A Message to Current and Former One Nation Members:

This statement is intended as a positive, constructive message to the One Nation party, addressed in good faith to all members of One Nation -- and particularly to those members who still want to make a difference and who are now, or soon will be, considering their options.

It is not in any way an attack on One Nation or the many good people who joined that party for a variety of worthy reasons.

Nor is it an exercise in "triumphalism".

Rather it is an earnest attempt to get to grips with a simple matter of fact –that the One Nation Party is now in terminal decline– and to ask, constructively, the obvious question: what options are now available to members of One Nation who still wish to be active, to be part of a change for the better, to confront and overcome the corrupt globalist system that we all, on the nationalist side of politics, must and do oppose?

The options are, as we hope you will see it :
1) attempt to resurrect One Nation
2) give up and admit defeat

3) do something else.

It is option one that brings us straight to the crux of the matter.

One Nation was a lightning rod for an angry, disillusioned and mobilised population. But those days of early triumph and the One Nation juggernaut have long since gone.

One Nation's current leadership has allowed the party to drift away from its original purpose to expose and attack the various forces at work in the sell-off and sell-out of traditional Australia. Under the specific direction of certain individuals, there has in particular been a complete retreat from one of the core complaints that defined the early One Nation party: namely, the Asianisation of Australia. One Nation once clearly opposed this attack on our national identity. It is now equally clear that this is not longer the case.

Pauline Hanson has vanished from Australia's political scene. There is no indication that she will ever be back. Nor has any individual emerged with her qualities who might plausibly revive the populism that underpinned the One Nation phenomenon.

As things stand, One Nation is facing an imminent crisis. The party likely faces Federal de-registration very soon. Some State branches are in sufficiently good shape to withstand similar moves in their own State electoral systems for perhaps some time to come, but the process nevertheless is very much a one-way ride to nowhere.

All in all, the picture would seem grim if we were to suppose that the continued survival of the One Nation party structure and its "brand" were somehow essential to the work that One Nation and its members set out to do.

Fortunately this is not the case.

That said, if One Nation as an entity cannot survive, what are its members to do?

The second option is to do nothing: give up and retire from active work.

While we do not support this option, we note it because the human spirit has its limits and --sadly-- a great many people have been, and will continue to be, burnt out by the long slumber and slow destruction of One Nation. Further, we mention this option because, if a suitable opportunity for real activism is not made apparent to One Nation members and soon, many more may take this path.

So we must look to the third option: find some other way to "fight the fight". Here there is a choice to be made.

There is the Katter party, of course. We have concerns about the Katter party, in particular its insistence on increasing our population no matter what the cost. We quote from their website: "Australia needs to increase its population to achieve acceptable levels of economic, scientific, strategic and personal development. Government must develop immigration and birth rate policies consistent with these principles. In addition, the population growth needs to be distributed widely throughout Australia and especially into northern Australia." Reference: Point 21 of the Australian Party's Values and Principles -- see

The implications of this policy are clear: mass immigration into Australia's north.

Nevertheless we acknowledge that some One Nation people will get on board with Bob Katter on the grounds that he is (they will say) a patriot, a populist and a strong new force in the political scene. We will see what transpires, but note that the Katter phenomenon looks very much like a new variation on the Hanson phenomenon. Yes, there are points of difference, but overall we see a similar strategy, with electoral work being the only focus of the organisation, as well as similar structures -- the "strong" leadership figure and a support base of disillusioned people, but once again no attempt to unite the party around a single, consistent view of the national question.

If the Katter group turns into another One Nation, the danger is that yet again many good people will be first directed into what we feel to be futile vote-chasing efforts, probably for a number of years, and then, when it is all over, a large number of those people will leave yet another organisation disillusioned, worn out and ready to quit the fight for good.

There has to be a better option.

It is the view of Australia First that this better option is to break free from the obsession with vote-chasing and adopt a broader strategy in which electoral work is combined with -- and at times very much subordinate to -- community campaigns and educational work of all sorts.

