Greens stand with Adam Goodes

Media Release
Richard Di Natale 30 Jul 2015

Australian Greens Leader, Dr Richard Di Natale today expressed the Greens support for Adam Goodes.

“Adam Goodes is a formidable Australian, a champion sportsman and an inspiring advocate for a better and more equal Australia,” said Senator Di Natale.

“The racism and hostility he has faced for celebrating his culture is deeply disappointing. As a nation we should feel proud, not threatened, by the strong and enduring culture of First Australians.

“The AFL has a proud history of tackling racism and I applaud those individuals within the AFL and media who have taken a stand against what is unacceptable behaviour.

“The Greens stand with Adam too.”
