Pat O’Shane told a packed-out International Women’s Day celebration in Cairns on March 8 about her lifetime of defiance against racism and authorities.

The Socialist Alliance candidate for Leichhardt said she had been a beneficiary of free healthcare and free education, and that these needed to be restored. Performers Emily Hapea and Faux Mo helped make the rebellious event a big success.
