Socialist Alliance is committed to a sustainable urban environment. We will fight for the rights of working people, pensioners, migrants, indigenous communities and the environment.
We say that the resources of Greater Geelong City Council can be better used to benefit all residents, providing much needed services and cleaning up our environment. We would expand council democracy so that residents have a direct say in the big issues affecting us. all.
Our Policy Priorities:
Council must call on the state government to extend dramatically public transport in the region. This would have an immediate effect on reducing carbon emissions. I would demand: A light rail connection between Geelong, Bellarine & Surfcoast Buses every 10 minutes Buses that connect with train se rvices Review and overhaul the inefficient, indirect routes that we currently have Trains every 30 minutes to Melbourne in off peak times
Free & frequent public transport
Let’s demand a Council that puts people before profit and ordinary people before developers. We need to bring back all council services into council hands. I would introduce: a referendum on any issue if 10% of residents call for it and a community consultation process that allows residents to set council planning and budget priorities
Council Must Serve the People
The council is an extension of the community and should set an example with workplace rights and standards. It should not use antiunion laws to drive down wages and conditions or to harass workers. The idea that this is good management that saves money is completely wrong. Councillors have a right and responsibility to take an interest in employment conditions in our community. I was disgusted by the attacks on workers in the infamous SteakGate affair. “I've known Bronwyn for over ten years now. She's been a great union activist fighting for the rights of her fellow workmates. I'm sure she'd bring the same energy and determination to campaigning for the rights and well-being of her local community. She wouldn’t just be a good representative; she'd be an out on the ground activist as well.”
Sam Wainwright, Fremantle City Councillor and member of Socialist Alliance and the Maritime Union of Australia
Using a combination of wind and solar power and improved energy efficiency, Geelong could dramatically reduce its reliance on coal fired power. Retooling FORD, supporting the construction of a solar panel factory and other sustainable projects would provide alternative and green employment opportunities to the growing army of unemployed manufacturing workers in Geelong. I would demand: Zero emissions now! Capture storm water and implement other water saving measures Support community food gardens Environmental standards for all new building approvals.
Make Geelong a Climate Action Council
Local council must employ sustainable practises and policies while increasing community participation. I’d like to see a discussion about the use of the Geelong Golf Course land. Why can’t we keep it in public hands for housing or recreation? There are no public BBQ facilities in this ward for one thing! We need a lot more public housing for low income earners. Council and the State government need to invest and consult widely. All new residential and commercial developments should contain at least 20% low rent housing. We need strict council monitoring of developers with no loopholes.
