Ken Canning

I am a First Nations activist, poet and playwright from the Kunja Clan of the Bidjara Peoples of south-west Queensland. I’ve worked for many years in Aboriginal education and was a founder of the Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning. I now work in prisoner rehabilitation and I am a member of the Australian Services Union.

I’ve joined this election campaign to build a people’s movement to free all our communities from the tyranny of the old big parties which have been bought out by the rich and the multinational corporations. Our future is grim if the big corporations and their parties continue to rule the world. Lots of people are beginning to realise this — just look at the Bernie Sanders campaign in the US. People have had enough of corporate greed and the endless war, oppression and environmental destruction this has been inflicted on the world.

We need real change, and we need it real soon.
