In 2016, we recorded record-breaking swings in key seats in the federal election, winning Batman on primary votes and only narrowly losing after Liberal preferences to Labor. We increased Local Government representation from 17 to 29 total across the state and elected a record 4 Greens Councillors in Darebin, including the first ever Greens Mayor now in her second term.
This year, we took on a divisive and damaging public postal vote on people's human rights and won marriage equality. We elected our first ever Councillor in Geelong. The QLD Greens got their first lower house seat in state parliament. And together we made history in Northcote with the election of Lidia Thorpe.
We have so much to celebrate.
This Sunday, join Alex Bhathal, Richard Di Natale, Lidia Thorpe and Adam Bandt to celebrate all that we have achieved in this past year, and hear about how we can take these successes all the way to Canberra with a Batman by-election in 2018.
