May Day Sydney 2008

The May Day rally for 2008 in Sydney was a protest outside the NSW Labor party conference which was set to reject Labor Premier Iemma's plan to privatise the electricity.

Delegates at the New South Wales Labor Party Conference in Sydney overwhelmingly rejected a State Government proposal to privatise the electricity sector.

Premier Morris Iemma wants to sell electricity retailers and lease power generators, but an amendment to Labor Party policy moved at the conference which rejected privatisation was supported.

The final vote was 702 against electricity privatisation and 107 for it. The vote came after a lengthy debate where speakers, including union officials and Government ministers, outlined their positions on the proposed power sector reforms. Source
