David Shoebridge No 2 on the Greens NSW Senate team will join local Greens candidates, Charmian Eckersley, Newcastle, Keith Parsons, Shortland and Suzanne Pritchard, Charlton, at Nobbys Beach, the site of the recent grounding of the Pasha Bulka on Wednesday 10 October at 1.15 pm.
The Hunter can expect more of the violent storms that led to the Pasha Bulka’s dangerous and costly stay on Nobbys Beach.
The Greens have been warning of impending climate change for over two decades and urging governments to wean themselves off dangerous dependence on fossil fuels and to actively support renewable energy.
There has never been a greater need for a strong Greens voice in the Senate and for a strong vote for Greens candidates in the Lower House to drive home the lesson to the major parties that they must get serious about climate change.
David Shoebridge is a Greens councillor and former Deputy Lord Mayor of Woollahra, the heart of Wentworth, Malcolm Turnbull’s electorate and a hot spot in the Tasmanian pulp mill debate.
He is also a barrister and the official NSW Greens spokesman on Industrial Law, and outspoken critic of the Howard Government’s Work Choices and Labor’s “Work Choices Lite.”
David and the Greens candidates welcome and interviews and /or photo opportunities.
