Mike Crook is the Socialist Alliance candidate for Sandgate at the upcoming Queensland state election on March 21st.
You can read more about the campaign here on the Socialist Alliance website.
A member of the ALP for 20 years, Mike recently joined the Socialist Alliance, having become increasingly disenchanted with the ALP's anti-worker, pro-corporate agenda.
Mike recently participated in a brigade to Venezuela, and seeing participatory, grassroots democracy, was convinced that the future lies in mobilizing people for socialist change.
Mike has been a steering committee member and activist on the Your Rights At Work campaign committee which was instrumental in kicking out the Howard government, and has campaigned tirelessly for industrial rights and shorter working hours.
