The Socialist Alliance has chosen four activist candidates to take its message to Perth’s southern suburbs in the WA state election on 11 March.

All candidates are actively involved in the campaign to stop the environmentally and socially destructive Roe 8, but they are also passionate about range of other issues, and united in their passion to create a society that puts people and the planet ahead of the big corporations.
