Redfern Station deserved an accessible upgrade after years of community efforts and an investment of $166 million. But now, we've hit a snag: access gates at Marian Street and Little Eveleigh Street will be locked from 1:30 am to 4:30 am.
This isn't what locals were promised or advocated for. Underground platforms 11 and 12 for the T4 Eastern Suburbs and Illawarra Line also remain without lifts, and inaccessible for some members of our community.
Join us in calling on the government to deliver on its commitment to a fully accessible Redfern Station with 24-hour access to the new southern concourse and lifts for platforms 11 and 12.
Sign the petition today and stand with us in the call for 24-hour access to Redfern's southern concourse, and lifts for platforms 11 and 12.
Your support will help ensure that Government fulfils its promise of a Redfern Station that is accessible, convenient, and inclusive for all commuters, at all times.
The cost of rent is out of control, evictions are on the rise, and too many renters are just one rent hike away from homelessness.
This is a crisis, and it requires an urgent, emergency response.
A freeze on rents isn’t only possible, it’s urgently necessary. We need to make renting secure and affordable.
But every day the government refuses to act is another day that renters face eviction because of an unfair rent hike they can’t afford.
Will you sign now to call on the government to freeze rents now?
Add your name and call on the NSW Parliament to take urgent action to fix the rental crisis, including:
- Freeze and cap rents
- End unfair evictions
- Allow pets in rentals
- Ban rent bidding and intrusive rental applications
- Massively invest in public, social, and affordable housing
The government has proposed laws that experts are warning would entrench rental auctions and further drive up the already sky-high cost of rent.
Renters deserve a secure and affordable place to live - not to be pitted against each other just to secure a roof over their head.
But the government’s proposed legislation would take us backwards and make NSW the first state to legally entrench rental auctions.
It’s not too late to fix these bad laws, but we need to show the government that people want them changed.
Will you sign the petition to ban rent bidding and say no to rental auctions?
Add your name and call on the NSW Labor Government to:
- Abandon reforms that would entrench rent auctions in NSW;
- Ban all rent biding.
Our rights at work have never been handed to us.
Whether it’s workers compensation, the eight-hour working day, penalty rates or leave entitlements like sick leave, parental leave and public holidays - our workplace rights have always been hard fought and won.
And this year we’ve seen more workers out on the street, on the picket line, and taking strike action than ever before.
Teachers, nurses and midwives, transport workers, early childhood educators, university staff, and public sector workers have all walked off the job for an increase in pay, better conditions, an end to staff shortages and more resources.
In NSW there is no guaranteed right to strike and take industrial action - will you add your name to show your support for the right to strike?
Tell the NSW Government that you support workers and unions' right to strike to protect their industrial rights and working conditions.
Coal and gas mines, logging native forests and land clearing are threatening our water, our climate, our environment, our native animals and our future. Governments, corporations, and billionaires who enable and profit off the climate crisis are letting us down.
Liberal and Labor continue to take millions in donations from coal and gas billionaires, while approving new coal and gas projects and fast tracking land clearing that could push koalas to extinction.
The only way we can address the climate crisis is by ending coal and gas and moving to a renewable, fossil fuel free future.
Only the Greens have a plan to fight the climate crisis, make polluters pay, and grow jobs to repower our economy renewably.
Will you sign now to move beyond coal and gas to a renewable future, end native forest logging and stop the extinction crisis?
We’re in a climate emergency, we must end coal and gas.
Add your name to the call to move beyond coal and gas to a renewable future, end native forest logging and stop the extinction crisis.
Our public sector workers – which include nurses, midwives, health workers, paramedics, teachers, transport and frontline workers who all work tirelessly – deserve more than thanks.
They’ve been on the frontline of crisis after crisis, keeping our communities safe, connected, and running.
But the Liberal National Government’s cruel public sector wage freeze means as the cost of living and inflation rises public sector wages are going backwards - despite giving pay rises to their political mates.
It's time to scrap the public sector wage cap and ensure our teachers, nurses, paramedics, transport and public sector workers have a fair wage that will, at the very least, keep up with the cost of living.
The Greens will always support fair pay, better conditions, and proper resourcing so public sector workers can do their job safely.
Sign now to scrap the wage cap!
Tell the Premier to scrap the public sector wage cap, and give public sector workers the pay, conditions and resources they need to do their job.
Greens spokesperson for WestConnex Jenny Leong has called on Premier Mike Baird to immediately clarify the authorship of the WestConnex Updated Strategic Business Case, to allay serious concerns that the lack of attribution is so that the author can avoid liability or public scrutiny if the content is found to be flawed.
“Before we have even begun a detailed assessment of the 320 page, heavily redacted, WestConnex Updated Strategic Business Case, it’s clear that there is a glaring omission: there is NO author.”
“Unlike the 2013 WestConnex Business Case Executive Summary, which was attributed to the Sydney Motorway Project Office, this latest Business Case is not attributed to any individual, organisation or department.
“Given the only identifiable marker on the document is a generic logo - “NSW Making it Happen” – it falls to the Premier to clarify who in the NSW Government is responsible.Read more
