Celeste Liddle

Federal Candidate for Cooper

Hi, I'm Celeste

I am an Arrernte woman, unionist, feminist and writer, and I’m ready to fight for our future.

I’ve lived in this area for over two decades. Preston market is my local and I’m a big supporter of our live music scene. Our community is diverse and creative, and has one of the highest proportions of Indigenous people in Victoria. We need a representative from a truly progressive party that’s powered by people instead of big corporate donors. 

As a union organiser, I’ve seen first-hand the power of collective action. With a small change in the vote, we can hold the balance of power. We can tax billionaires to fund a massive increase in renewable energy and get dental into Medicare. Treaties and proper recognition of Indigenous sovereignty, as well as robust rights for workers are all possible

Together we can act where the major parties won’t.
