Since the 2010 Federal election, support for the ALP has collapsed while at the same time, the Greens have enjoyed historically high levels of representation and electoral support.

What is happening here? Are we seeing the emergence of a third major force in Australian politics? Is the ALP under electoral threat of being replaced by its progressive counterparts?

In our August forum, we ask these questions as well as what approach should be taken by the ALP toward the Greens? Has the relationship helped or hindered the Gillard government? How should the ALP move forward with the Greens going into the next election? As allies or opponents?

To discuss the topic, we have three major speakers from across the progressive side of politics.

Kelvin Thomson MP – ALP Federal Member for Wills.

Tim Watts – former Adviser to Premier John Brumby, and author of “What Labor’s History can teach us about the rise of the Greens” – a recent article in The Voice.

Janet Rice – Lead Victorian Greens candidate for the Senate

Recorded at the Melbourne City Conference Centre, 8/8/12
