Alex Bainbridge speaking at GetUp candidates forum

Introduction by Alex Bainbridge at GetUp "Party On - 2014 WA senate by-election smaller party candidates forum".

The forum was attended by around 100 people in the Perth Town Hall.

"You'd be hard pressed to find anybody that doesn't have some problem or another with contemporary capitalist society," said Bainbridge. These problems are not accidental he explained but are caused by the corruption of the electoral process by corporate money.

The Socialist Alliance believes that the power of the big corporations has to be broken and that the first step is to bring the monopolised mines and banks into democratic public ownership.
