The weekend prior to election day Sunday May 15th Victorian Socialists will be out doorknocking in the electorate of Melbourne.
Help us take our message of putting people before profits to thousands of residents in Abbotsford and surrounding suburbs.
We'll also be promoting our fabulous candidates for the area. Running for the seat of Melbourne, Colleen Bolger is a strident advocate for workers and the oppressed. In 2002 she was part of the Woomera detention center protests that saw activists and refugees tear down fences, freeing detainees. And our Senate candidate is Aran Mylvaganam, a former refugee and lifelong anti-racism campaigner and trade union organiser, and founder of the Tamil Refugee Council.
New volunteers are welcome! This is an all-in Victorian Socialists campaign event, so we encourage volunteers and supporters from across the state to join us, no matter which electorate you live in.

*Register for the event here to be emailed a map, instructions and team mates for your doorknocking
