Jonathan Sriranganathan reflects on his time in a wide ranging interview with Alex Banbridge just before stepping down as Gabba Ward councillor in the Brisbane City Council.

Brisbane City Council has charged Greens councillor Jonathan Sri in connection with a protest in the Queen Street Mall in September 2020. Alex Bainbridge reports.

Greens Councillor Jonathan Sri, who represents The Gabba ward in Brisbane, says he will not be installing the COVID-19 surveillance app and explains why other measures, without any nasty stings, would be more effective in helping reduce the spread of the pandemic.

The South Brisbane Greens held a forum on "Communal Luxury: how to create a future for all of us" on February 28.

Speakers included Greens' Griffith candidate Max Chandler-Mather, Natalie Osborne from Griffith University and Gabba ward Councillor Jonathan Sri.

Campaigners against the inappropriate Absoe development in Brisbane's West End scored a small but important victory on September 14. The state government “called in” the approval that had previously been granted by the Brisbane City Council. This means the state government will reassess the development approval.

This decision comes on the back of a concerted community campaign supported by Greens councillor Jonathan Sri.

"We can't afford your units and we can't afford the bus; if you keep ignoring us, we're gonna make a fuss!" rang through the streets of West End as 150 people marched against the proposed development of the old Absoe site on August 21. Greens councillor on the Brisbane City Council and one of the organisers of the rally, Jonathan Sri, told the crowd that the original proposal for the site involved seven tall buildings with no connection to the street or the surrounding community.
