Q&A with Mehreen Faruqi, Australian Greens Deputy Leader: Colonialism, imperialism and the struggle for a better world

The Australian Greens Deputy Leader, Senator Mehreen Faruqi, is visiting Brissie from NSW for the weekend, so in between her other commitments, we’ve squeezed in a casual Q&A session in a park in Ashgrove.

Join Greens candidate for Mayor of Brisbane, Jonathan Sriranganathan, and our candidate for Enoggera Ward, Quintessa Denniz, for a chat with Mehreen about the Greens responsibilities in resisting and critiquing colonialism and imperialism, as well as whatever other questions people feel like asking.

We’ll also be providing heaps of snacks, so bring along a picnic blanket and share some food with us under the trees in Dorrington Park while we think and chat about pathways to systemic change.

Straight after this forum, Dr Faruqi will be joining us as we head out to doorknock residents in support of Quintessa Denniz's campaign for Enoggera Ward. We always pair up newcomers with experienced doorknockers, and run a short training session first, so everyone's welcome! If you're interested in perhaps joining us for a couple of hours of doorknocking after the forum, you can register via this link.

This discussion is taking place on Aboriginal land, in the wake of Invasion Day. We encourage everyone to get along to the Invasion Day march on 26 January to hear from First Nations voices and think deeply about our complicity in oppressive systems. Sovereignty was never ceded.

Please note that this is an outdoor event in a park, so we will be cancelling in the event of heavy weather. If it's looking rainy, check your email inbox on the morning of Saturday 27 January for updates.
