The Socialist Alliance <http://www.socialist-alliance.org/> released this
statement on May 23.


Ford's announcement that it will close its last vehicle manufacturing
plants in Australia — in Geelong and Broadmeadows — destroying the jobs of
1200 is "totally despicable", said Sue Bull, the Socialist Alliance
candidate for Corio, "especially as this giant multinational has collected
huge public subsidies year after year supposedly to save jobs".

"The Australian people has been played for suckers," said Bull, a long-time
Geelong-resident, socialist and trade union activist who won 10,000 votes
when she ran for Geelong Mayor last year.

original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made,
through disobedience and through rebellion.” — Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man
Under Socialism

“The free market is perfectly natural... do you think I am some kind of
dummy?” — Jarvis Cocker
