Our Green MPs have been down in Christchurch mucking in to help residents in the aftermath of the earthquake. Kevin Hague, Keith Locke, and Catherine Delahunty speak about their experiences, the needs they encountered, and what, if any green shoots of hope they saw emerging from the destruction.
Under surveillance by the SIS, living with teenage girls and Greenpeace activists above a factory, mushrooms growing in the shower and views of the Sydney Opera house – Green Party MPs recount their most memorable flatting experiences.
This week we celebrate our 10th birthday; 10 years of the Green Party in Parliament. Technically it might be an anniversary, but birthday sounds more fun. Green MPs Keith Locke, Sue Kedgley and co-leaders Russel Norman and Metiria Turei tell us about an extraordinary start in 1999, their personal highlights over the last decade plus their sense of what might happen in the next 10 years.
Keith is in Tonga over the next couple of days, as pro-democracy strikes escalate. frog spoke to him about why he's there, what he's doing, and what's happening. The interview is here (mp3, 8.45 mins, 1.0MB).