We have outlined this strategy before:
"The Australia First Party is an incorporation registered as a Federal party. That does not mean that its function is only to contest elections. The party operates to the ‘three tier method’. This means that the party contests elections, wages community campaigns of all sorts to build links with fellow Australians and to unite all Australians - and develops its ideas and principles into an Australianist ideology that also carries on a cultural defence of Australianity against globalisation. The three tiers operate as a unity." ( )

We suggest to One Nation members that this kind of approach is the one to which they too should turn their attention and efforts. We make this recommendation to all activists and would-be activists, regardless whether they remain for a time within what is left of the One Nation structure, leave the party and operate on their own for a time, join the Katter party, or eventually come over to Australia First, by whatever circuitous route they may take. We are not out to exclude or vilify good people. We do however point out that this three-tier approach to activism was largely absent in One Nation, despite the best efforts of some members to change this fact. One Nation, as a whole, sought only to engage with ordinary Australians as "ballot-box fodder". We hope the Katter party will be different, but fear that it too is caught up in the hypnotic dance of the electoral cycle and will likely remain so until its eventual demise.

Only in the Australia First party is such a broad and dynamic strategy front and centre, supported and nurtured by the organisation at every level. Therefore we say to One Nation members: consider your situation. You are a great asset to our nation's cause, if only you will keep up the fight. We have suggested the only option we believe will allow you to do so. When you are ready, we will welcome you.

Open ‘Mining Boom’ Conspiracy Against The Australian People: WA Chamber Of Commerce Seeks 500,000 Workers: Time For Counter-Action

Dr. Jim Saleam and Brendan Gidley

It is no secret that the WA Chamber of Commerce has been on the increase-the-population mantra for a long time. On April 11, a spokesman revived the old tale that 500,000 additional workers (and their families) should enter the State over the next two decades.

That would double the State’s population.

At one point, Paul Howes of the Australian Workers’ Union, seriously suggested a new city in the Kimberleys. Almost certainly, he had his eye on the burgeoning population of East Timor. Is the border to be cracked open one day with hordes descending on ‘Howesville’ and crossing freely between Timor and Australia?

The Committee For The Economic Development Of Australia (CEDA), the powerful linking-body of Australia’s corporate elite and the politicians, said recently:

“With over $210 billion in business investment slated for Western Australian projects, the forecasts are for this economic growth to continue. Much of this economic prosperity is being driven by business investment in the regions of WA. The State’s excellent economic prospects have induced record levels of people to migrate to WA and resulted in one of its fastest periods of population growth in recent decades.”

Despite the population growth, the corporate elites suggest that WA is likely to experience highly constrained labour markets in the near future. The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Western Australia has forecast that WA’s economy has the potential to produce almost 500,000 new jobs by 2020 and, despite the high level of population growth (immigration based!), there is likely to be a shortfall of 210,000 workers.

Western Australia has a unique settlement pattern in that the vast majority of the population is centred in Perth Indeed, Perth now houses 74 per cent of the State’s population, a figure that has grown from around 36 per cent of the State’s total population at the turn of last century. The concentration of the population in Perth is placing significant pressures on existing infrastructure while also causing making it difficult for regional economies to grow. And Perth is cracking.

CEDA said and Australia First notes:

“The sustainability of population growth was a key issue of the 2010 Federal Election for both major parties. Unless the State Government can encourage greater distribution in the population it may face growing community disquiet about high levels of migration.”

Indeed, the problem may get worse for Aussie workers. The government cannot manage this ‘redistribution’ and alien ghettos and intrusions are everywhere. The collapse of unionised labour places these aliens in the forefront of employment. Tensions run high in Perth suburbs. Australian workers are beginning to grumble.

The South China News reported last year:

“The Australian government has come up with a novel way to meet its growing shortage of skilled workers – train tens of thousands of Indian students. It is understood that talks between the Australian and Indian governments are well advanced.”

The Australian Financial Review (AFR) said in 2011 that Australian and Indian officials have begun talks with tertiary institutions and resources companies in both nations about opening up Australia’s training system.

“This could involve educating as many as 100,000 Indians, mostly in Indian universities by Australian trainers, with up to 30,000 then recruited to work in Australia,” the AFR said

The Federal government has also indicated that it wants to open an Australian Mining University in India, with campuses in several cities.

The displacement of Australians by aliens is now accepted state-policy and is justified by the model of perpetual boom. Of course, eventually, the resources run out.

But there is no thought of finite resources. Australian industry has claimed it faces a massive skills shortage as the country’s mining boom expands, driven by strong Asian, and particularly Chinese, A report by Skills Australia, which advises the government on workforce requirements, last week estimated the country will need 2.4 million more skilled workers within four years, many of them in the mining sector. It is here that the open conspiracy to destroy the Australian identity and sovereignty is nakedly open. Money men say what they mean.

