Featuring the latest news in activist campaigns and struggles against oppression fighting for a better world with anti-capitalist analysis on current affairs and international politics. 

For our special program this week we explored the different political ramifications and social impacts of #COVID19 with various guests on our program covering perspectives that won't be found in the corporate press. 

Interviews

A discussion with Socialist Alliance national co-convenor Alex Bainbridge about the political ramifications of #COVID19 and how the crisis reveals that governments around the world don't care about the interests of ordinary people and we need to be putting forward measures that put people before the profits of corporations.
