Australian politics is in a dire state. The Labor and Liberal parties offer nothing but racism and cuts to social services, while the Greens are more focused on appearing respectable than offering an alternative. Globally people like Trump are gaining a substantial following, while here in Australia Hanson and Bernardi continue to push the limits of bigotry and hate. This session will put forward the socialist alternative to all of that, and is guaranteed to leave you inspired to fight for a better world.
