The senate has done the right thing and rejected the government's proposed anti-worker legislation. This means a double dissolution election is now likely on July 2.
All around the world, more and more people are realising that we need to challenge the billionaire class if we are to have a decent future.
The Socialist Alliance is running in these elections to wage a real campaign to back people power not corporate power.
We want to tax the rich for real and use the money to fund renewable energy and social services.
Only a people's uprising can break the power of the billionaire class and their bought-and-paid-for politicians and that's what our campaign stands for.
You can support our campaign:
1 Make a donation (big or small)
Millions of Americans have donated an average of $27 to support the Bernie Sanders' socialist campaign in the US elections. Can you match that? If you can afford more, we'd appreciate it. Every cent you donate will be used wisely to support a movement for genuine change. (Details here)
