The Greens Party WA

The Greens (WA) is a member of the Australian Greens, one of the many Green political parties worldwide.

Details

  • Government:State

Description

Green parties have an expansive vision that challenges the narrow economic focus of the major parties. Green parties are often misrepresented as single issue parties. However, our vision of the future is based on the four interconnecting pillars of social justice, ecological sustainability, peace and nonviolence, and participatory democracy.

The Greens (WA) was established in 1990 following the merger of the WA Green Party and the Green Earth Alliance, which was itself the product of an earlier merger between the Alternative Coalition, the Vallentine Peace Group and Green Development. All these groups drew inspiration from the West German Greens (as they then were) as well as the many successful community campaigns in WA and throughout Australia.

The Greens (WA) worked closely with the Australian Greens but did not become formal members until 2003 when The Greens (WA) held a ballot of all the membership on the question of formally joining the Australian Greens confederation. There was an eighty per cent vote in favour. On the 11th of October 2003 at the Australian Greens National Conference the Greens (WA) were formally accepted as members of the Australian Greens.

The Greens WA have a growing and vibrant membership which continues to work towards embedding our four pillars in political decision making at local, State and Federal government levels.

WA Police Historical Society

  • Local Clubs:Special Interest

Details

  • Government:State

Description

The Western Australia Police Historical Society (Inc) was established by serving Police Officers in 1987. With support from Commissioner Brian Bull, our Collection was housed on Police premises until Mr Bull’s retirement in 1994.

His successor did not support the Society so we were forced to seek other storage facilities and retired Officers were required to fill the void.  The WA Police Union subsequently gave us an office and facilities for storage, in order that we could continue.

In November 2006 we were able to move into the premises at 57 Lincoln Street, Highgate Commissioner O’Callaghan leased the old Highgate Hill Police Station built 1897 and the Police quarters built 1906 (pictured above) to the Society with a 10 year renewable term. The Society has since taken residence in Scarborough, at 174 Scarborough Beach Road. 

In addition we secured a lease with the Water Corporation on their redundant sewage (tower) building, which is adjacent, for a lecture, meeting and work room. All these buildings are Heritage listed.

We established offices and a Museum in the Police quarters and restored the interior of the Police Station and cells to appear as if the Station is still in operation. Our main purpose is to preserve Police history, whether it be with aretfacts, photographs or documents, together with the personal histories of  former Officers. Organised group tours are conducted by appointment.

A quarterly Newsletter consisting of 8 to 12 pages titled The  Peelers Gazette, is produced. This has  a circulation of  170 copies and is produced in hard copy. It covers the activities of the Society as well as a feature article on some aspect of WA Police history.

The Society currently has 103 members, with a nomination fee set at $10.00  plus $10.00 annually. Monthly Meetings take place at 10am, on the first Tuesday of the month, with the exception of November when it is on the 2nd Tuesday. In January we are in recess.
