Donald Trump’s ban on immigration from many Muslim majority countries is affecting many people in Melbourne, including members of the Somali, Sudanese and Iranian communities.

Sunday 5 February, 2pm – 4pm

North Melbourne Community Centre, 49-53 Buncle St, North Melbourne



Greens MPs for Melbourne Adam Bandt and Ellen Sandell are hosting an Emergency Community Meeting to share information on implications of the ban for people in Melbourne and to discuss what we can do in Melbourne to resist attacks on the Muslim community by Trump and his Australian supporters. You are invited to come along and find out more about how the ban will affect you, your family and the people in your community.

Now more than ever it is important to stand up for the rights of all people and to stand shoulder to shoulder with people facing discrimination.


Somali and Arabic interpreters provided. Wheelchair accessible venue.

The Greens will vote against the Victorian Labor Government’s electric vehicle tax in Parliament. Victoria is the only...


Supporting our local COVID-19 recovery

Throughout the pandemic, the Greens MPs and I have always supported a health-led approach to the pandemic. All along, we supported the Premier’s and Chief Health Officer’s actions to keep Victorians safe. However, we also haven't shied away from advocating to improve decisions where there were mistakes or extra needs...
