‘Coal - is it worth it?' is a new documentary by veteran filmmaker John Davis who tragically died in a helicopter crash while trying to expose damage caused by the Shenhua coal mine. His family and friends completed the film in his memory.

The film exposes the environmental damage wrought by coal mines and asks us…is it worth it?

After the film
Adrian talks about the film

Adrian Jones, Greens candidate for Bradfield, met supporters at Roseville Cinema after watching the environmental film, "Elemental".

Mr. Jones reflected on the themes developed in the film and how these themes paralleled the enormous environmental challenges we face in Australia. Mr. Jones said that voters felt relieved when Turnbull replaced Abbott but were very quickly disappointed when Turnbull backed away from action on climate change and gave up his stance on marriage equality. Mr. Jones condemned the Turnbull government's support for coal mining and CSG extraction.

Hornsby Council's Budget: a “gift” to Transurban and M7 Westlink

The Greens and others within the municipality, can't see why a single council needs to bear one-third of the cost of any part of a state and national road infrastructure project. Just because the tunnel entrance happens to be in Hornsby. This geographic fact, should not mean that Hornsby is to be responsible for the negative impacts of the construction project. The payment for the disposal of tunnel spoil within the Hornsby area is a case in point.

Greens call for urgent action on affordable housing

Greens candidate for Berowra, Emma Heyde, has called on governments to act on creating affordable housing in the Berowra electorate.

Ms Heyde said, “There is a myth that more development solves the problem of people on average incomes not being able to afford housing close to where they work.

“We’ve seen massive apartment developments go up – but prices are going up just as fast.

“Why aren’t the Liberal governments at local, state and federal level in the Hornsby area working cooperatively to address the fact that people like teachers, nurses, police and small business owners often can’t afford to live near where they work?

“Wages increased by 2.3% in Sydney last year. House prices increased by 22.9%.

“People in suburbs that have seen massive growth in property prices like Dural and Pennant Hills worry that even while they’ve enjoyed big gains, their own kids can’t afford to live anywhere near them.

Adrian Jones, Greens candidate for Bradfield, also offered his support for Emma's campaign, We are ready to support Emma's and Adrian's campaigns.

"Why fight so hard for the bluest of blue-ribbon seats? Why challenge when the Liberal party think they can simply write the next man's name on the ballot paper and have him enjoy the safest of safe seats for as long as he chooses?

"It's because people have seen through the Liberal agenda, which is to outsource, to privatise, and to sell off.
