Factional fighting overshadows importance of apology and undermines progressive reform

Media Release
Christine Milne 21 Mar 2013

"Today the Labor factions gave Tony Abbott a major leg-up, threatening the future of progressive reforms and undermining the dignity and overshadowing the importance of the national apology to those impacted by forced adoptions," said Greens Leader Christine Milne.

"It's quite clear that only the Greens are united and committed to taking up the fight to Tony Abbott at this year's federal election with a clear vision, and whilst Labor is embroiled in in-fighting, we want the months leading up to the election to deliver a strong mining tax so that we have the revenue to fund a $50 a week increase to Newstart and introduce the Gonski school reforms."
