THE FUTURE IS GREEN
The future of Australia and the whole planet are at risk because of climate change, environmental vandalism, unsustainable consumption and the threat of wars over shrinking resources. Neither Labor nor the Coalition can provide the answers. They don’t even understand the questions. That’s because they are interested only in the short-term – as far as the next election.
The only party with vision, looking ahead and planning for the long-term future is THE GREENS. The Greens are working for a better world, and they want you to help them.
The Greens were founded on the principle of grass-roots democracy. Only by involving each local community in the decisions that affect it can politicians ever really understand the needs of our communities.
The Greens want to build a more caring and cooperative, a fairer and more sustainable world. The strength of The Greens is that we are all ordinary people working together for a better future. You can make a difference. We invite you to join the Greens and help bring about that better world.
What does membership of The Greens involve?
Since we are a party that values the participation of all members in decision making, we always want to hear your ideas. We want to build on the strength of your vision and your passions. When you join you will find yourself in the company of like-minded people.
Membership carries no obligation to attend meetings, to help in elections or engage in any other campaigns. It’s entirely up to you. Every member is welcome to contribute at a level that suits their own situation, their special talents, their pocket and their motivation.
Ballina Greens meets on the third Monday of each month at 5.30pm at Cherry St Bowling Club, Ballina.
