Election 2017: Why Vote, and Why Vote Left?

Here is my take on Election 2017 ( The argument is vote left, with a party vote for the Green Party and a tactical electorate vote for either Labour or the Greens.
But if you do so, then please appreciate that a Labour-led government will not break with neoliberalism and will continue to manage the capitalist system that causes major problems such as unemployment, inequality, poverty, racism, sexism, and rising carbon emissions.
Also appreciate that what really matters is what is happening outside of parliament. That's where we need the strikes, campaigns and protests that are absolutely necessary to advance the interests of workers, students, women, Maori and Pasifika in areas such as pay and conditions, poverty, welfare, health, housing, education and environmental policy.
