When I first moved to the western suburbs I was drawn by the history and diversity of the area and in particular Brimbank. After moving to Sunshine from Queensland via Latrobe Valley, I helped establish the Brimbank branch of the Greens. The branch successfully elected to Council the first endorsed Greens candidate soon after the branch’s formation.
Alex has twice been an endorsed Greens candidate for Brimbank City Council.
Living in the western suburbs is fantastic with so many different people from different walks of life. And there is also a precious and unique local environment.
I’m passionate about creating a clean energy economy, with good secure jobs and a caring, more compassionate Victoria. That’s why I’m passionate about being a candidate for the Greens in Sydenham.
Following the aftermath of the attacks on the World Trade Centre in 2001, the Western world reacted impulsively and in the very way we were told we shouldn’t have responded. We started stripping away our personal freedoms and rights.
In Australia, the Howard Government was one of the most ferocious of the Western world.
Despite the limited threat of terrorist attack on Australian soil, Australian people or Australian interests abroad, our Government at that time introduced some of the most regressive anti-terrorism laws. They went even further in eroding our personal freedoms and rights in many respects than the US Patriot Act, which is often considered to be a so-called egregious attack on US citizens’ privacy and personal liberties.
