This wasn't the 2020 most of us had imagined. First we endured the devastating climate-bushfires and now COVID-19 has knocked us sideways and shut down the global economy. But for many people, things haven’t been easy for a very long time.
Before the pandemic, we were staring down the climate crisis and supercharged economic inequality. The fact is, the major parties’ don’t have a plan that addresses these crises – they support ongoing fossil fuel projects and continue to put their corporate donors before the rest of us.
Now more than ever, politics needs a shake-up. We need a plan that will get us out of the COVID-19 jobs and economic crisis while addressing the climate emergency at the same time. It’s not just possible, it’s essential.
Facilitated by Greens SA Party Director Dominic Mugavin.
