Socialist Alliance

logo-socialist-allianceBring the mining, banking and energy industries under public ownership and control, so that they can be run in a way that respects Aboriginal rights, the environment and social justice.

The urgent need to address climate change alone demands that these industries be taken out of the hands of the billionaires, and their global corporations, and operated as not-for-profit public services under the democratic control of the majority.

We cannot afford to leave our future to the likes of Gina Rinehart, Clive Palmer and the faceless bankers.

The mining industry needs to be publicly owned not just to redistribute the huge profits being made from exploiting finite resources, but also to stop uranium mining and to phase out coal and other fossil fuels, while creating new jobs in radically boosted renewable energy, public transport and other social infrastructure.

The banks can be run as a not-for-profit public service providing cheap credit to families, community groups and small businesses and a safe and ethical way for people to invest their savings.

Our collective savings can be used to fund the public infrastructure we need for a just and sustainable future instead of being gambled on irresponsible corporate schemes.
