A STIFLING CLIMATE: DEMOCRACY, COAL PROTEST LAWS AND THE CLIMATE MOVEMENT

The Climate Action Centre, supported by the LSS Equality and Environment officers, present a public forum on the new offences introduced to deter protest at coal-fired power stations.

Late last year the Victorian Parliament created two new offences specifically aimed at deterring protest activity at coal-fired power stations. Panel members will discuss the legal and civil liberties implications of the laws as the ways to understand and respond to this narrowing of the space for political participation.

Socialist Alliance Public meeting: Climate, Racism & the right-wing direction of Australian politics

Hear from Socialist Alliance candidates Margarita Windisch, Sharon Firebrace and Trent Hawkins on the issues in Australian politics.
Has Australia escaped the financial crisis? Why are the major parties refusing to act on climate change and scapegoating refugees? Does Australia have too big a population?

Following the discussion, there will be a report on the Socialist Alliance election campaign.