“The solution to Australia’s labor problems lies overseas,” Christopher Joye, chief executive of Rismark International, a financial advice company, says.

“We’re an immigrant nation. A quarter of all Australians were born overseas. Forty percent of us have a parent born overseas. Given that we are such a high-growth country with very high potential we should continue to import the labour we require to support the economy,” Joye said.

The head of the Western Australian Chamber of Commerce (WACC), James Pearson, says the State needs an extra 500,000 workers over the next 10 years just to keep pace with demand.

He said that there was a time early last century when it was often said Australia rode on a sheep’s back. Today, it rides on a massive dump truck. Of course, he means those who own the corporations depend on mining for their super-profits.

As the economy of the Chinese superpower expands so too does its appetite for resources much the same way Japan grew in the 1960s. Japan also looked south for its supplies of iron ore and coking coal. Today, the Chinese imperialists are straddling the globe.

Economists have argued that unless the Australian government increases its skilled workforce to meet the overseas demand for resources, importing countries may start to look elsewhere. Who cares? Are we in a race to sell off what we have for future generations? Obviously so!

The government engendered “shortage of skills” is also having an impact on the domestic labour market as well.

Deloitte Access Economics, an advisory group, estimates the value of Australian investment projects either under way or in planning has reached A$777 billion ($838 billion).

The biggest single resource project is the A$43 billion Chevron-operated Gorgon liquefied natural gas project.

BHP, Rio Tinto and Fortescue Metals Group, Australia’s top three iron ore exporters, are also spending tens of billions of dollars developing their mine, rail and port operations in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, while at least A$50 billion has been earmarked for LNG projects in Queensland.

The government of Western Australia said recently the State could face a shortage of 150,000 skilled workers by 2017, while the Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia has warned that an additional 34,000 workers are needed in the next 20 months for iron ore and LNG projects in the Pilbara region. We know exactly what it wants.

Here lies opportunity – to link the political struggle against the population push with the needs of Australian workers.

Australia First rejects the false boom driven by the multinationals and the Chinese and other imperialists. Australian resources belong to the whole Australian people – for the future of our land and people. Reducing Australia to a mining hole in 50 years to serve the global economy is insanity.

Australia First in Western Australia will look to developing its organization to serve our people in a great struggle to save our national wealth and to preserve the sustainability of our land by the restriction of population growth. These related issues flow into the greatest fight Australia will ever face – the fight for Australian independence.

‘Go Back Where You Came From’: SBS Propaganda: Is It Also A Hoax – And An Opportunity? (Bill Rezac)

SBS screens this week a three part series ‘Go Back Where You Came From’, a documentary which shows a group of Australians being confronted (sic) with the living conditions of so-called ‘refugees’ in the camps of Asia and Africa and with their difficult journeys (sic) to come to Australia.

The program is pure propaganda.

Originally, Australia First members Jim Saleam and Perry Jewell, were also approached to participate. As could reasonably be expected, the tentative invitations to these nationalists were not pursued. At all points, the true purpose of the producers was to choose persons who were likely to be ‘remoulded’ by a type of hands-on live-drama re-education.

So it was.

At no time does this program really explain that refugees (sic) are often people who have declined to take up arms against their alleged oppressors, that the conditions they may find themselves in are in one sense of their own making, what economic refugees may be as opposed to political dissenters, that many consider permanent flight of better value than a fighting return, that many have social practises repugnant to Australian society, that many of these people may also hate and be envious of those who possess wealth and territory – and that overpopulation and New World Order wars and other ethnic based strife are the chief underlying causes of many outpourings from the Third World.

We are witness then to an attempt to brainwash Australians to accept that they are guilty people if they lack compassion.

In fact, for most Australians other than the liberal minded, there is a feeling that this brainwash should be resisted but they don’t know how.

The Case Of Raye Colbey

The star of the show, Raye Colbey, is described as a lady from Inverbrackie in South Australia where a refugee detention centre has been founded. Mrs. Colbey goes on the SBS organized jaunt overseas and learns about her ‘hate’, learns of compassion and so forth.

Reports passed to Australia First in South Australia, suggest that Mrs. Colbey has family members involved in support campaigns for so-called refugees.

