    Pride March with Queer Greens

    Image: Queer Greens at Pride 2017

    Pride March is the key public celebration of LGBTIQ culture, and we'll be marching under the Queer Greens Victoria banner to show that the Greens are fighting for the rights of LGBTIQ Victorians.

    Together in 2017 we took on a damaging, divisive and costly public survey on our rights. And we won. 

    Join us in marching to celebrate how far we have come and how much we have achieved - and to show that we won't  be going anywhere until we have full equality and acceptance. 

    We'll assemble from 12:30pm at the Corner of Fitzroy St & Lakeside Dr, St Kilda before we march with Pride.

    Free West Papua Campaign 2018 Update with Benny Wenda and Richard Di Natale

    Join Benny Wenda at the Free West Papua Campaign 2018 Update and Planning Evening in Melbourne, directly from the Chairman of the United Liberation Movement for West Papua.

    We are aiming to have as many Free West Papua Campaign friends, families and supporters as possible at this very important event. 2018 will be a vital year in developing and extending our Free West Papua Campaign networks and support. Given that the petition calling for an internationally supervised vote for an independent West Papua reached the United Nations Decolonisation Comittee in 2017, we must take this opportunity to maximise the momentum towards a free West Papua. In August 2017 six young British swimmers covered a 69km journey up the length of Lake Geneva. They carried with them the petition of the people of West Papua and the cries of a nation in waiting. Banned by the Government of Indonesia, the West Papuan Peoples’ Petition demanded an internationally supervised vote and the human right to self-determination. Smuggled between villages, 1.8 million (over 70% of the indigenous population) West Papuans signed the banned petition in our largest show of support for a referendum on independence. The act of 'Free Choice' in July 1969 was a sham, where 1,025 Indigenous West Papuan men and women were threatened and directed how to vote by a show of hands. The event was noted by the United Nations in General Assembly resolution 2505 (XXIV), without qualification as to whether it complied with the authorising New York Agreement, and without qualification as to whether it was a legitimate act of "self-determination", as referred to and described in United National General Assembly resolutions 1514 and 1541 (XV) respectively.

    Next month Benny Wenda will be returning to his home in exile, having been visiting the South Pacific for ULMWP meetings. He will be stopping in Melbourne specifically for this event and to meet with Melbourne’s West Papuan community. Following his talk there will be a Q&A session with other Free West Papua Campaign activists Jacob Rumbiak and Ronny Kareni, West Papuan singing and dance performances and West Papuan food to enjoy. 

    Please come to hear the words of Benny Wenda, who has been living in exile in England for 14 years, since his escape as a political prisoner in 2003.

    Colleen Hartland's Retirement Party

    Colleen Hartland

    For more than a decade, Colleen has been a fierce advocate for her community in Melbourne's western suburbs and has represented our Greens values in state parliament. 

    Colleen was elected to the parliament in 2006, together with Sue Pennicuik and Greg Barber, as the first Greens MPs in the Victorian Parliament, has she has helped build our party to the movement it is today.

    Colleen has helped bring about some of the most significant legislative reforms in the state. Most recently this included passing voluntary assisted dying laws, to give terminally ill people greater choice at the end of their lives.

    Colleen's immense contribution to her community in the west, and across Victoria, will leave enormous shoes to fill. 

    Join us to celebrate and farewell Colleen at her retirement party!
