Ken Canning speaks about a people's movement

First Nations Socialist Alliance Senate candidate for NSW Ken Canning.

First Nations Socialist Alliance Senate candidate for NSW Ken Canning visited the Bankstown campus of Western Sydney University on May 9 to inform students about why we need a people's movement. The meeting was organised by the Resistance Club.

He raised several key issues including the fact that despite former Labor PM Kevin Rudd's “Sorry” speech Indigenous children are still being forcefully removed at a higher rate than ever before.

He talked about the idea for a Treaty with First Nations peoples and said Constitutional recognition was a sham. He slammed the Coalition government's hypocrisy of turning a blind eye to 468 multinational companies which avoid paying tax while wanting to deregulate tertiary education and cut Medicare.
