Illawarra Greens. Social justice, environmental sustainability, peace and non-violence and grassroots democracy.

Mitchell Shakespeare


"I am a lifelong resident of the Shire. I attended Kareela Public School and Caringbah High School, then gained a Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Wollongong. I have worked in central Sydney in insurance, and currently I commute to from Kareela to the University of Sydney, where I am studying for a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in economics.

"When not studying, I can be found attending rallies that demand an end to fossil fuels, and a just transition for communities and workers to sustainable industries. I also volunteer at a men’s shelter in central Sydney.

I believe that Australians are fed up with a parliament run by and for large corporations. The Greens are committed to ending corporate influence, taking action on climate change and creating a future for all of us."
