Trans rights are human rights | Green Left Show #24

Trans rights are human rights | Green Left Show #24

July 11, 2022

The latest episode of the Green Left Show focuses on trans rights.

There have been growing and coordinated international attack on trans rights. We've seen this in extreme form in the United States and this was echoed in the Australian federal election with explicit LNP support for transphobic candidate Catherine Deves.

This show discusses the reasons for the right wing attacks on trans rights; the issues around trans women in sports; why the ALP should not bring in a new Religious Discrimination Bill; positive campaigns such as for transition leave and more.

Guests on the show are trans activists Charlie Murphy and Nova Sobieralski.

Defend the right to protest! Abolish NSW anti-protest laws

Defend the right to protest! Abolish NSW anti-protest laws

July 10, 2022

Suzanne James talks to NSW Greens MP Abigail Boyd about NSW increasingly draconian Anti-Protest Laws. They discuss the recent expansion of Police powers under these laws which allow the State to specifically target protesters who are attempting to bring the NSW Government to account for their lack of action on climate change.

Abigail outlines what the NSW Greens are doing to force Government transparency on how and why these laws came about, and what supporters can do to help the campaign to have them rescinded.

Voluntary Assisted Dying becomes law in NSW

Voluntary Assisted Dying becomes law in NSW

May 31, 2022

View this podcast online:Video: Voluntary Assisted Dying becomes law in NSW

Following a 10-year, grass roots campaign by advocacy organisations, backed by significant and sustained community support, Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD) has became law in NSW, the Upper House vote in favour ratified by the Legislative Assembly on May 19.

It gives the terminally ill in NSW the same rights as all other Australian States - the option to peacefully end their lives and unbearable suffering, at a time and place of their choosing.

Following this historic victory for compassion and democracy, Suzanne James catches up with Shayne Higson, Vice President of Dying With Dignity NSW, who has been fighting for this reform for almost 10 years, and VAD Advocate Greg Connell, whose family’s VAD story stretches back three generations.

They talk about how they felt when the Bill was passed, what’s next for both of them, and the continuance of the VAD campaign federally to restore Northern and Australian Capital Territory rights.

This video is dedicated to the many brave and selfless advocates for Voluntary Assisted Dying, who died waiting for NSW to pass this reform.
