Benedict Coyne for Dickson

Hi Dickson,

I’m Benna, a father, a fiance, a muso, a poet, history buff, and an international business and human rights lawyer.

Throughout my career I have represented a wide range of communities from around our country: from farmers, to small business owners, to children and young people, people with disability, Traditional Owners, and more. I have taken on the biggest companies in the world to protect the rights of Australians. I have fought for Queenslanders to protect their land and properties from big multinational companies, fought hard for the rights of children in the education system, and stood up for entire communities whose land had been polluted by toxic pollution.

I am here to offer you a fresh change, and am standing to promote economic justice and improve the health of our democracy. I’m here to reinvigorate the concept of ‘fair-go’ and protect the rights of us all. I’m here to give a voice to you, and to stand up for a future for all of us.

I am proudly standing with The Australian Greens, a party fighting to fix our broken political system and put integrity, decency and dignity back into our democracy. The Australian Greens are fighting for positive economic and social change, that benefits you and our community. The Australian Greens are forward-looking, planning for our kids’ future, and their kids’ future, as well as the here and now.

It’s a great pleasure to be here and I look forward to chatting with you.

 

Benna