Mrs Colbey has been a victim, if she really is a victim, of psychological manipulation. We note how quickly the usual media suspects have been to publish a public recant from her of her ‘former’, t=racist (sic) views.

Schools Will Get The SBS Doco But ‘The Camp Of The Saints’ Will Be There In Reply

A report was given to Australia First in New South Wales that the program will be shown on DVD to high school students as part of a propaganda offensive to soften students’ attitudes to the refugee invasion. This offers an opportunity for the new Eureka Youth League and Australia First Party to fight back.

Both organisations will surely seek to make mass awareness of the antidote: The Camp Of The Saints, the 1972 novel which explained the psychosis the dominant groups of our Western societies faced with a refugee invasion of European lands – a work composed before there were any mass refugee outpourings from the Third World. This revolutionary novel posited that overpopulation and poverty, war and envy, would propel masses towards the vision of a better life. It then pilloried the false-moralities that would justify to certain Westerners the very destruction of their own societies.

For the curious:

This book should be studied by all Australians who need a counter-morality to the SBS type propaganda about to invade our screens.

Intensify The Struggle: ‘Expel The Refugees’

Australians need to act against the army of churchmen, Greens, Trotskyites, lawyer-advocates and others who play morality games over the refugee invasion and who mobilize daily to beat down Australians.

The morality is on the side of the Australian people, who under the challenge of mass immigration and now refugee invasion, have opted to resist.

Our party will repudiate the United Nations Convention On Refugees (1951). Ultimately, we will expel the refugees! But we make this very, very, dark promise: the traitors who have decided to give away our birthright will pay for the assisted return, if necessary of hundreds of thousands of persons to countries of origin – by the public seizure of their assets.

It has come to this.

Warn your friends and children against the latest SBS propaganda.

Australia First (Western Australia) Meets On June 25: Dr. Jim Saleam To Speak

Bill Rezac

The nationalist movement in Western Australia is set to grow throughout 2011, with a view to acquiring the beginnings of a real activist presence in universities, schools, workplaces and community groups. Australia First Party is not simply an electoral organisation, but a political movement of thought and action.

This broad theme will be addressed by party National Council member, Dr. Jim Saleam, at a meeting in Perth set for June 25.

Members of the party, Eureka Youth League contacts and other interested persons have all been invited.

The Australia First Party is growing across Australia. Recruitment is now under way to acquire the necessary membership to register the party in South Australia and Queensland. Western Australian nationalists admit to not being advanced towards a similar goal, but we have a firm commitment to building the party on strong foundations.

The Australia First Party intends to take a leading role in warning people in this State of a number of dire dangers: the Chinese mining corporations which operate here and which seek Chinese slave labour as their workforces, the shadowy plans to break open the borders with East Timor and the denial of freedom of speech through certain State laws.

Our meeting on June 25 promises to set our agenda. Join Australia First!

Palerang Election Campaign: John McGrath For Australia First Polls A Solid 6.1%

Australia First Party candidate for Palerang Council, John McGrath, has won a solid 6.1% - 430 votes - in the by-election held yesterday (these figures are not yet final)

Once again, we have shown that there is a definite community and electoral clientele for our party. In the 2008 NSW local government poll, Australia First won 4% in the Sutherland Shire and some 5.67% in Blacktown City. In a Sutherland Shire by-election in October last year we crossed over the 4% line again. In June 2010, in the Hawkesbury City by-election, we won 9.4%.

If a full Council election had been held in Palerang yesterday, John McGrath may have picked up the last position; indeed, some of our polling booth workers conversed with the current Mayor, who himself picked up the last seat in Palerang in 2008 - with just over 3 % of the vote!

Mr. McGrath has signalled his willingness to contest Palerang in 2012, along side of Australia First Party candidates set to contest (and win!) - in a swathe of councils across the State.

Farmers, Truckies, Young Workers Targets Of The Campaign

The Australia First Party campaign followed the political line of the party. It set out to target specific social sectors which we call Real Australia, or those parts of our community who have, in one way or another, stepped outside of the globalising norms of the present anti Australian economic and political system either to vote for something new or wage their economic struggles: some farmers challenged by the Murray Darling Basic Authority water legislation and who have opted to resist outside of the usual sell-out farmers organisations and the National Party; truck owner-drivers who are pushed to the wall by bureaucracy at the service of the big companies, citizens who have rejected the big parties and the Greens on immigration and young workers under the gun of contract labour and who see no party willing to say no. In ways specific to local conditions, these groups were the ‘targets’ of the McGrath campaign

Importantly too, Australia First publicly campaigned for People’s Referendum or Citizens’ Initiated Referendum where it is the people who may propose directly local rules and ‘laws’. This resonated in chaotic Palerang.

