Elections Aug 21: Battlestations!

Julia Gillard has called the election for Saturday August 21!

Our election campaign is already underway, but now is the time to shift into a new gear.

There are three things that we need now from our supporters:

1. A commitment to help our election campaign on polling day, especially in the electorates of Perth or Fremantle.

2. All donations large and small are welcome and still necessary (thanks to those who have already contributed).

3. Help with letter boxing and general campaign help.

Please contact Alex on 9218 9608 or 0413 976 638 if you can help in any of these ways.

Also remember to make sure you are on the electoral roll at your correct address. You have until 8pm Monday 19 July (tomorrow) to enroll to vote if you're not on the roll, and until Wednesday to change details like your address. Capital city AEC offices are open today.

Finally, it is worth remembering that our general campaigning does not stop just because an election has been called. Other important upcoming events include the rally for Adelaide construction worker Ark Tribe on Tuesday 20 July and the benefit gig for Green Left Weekly and Friends of Palestine with inspirational US songwriter David Rovics on Sunday 25 July.

In solidarity
