Hear the Communist League candidates
Campaign and vote for a working class answer to the capitalist parties in the 2017 elections

Millions of working people worldwide and in New Zealand are feeling the effects of decades of grinding economic depression conditions. They are angry and fed up with the parties in parliament that represent and act in the interests of the ruling capitalist families and super-wealthy elite.

The Communist League is standing Felicity Coggan, a factory worker, and Michael Tucker, a labourer, to offer a working class answer to the capitalist parties in the 2017 election for parliament. The League’s programme looks to strengthen workers’ capacity to organise through trade unions to fight for our rights and to unite with others into a social force capable of ending the dictatorship of capital over us.

We need to fight for a workers and farmers government that can reorganise society on the basis of human solidarity and needs, not what is profitable for a few.
Come to a meeting to hear and support the Communist League candidates.

Felicity Coggan
Communist League candidate for Mangere

Michael Tucker
Communist League candidate for Maungakiekie

7pm, Friday, July 28
188a Onehunga Mall Rd, Auckland
