The Australian Greens is a green political party in Australia founded in 1992. It is well known for Bob Brown leading the party in federal parliament from 2005 to 2012. Christine Milne, the current leader, also in the 1980s campaigned against the Franklin Dam in Tasmania and was jailed along with Bob Brown. In 2010 Adam Bandt was elected to the seat of Melbourne and became one of several crossbenchers providing support to the Gillard Labor minority government.
The Greens also discuss other issues than the environment, such as equality, human rights, peace and non-violence.
