2019 NSW State Election

Community need not corporate greed

NSW urgently needs a radical shift in priorities, for social justice and environmental sustainability.

We are standing for the NSW Legislative Council and in some lower house seats to give voice to the people and not the profiteers. We believe that building community campaigns and running for office should complement each other.

But don’t just vote for us, find out more and get involved in creating a better world.
