Emerald Moon is a Brisbane-based Leftist activist and former candidate for the Australian Greens who’s passionate about climate action and renters’ rights. Emerald ran for the Greens in the safe Liberal seat of Bowman in 2019 and is currently working on the up-coming Brisbane local and Queensland state election.
Amid the insanity of COVID-19 (I hope you’re all okay!), I ask Emerald about how she arrived at her socialist politics, how the Queensland Greens are making real progress with socialist ideas and policies, the truly cooked housing situation in Australia and how we can have a revolution while also practising social distancing.
