Labor’s Federal Member for Calwell, Maria Vamvakinou has been nominated for Crikey Person of the Year in recognition of her courage during a press conference regarding the Israel-Hamas conflict on Thursday, 16 November.

Crikey praised Ms Vamvakinou alongside other nominees for what they say took “a great deal of courage” in making their stance alongside the Greens in announcing their support for a ceasefire in Gaza.
