Socialist Alliance Stands for Socialism
Socialist Alliance stands for a democratic society run by and for working people, not the greedy, destructive capitalist elite that now rules. There catch-cry is “We put people and the planet before profit, the millions before the billionaires”.
Since 2001, members of Socialist Alliance have been active in campaigns for workers’ rights, for women’s rights, against unconventional gas mining and for environmental protection and justice, for civil liberties, justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, for refugees and against racism, for the rights of gays, lesbians, trans and intersex people, for equal marriage rights, and for international solidarity with the oppressed. Socialist Alliance members are recognised leaders in many of these movements.
Socialist Alliance Members
Socialist Alliance is made up of people who, like millions of others, are sick of being ruled by the warmongers, racists, union-bashers, and capitalist politicians.
Engaging in a combination of grassroots activism and electoral politics, Socialist Alliance currently has four elected officeholders across Australia, all of whom serve on the local government level.
They are councillors Sarah Hathway (City of Greater Geelong), Rob Pyne (Cairns Region) and Sue Bolton and Monica Harte (both serving in the City of Merri-bek). Sam Wainwright served as a Socialist Alliance councillor on the City of Fremantle until 2021.
