It's generally accepted that Labor will be wiped out in the March 26 NSW election, but what are the Liberals planning? One recent poll said that 87% of people planning to vote Liberal wanted to know what they actually stand for. The Liberals have said very little about their plans, but the people of NSW deserve to know.
Come along to this important meeting to find out and discuss some of these plans. More importantly come along to discuss the urgent question of building a real, pro-people alternative to both the Labor and Liberal parties.
