The Indigenous incarceration inquiry today announced by the Federal Government is a symbolic recognition of our broken criminal justice system, but comes 25 years after the ground-breaking report from the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody was handed down. The bulk of these recommendations have still not been implemented. Just last month the Bureau […]
With the passing of the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission, the Baird Government has failed to put an end to the long multi-million dollar disaster that is the Ombudsman’s investigation into Operation Prospect. While the bill is a welcome step forward in establishing a single, well-resourced police oversight body and improving police accountability, a number of […]
This speech was delivered on 08.11.2016 in the NSW Upper House. You can read the full debate online here. This is one of these moments when we are looking into the future of not just the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission but also potential changes that have been proposed to ICAC and other oversight bodies. A […]
This speech was delivered on 17.11.2016 in the NSW Upper House. You can read the original contribution here. On 16 January 1988 in the early hours of the morning, a 17‑year‑old Aboriginal boy, Mark Anthony Haines, was found dead on the train tracks outside Tamworth. It had been pouring with rain that night. At all […]
The Greens usually argue for transparency and making all information publicly available – so why don’t we think the Operation Prospect/police bugging report should be released? Prospect is a more than 4 year inquiry into a […]
The NSW Ombudsman’s office has today released their long overdue $10 million report into illegal police bugging. The report has found repeated and systemic illegal bugging by NSW police officers and the Crime Commission. These failures must be addressed by Parliament. Astoundingly no criminal charges are recommended for the illegal bugging, despite dozens of confirmed […]
It’s been a huge year for Sniff Off, the NSW Greens campaign against the use of drug dogs at bars, festivals, and public transport! We’ve put out hundreds of updates on drug dog locations throughout NSW, grown from 8,000 to over 25,000 likes on Facebook, and handed out thousands of flyers at festivals, train stations […]
As the year draws to a close we can look back on some of the campaigning achievements of 2016. It has not been an easy year for progressive politics around the world, but here in NSW we’ve had some results worth celebrating. We have campaigned strongly against forced council amalgamations, resulting in many councils being saved. […]
The NSW Police have today announced that the State Crime Command will review the case of murdered Aboriginal 17 year old Mark Haines. This announcement comes on the 29th anniversary of Mark’s death as his family and supporters joined with Greens MP David Shoebridge to protest the lack of police action at Tamworth Police station. […]
With the announcement that NSW Police Commissioner Scipione will be ending his role in April, the Greens acknowledge Commissioner Scipione’s service and wish him well. The NSW Police Force is well overdue for fresh leadership, with infighting and internal disputes amongst senior police overshadowing the broader work of frontline police for too long. Greens MP […]
The Greens wish new Police Commissioner Mick Fuller well in his new role leading the NSW Police Force. The NSW Police Force is well overdue for fresh leadership, with poor succession planning by the Coalition as well as infighting and internal disputes amongst senior police overshadowing the broader work of frontline police for too long. […]
The Minister for Police Troy Grant has today announced an aggressive, evidence-free package of reforms with the apparent dual purpose of seeing sex offenders face harsher penalties while also reducing the dramatic increases in the prison population. The package allocates more than $200 million dollars which will fund 200 extra staff in Community Corrections and […]
Over the past year there has been a 320 percent increase the number of people charged with drug driving offences in NSW, with young people and residents of low-income areas making up the bulk of the arrests, according to new data released by the state’s crime statistics agency. As reported by Junkee, the data from the Bureau […]
Implementing The NSW Coroner’s recommendations in relation to the Lindt Café Siege is important and necessary step in moving forward but cannot come at the expense of our civil liberties. The Coalition’s announcement to tighten parole and give police “shoot to kill” powers will not make us safer and there is little evidence to suggest […]
The Coalition’s plan to rush new shoot-to-kill police powers through Parliament today will not make us safer and instead pushes NSW closer to a police state. It carries on a trend of laws that empower police including anti-protest, move-on and consorting laws that together endanger our civil liberties. Greens MP and Justice Spokesperson David Shoebridge […]
We’ve spoken to many emergency service workers who want to put a submission into the current bullying inquiry, but have concerns about how making a submission might impact on their employment, and specifically that they have worries that making a submission may lead to them being bullied. The committee understands these concerns, and has a […]
