The Greens: from middle-class environmentalism to the mainstream

2:00am Fri 15 Apr

About this session

Many left-wing people look to the Greens as a progressive alternative to the Labor and Liberal parties. In their early years, they were even involved in protests. Yet as they've come closer to power, they've steadily moved to the right, abandoning protest and chasing Liberal votes in Toorak to try to win office. Can the Greens be a force for change? And how should socialists relate to them?
