"The Socialist Equality Party insists that the only realistic solution to climate change is the abolition of the profit system and the destructive division of the globe into rival nation-states."
- Patrick O'Connor, SEP candidate for Marrickville (source: World Socialist Web Site)
The Socialist Equality Party (not officially a political party for the purposes of the coming state election) is the group whose election platform includes such New South Wales issues as withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.
The SEP, which is the Australian wing of the Trotskyite Fourth International, is fielding two candidates for the Legislative Council, and three in the Legislative Assembly - in Marrickville, Heffron and Newcastle. This is the political party that calls the Socialist Alliance "middle-class". Make of that what you will.
