIQ rights? How can we promote acceptance of LGBTIQ rights amongst people of faith?

    This Midsumma Festival, join Sam Hibbins MP and other special guests at Chapel Off Chapel for a panel discussion and mixer on the challenges we face and the next steps on the path to LGBTIQ equality.

    Port Phillip New Members Night

    Have you recently joined the Port Phillip Greens or considered joining? Are you keen to meet like minded folks and to learn how you can get involved in local Greens politics? If you answered yes, then our new members night on 30 January is for you!

    27685168036_d9165f14d6_o.jpg

    It was a big year for the Port Phillip Greens in 2016. We came within 500 votes of winning the federal seat of Melbourne Ports, and then achieved astonishing results at the local government elections where we elected 3 Greens to Port Phillip City Council. Most importantly, we had a great time speaking to the community about our vision for a cleaner, greener and more liveable Port Phillip.

    Now we are looking forward to what 2017 holds and we would love to hear the ideas of our prospective, new and recently joined members.

    Our new members evening will provide an opportunity for you to learn a bit about the history of the Greens, ways in which you can get involved locally, and some of our priorities for the year ahead.

    Please join us and be part of the action!

    Celebrating A Decade of Greens in Vic Parliament

    Decade_in_Parl_-_event_header3.jpg

    Come and join us for a fun afternoon of celebrations as we mark 10 years of the Greens in the Victorian Parliament!

    Back in 2006, the Greens made history in Victoria, getting three MPs elected to the state parliament – Colleen Hartland, Greg Barber and Sue Pennicuik. We’ve gone from strength to strength since then, and have more than doubled our presence in parliament with seven MPs across both the lower and upper house.

    Let's celebrate what we’ve been able to achieve together over the past decade. There’ll be food, drinks and entertainment throughout the afternoon. Feel free to drop in for as long as you like.

    Looking forward to seeing you there. All are welcome so you can bring family and friends along too

    Pakington St Geelong West in Geelong West, Australia

    Geelong Pako Festa Parade!

    Come and join the Greens at the biggest multicultural celebration and festival in Victoria - the Geelong Pako Festa!

    The Pako Festa has been held annually since 1983, and sees attendance in excess of 100,000 people, sees participation by around 30 cultural community groups and up to 60 community groups. In proud tradition of standing up for a multicultural Australia, the Greens will be taking part in the 2017 Pako Festa (February 25) as part of the parade.

    We are calling for all who may be interested in participating in the Pako Festa parade with the Greens. The general theme of our section of the parade will be "Think Green, eat green"

    Our section of the parade, however, is limited to 50 participants. If you wish to participate in the parade with us, you'll need to get in fast by RSVPing to this event.

    This will be an excellent and unique opportunity for supporters of the Greens to stand shoulder to shoulder with multicultural Australians, in the Geelong community and beyond.

    Unable to participate in the parade, but still keen to get involved? That's fine, too. Get in contact as there will be other ways that you can help leading up to (particularly with creative stuff such as costumes and signs) and on the day itself.

    Note: parade participation will involve at least two hours of standing, waiting, and walking.
