Put Passion back into Local Politics
Dr. Joseph Toscano is the Melbourne Anarchist running for Mayor. Dr. Toscano is a medical practitioner, an anarchist, a long time broadcaster on community radio station 3CR and the man behind the longest running anarchist weekly publication in Australia (almost two decades) Anarchist Age Weekly Review, who lives in Melbourne, Australia.
During Melbourne Council Elections in late 2008, Dr. Joseph Toscano ran for Mayor along with Melbourne Radical Activist Dr. Margaret Ely as his running mate on the Melbourne Mayoral Ticket. Between them they have over eighty years experience combating the state, corporate capitalism and bureaucracy. You can read more about their radical platform on their website (see the links bellow) but to summarise it in their own words:
"We want to shift the burden from Melbourne’s residents, small businesses and the dispossessed onto the sholders of Corporate Melbourne."
