Our Common Cause

Our Common Cause is the column of Socialist Alliance in Green Left which is widely recognised as one of the most authoritative left-wing English-language sources of news and political analysis in print and online. Green Left covers many of the issues and campaigns that Socialist Alliance members are involved in.

Members and supporters are encouraged to promote Green Left while campaigning in their communities and workplaces and to become financial supporters of Green Left to ensure its ongoing production and distribution.

A team of progressive activists has formed an independent “Housing Action” ticket to run in the September 8 council elections in the City of Sydney.

The united platform “Decent housing is a human right” is a further step towards practical unity between independent socialists and members of the Communist Party of Australia (CPA) and the Socialist Allliance (SA).

The team has come together to challenge City of Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore's pro-corporate development stance. It is also championing public housing and human rights over pro-development and big business.
