The Socialist Equality Party’s candidates for the 2016 Australian federal elections will be addressing public meetings over the coming weeks in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. The SEP is fielding slates of Senate candidates in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria, and contesting the lower house seats of Grayndler and Blaxland in Sydney and Wills in Melbourne.
At the meetings, the candidates will explain the socialist and internationalist program that the SEP is fighting for, in opposition to Labor, the Liberals, the Greens and every other capitalist party.
They will outline the immense dangers of war, particularly in the Asia-Pacific, and expose Australia’s integration into the advanced preparations for a US-led conflict with China. The SEP’s election campaign, which is being carried out in the closest collaboration with the sections of the world Trotskyist movement, is aimed at building an anti-war movement of the working class throughout Asia and internationally to prevent the catastrophe of a new world war.
The meetings will elaborate the socialist alternative to the assault on social rights, including education, healthcare and jobs—which will be intensified by whichever parties form government—and to the erosion of fundamental democratic rights. We appeal to all workers, young people and students seeking to fight war, austerity and the preparations for dictatorship to attend our meetings and bring your friends and family.