There is another aspect of the Real Australia strategy. Because the party targets Real Australia for support, Australia First leaves the ‘mainstream’ people behind at this stage: sadly, the majority of our fellow Australians accept their lot and relish its rewards and comforts; they may grumble at this or that, but are psychically bound to a ‘comfort zone’ of political normality and so consequently support the candidates and parties that actually undermine them too. This truth is the truth and it is not changed by wishful thinking. These folks are not the agents of change at this point in time. Essentially, our strategy is the logical one: build where we can, with whom we must, at this crucial phase of party and community network construction. That same big-picture logic plays out at local level politics also.

John McGrath’s thirty five years of political experience, served him well in doing what needed to be done at a local level and he was witness to how all these sobering strategic facts work themselves out.

Hard Work Yields Results

John McGrath campaigned very hard in Palerang. John spoke at the three community meetings and was received well and his candidature and the party name were mentioned at length in the Bungendore Mirror, the Braidwood Times and community newsletters. The Queanbeyan Age (which covers a part of the council area) referred to him as “arguably the most controversial candidate”. Indeed, the latter paper reported on a growing community angst across Palerang at the “plan” to explode the Shire’s population by nearly 70% by 2036 – and noted what our candidate was saying. Had we tapped a growing consciousness? We think so.

The party mobilised some Australia First members in Canberra and in Palerang Shire to assist on polling day with how to vote cards. Most booths were covered. Ironically, in the only booth where we have no worker (the isolated area of Nerriga), we polled 20%. These same members earlier letterboxed streets and spoke with residents and gave the party ‘name-recognition’. John campaigned personally in Captain’s Flat, Burra and Bungendore, meeting local residents and soliciting votes.

A Statement Of Position

Despite the candidates against John McGrath all running as ‘independents’, there were party allegiances in the poll. One candidate had Labor Party connections and another is active in the National Party, whilst yet another had some Green input to his support-base. What is equally clear is that a layer of voters in Palerang have also made a statement of position in voting for Australia First.

This statement is an ideological statement of Real Australia. It is a rock base of support that will be expanded, but only by the party being involved directly in community politics, if the party markets itself as a protest and defence organisation for issues that affect the lives of people.

Underground name recognition helps Australia First. As the polling booth workers attest, our party has a name that travels by pubs, clubs, workplaces, cafeterias, truck-stops, from brothers to sisters and mothers to fathers. The thousands of people across different States who have voted for Australia First in the last three years carry the name of the party to other Australians and the same process has now commenced in Palerang Shire.

Australia First Party thanks all who assisted in any way on this campaign and we look forward to further electoral successes in New South Wales.

For A Patriotic United Front

The following statement was approved by the management committee of the party on January10 2011. It is now published.

The Australia First Party recognises the dependent nature of the Australian state upon the forces of globalism. Australia is a client state, ruled by a traitor class which is integrated into a transnational network of globalist elites and their economic and political structures. This class would govern Australia as a resources quarry cowed by thought-policing and a secret political police. Australia is further menaced by a new Chinese imperialism that competes with the American face of the New World Order for domination over Asia and the Pacific, with Australia a pawn in the game. The unfolding population / food crisis coupled with New World Order wars launches refugee hordes at Australia’s borders, whilst the traitor class sponsors a mass immigration recolonization of Australia for the purposes of economic enmeshment with the ‘global economy’. In the world crisis of the first quarter of the twenty-first century, Australia lacks status as an independent country. Indeed, Australia may disappear by century’s end as a country - and suffer partition by other states.

To rescue our country and our people means removing Australia to a position outside of the chaos of globalism. That means the creation of an independent Australia. To win an independent Australia where political power can be exercised directly by the people, where wealth comes to all who labour and where arms and the initiation and the enforcement of the laws are in the hands of the people, a new force outside of the old parties and their worn-out ideologies and prejudices - has become necessary. This new nationalist movement must now fight and win the struggle for Australia’s national independence.

