Brunswick Day of Action

Join our movement to turn Brunswick Green this November!

Over the past few months our volunteers have knocked on over 2000 doors around Brunswick to hear about what issues matter most to people. We have seen how powerful these kind of one-to-one discussions can be in shifting votes with the spectacular wins of Adam Bandt at the 2013 Federal election, and Scott Ludlum earlier this year.

While we don’t have lots of money like the old parties, we have been empowering people to connect with their community and have the conversations that we know will get our candidate Tim Read elected.  

On Saturday the 30th of August, we are holding our first Brunswick Day of Action.  We are meeting at The Commons – the new award winning apartments in the centre of Brunswick that stand as an example of the kind of beautiful, sustainable development we can hope to see more of we get Tim into Parliament.

The day will be spent engaging in some basic conversations training and then listening to voters in the community, with both morning and afternoon sessions that you can come along to (or all day if you are super keen!).

Morning session - meeting at 10:00am

Afternoon session - meeting at 2:00pm

The team will get together for a lunch at the Commons at 1pm. We'll finish up at Tim’s house in Brunswick at 6pm for a party to celebrate our achievements for the day.

Please RSVP here.

Brunswick Campaign Launch

Brunswick Campaign Launch

On Friday August 22nd, Tim Read is launching the campaign to win the state seat of Brunswick in the 2014 Victorian Election at the Brunswick Bowls club.  Come along for an evening of local food and entertainment and hear from Tim, Federal MP Adam Bandt, and Greg Barber about our strategy and how you can be involved in turning Brunswick Green this November.

We need real change in government more than ever. Health, education, public transport and our environmental protection laws are under attack from both Abbott and the state Liberals, and we know that Labor won’t act when it comes to the crunch.

Victoria can lead the way against this destructive agenda – but we need Tim and the Greens in the middle of Parliament to do it.

Tim is a medical doctor working in public health.  He has lived in Brunswick for over 20 years, and will stand up for what our community and environment needs, to keep our suburb, city, and state healthy and sustainable.

We have an excellent chance at winning the seat of Brunswick, join us at the launch and help make it happen. 

Please RSVP here.
