Our get together dinners are great fun and a great way to meet and mix with locals that share a lot of the same values. They also raise monies for our branch that we spend locally in our election campaigns. 2018 will see both Federal and a Victorian State election, so we are gearing up to run fairly decent campaigns.

All hell breaks loose when the son of a Muslim cleric lies about his medical entrance exam scores in Ali’s Wedding, a wholesale charmer based on the real-life experiences of its leading man, Osamah Sami.
The Age critics have announced that the winner of their award for Best Australian feature film shown at MIFF2017 is Jeffrey Walker’s crowd-pleasing Ali’s Wedding – congratulations to the filmmakers and all involved!
If Twitter is anything to go by, our audiences agree.
“You’ve called it: “possibly the best Australian film in decades”
“an “absolute gem of a film”
“a charming film full of heart. My #MIFF2017 favourite so far”
“a great new comic voice in Australian cinema”

Clare Davey Greens Councillor for Rosstown
Clare is one of five new Councillors elected in The City of Glen Eira. Thank you to all the people that helped in this achievement.
If you are thinking of becoming active in helping with the Greening of Bayside or Glen Eira, now is the time to get involved. Our Greens Branch welcomes all. You do not have to be a member of The Greens to attend a meeting, our meeting are fun and informative and there is scope for people to work effectively for change. Our next meeting is 7pm on Monday 14th November at Godfrey Street Community House, Bentleigh. Godfrey Street and the Community House is just off Centre Road very close to the Bentleigh Rail Station.
Mixed news with the results, but very happy to say that Clare Davey won the number two position in Rosstown Ward, Glen Eira.
Sadly Thomas in Camden Ward, Glen Eira and Peter in Central Ward, Bayside missed out in gaining a position. The disappointing outcome does not detract from the more than excellent campaigns they ran and the support they received from members and friends.
A big THANK YOU to all the good people that helped us with letterboxing, hosting a sign, doorknocking, phone-banking, donating funds, and the long list of things that are needed to be done to help run a campaign.
BAYSIDE ….Peter Novacco our Greens Candidate in Central Ward is running an open ticket, and ask that you vote ‘1’ Peter Novacco and number all remaining boxes according to your own preferences
Peter further recommends preferencing the independents highly, for example:
Peter NOVACCO, Harry PONTIKIS, Stephen LE PAGE, Evan PACKER, Zach BASSANETTI, Clifford MAILLARD, Pauline TAYLOR, Alex CENSOR, Hana HARTNEY, Sonia CASTELLI, James LONG, Rob GRINTER, Bruce LOWE, Sue HARDIMAN.
