SYN Nation

The Socialist Alternative, Thailand and the European Elections


Claudia Long hosts this week’s episode of Represent, speaking to Ruby Healer from the Socialist Alternative to find out what they’re all about and why they protest the way they do. We also cross live to Thailand, speaking to ex-SYNner Robert Baird in Chang Mai about the military coup.

We also try to find a positive side to the budget and look at the European elections and an unusual plan to try and curb domestic violence in Victoria.

If you want to hear Represent live, tune in to SYN Nation every Saturday at 3pm
