Queensland has lost a strong dissenting voice but the appetite for social change is stronger than ever

“It’s with great sadness that we’ve received the news that Larissa Waters will be resigning from the Australian senate,” Councillor Sri said today.
“While it’s unclear what will happen from here, it’s a testament to Larissa’s integrity of character that she made the decision to resign without a moment’s hesitation.”
“Queensland has lost a great Senator and one of the only representatives who was willing to take on the major parties and their corporate masters.”

“Whether you were concerned about putting ordinary people ahead of big corporations, making housing more affordable, stopping rampant climate change or opposing Labor and the LNP’s race to the bottom on refugees, you’ve lost your greatest ally in Queensland.”
“Larissa was the only Queensland Senator willing to publicly take on powerful corporate interests like the Adani coal mine, the Queen’s Wharf Mega-Casino and the big banks.”
“Big gambling, mining corporations and property developers will be celebrating and cracking the champagne today, and I think that’s the best compliment Larissa could receive.”
“But one of our great strengths as a movement and one of the biggest differences between us and the major parties is that we are member-driven, which gives us greater flexibility and resilience during challenging times. The party is bigger than any one individual.”
The Greens aren’t just a political party – we’re a powerful grassroots movement that draws strength from our thousands of volunteers and members.”
“As our movement continues to grow, we’ll keep fighting for a future where everyone has access to affordable housing, a strong sense of purpose, and meaningful power over the decisions that affect their lives.”
“Right now, our focus is on building that movement, picking up seats in the coming state election and holding the big end of town to account.”
