The Greening of Politics – speech by Greens Leader Senator Bob Brown

On October 22, 2009 four Green Party Taiwan representatives (Ying Hsuan Li, Karl Haby, Yi Show Chen and Keli Yen) attended the Green New Deal Conference in Melbourne, Australia with a mission to meet members of Australia’s Green political scene and share ideas together regarding the localization of the Global Green New Deal into the Asia Pacific region in general and Taiwan in particular.

The two-day conference began with a keynote speech by Senator Bob Brown on the topic of “the greening of politics”.  Following are highlights drawn from his speech:



  有關10月2日媒體報導「我參與氣候公約遭矮化」乙事,經查我非政府組織進行與會報名時,係以我正式國名「R.O.C. Taiwan」作為所在國家名稱,但聯合國屢次擅自將我與會單位聯絡地址資訊強行變更為China,我與會成員於1995年召開氣候公約第一次締約國大會時即向大會提出抗議,爾後歷次與會亦陸續提出書面或口頭抗議,惟涉及聯合國規章,迄今仍未獲妥善處理。過去民進黨執政八年,每年參加締約國大會受到同樣的待遇,其所面臨的國際政治現實及困境與目前相同。因此,部分在野黨人士,近日以此指責馬政府為「一再退守」、「太過分」、「太離譜」,明顯是以放縱自己人,嚴以責人之「雙重標準」誤導民眾,獲取個人政治利益。新政府上台後積極宣示將推動我國有意參與聯合國相關周邊專業組織或公約,則是希望為此困境找到突破與妥善解決之道。


Why The Rush for Nuclear Power?

The Kalikasan Institute raises concerns why there is a rush by proponents of H.B. 4631 seeking the recommissioning of the mothballed Bataan Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP).

The Philippines is endowed with sufficient renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and geothermal that if sufficiently developed as intended by the recently passed Renewable Energy Law will be more than enough to meet our energy needs in the next few decades.


Nepalese Climate Action - December 6

THE newly formed network based in Kathmandu, Nepalese Youth for Climate Action, are organising two major events to be held in Butwal and Kathmandu on December 6, 2008.

With the help of local NGOs Clean Energy Nepal (CEN) and Collective Institution for Research and Action (CIRA), many young people have been involved in the organisation of these events.

In Kathmandu, 500 participants will be gathered at a local sports ground to start a Run for Climate.

Joining them will be 50 electric cycles, and local experts and celebrities.


Walk Against Warming, Australia

The Global Day of Action came early to Australia when, on 15 November 2008, a Walk Against Warming saw concerned citizens from Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania and Northern Territory come together in their respective cities to show our political leaders that Australians are deeply concerned about global warming.

These photos are from the Brisbane walk where local campaigners, Elissa Jenkins and Emma Hine, held an APGN banner and were followed behind by many Greens supporters with their Green triangles.