It is ultimately necessary to unite all who can be united against the traitor class into a broad patriotic front to achieve Australian national independence. All those parties, groups and trade and community associations which contest the ideology, the politics, the economics and the cultural expressions of globalism, can find common ground against the foreign control and exploitation of Australia. Their uniting thread is the cause of Australian national independence.

The patriotic united front should not be a matter for tomorrow, but a matter of immediacy. United fronts operate in two ways: we predict the ultimate formation of a mass united front in times future, one that will win Australian national independence at a moment when parties and groups, economic and social and cultural associations all bond together in intense struggle. For today, we must build for that future in struggles on a daily basis around all manner of issues; we must wage community campaigns apposite to each Australian group and build unity on the ground. It is mandatory to seek this unity.

The Australia First Party is an incorporation registered as a Federal party. That does not mean that its function is only to contest elections. The party operates to the ‘three tier method’. This means that the party contests elections, wages community campaigns of all sorts to build links with fellow Australians and to unite all Australians - and develops its ideas and principles into an Australianist ideology that also carries on a cultural defence of Australianity against globalisation. The three tiers operate as a unity.

In one sense, the party reaches out to groups of a patriotic nature which may operate to one or another of the three tiers as their individual method. The party seeks to build relationships with such parties and groups and to unite whenever necessary to defend common interests and win common victories. New patriotic groups form either as political, trade, or cultural groups. As Australia descends into chaos, that process is organic.

Australia First Party within the broad Australian patriotic movement seeks to be a vanguard movement. This means that the party struggles to affirm the power of the ideals of Australian identity, independence and freedom, to carry those ideals everywhere, to defend them and preach them with zeal as a veritable Australianism and to inspire all others to tread the path towards the overweening fight for Australian national independence.

The party states clearly how it would prefer its dealings with other patriotic political organisations to be conducted and what relationships should be developed.

The Australia First Party recognises that different parties and groups exist for several reasons. These reasons can include: geographic circumstance, particular historical factors, previous organisational histories, the inter-relationships of people and sometimes - internecine struggles that are to be regretted, but which are human nature.

The Australia First Party declares that it will treat the other political organisations within a patriotic united front in this way:

1. Negotiate with any would-be candidate to avoid electoral competition.

2. Assist, when requested, other parties etc. in an electorate or council area where Australia First Party has no candidate.

3. Develop united activist campaigns on public issues or on other fronts, with any party or group - and do this in a consultative and cooperative spirit.

4. Exchange intelligence on disruptive elements, or state or other programs which undermine the integrity of the patriotic movement.

5. Avoid all unnecessary, unreasonable comment on other parties and groups; but point out fairly and reasonably, what any differences may be, whenever appropriate.

The party states clearly how it would prefer its dealings with other patriotic community organisations to be conducted and what relationships should be developed.

The Australia First Party recognises that different community associations arise for different reasons. Some defend the interests of the Australian productive classes - workers, farmers, small-business or other patriotic working people. Some advance the defence of Australian heritage and identity. Some explain new ideas that can inspire a very different Australia.

The Australia First Party declares that it will treat other organisations that represent the Australian community within a patriotic united front in this way:

1 Build links with each group and attempt to link together each group that all understand and appreciate the role of the party and each other.

2. Assist all in their struggles as requested.

3. .Develop united activist campaigns on public issues with each group - and do this in a consultative and cooperative spirit.

4. Exchange intelligence on disruptive elements, or state or other programs which undermine the integrity of the patriotic movement.

5. Avoid all unnecessary, unreasonable comment on groups; but point out fairly and reasonably, what any differences may be, whenever appropriate.

The Australia First Party will always maintain its independence and initiative in any united front arrangement and will act to secure its interests. However, it accepts that the times require a flexible and co-operative attitude.

Certainly, the goals of the Australia First Party are (i) to unite all nationalist and activist minded people into a single party and then to seek further working arrangements with whatever political forces may thereafter exist for whatever reasons outside of the party's ambit and (ii) to deepen the unity of Australia’s productive classes and their organisations against the traitor class and to create wider unity amongst all those resistance organisations which critique globalisation in ideas and culture.

Certainly, the party's aim is indeed to impose order where we detect diffuseness and to give focus where we note disarray.

Nonetheless, the party reasons that such general goals can not be reached by a self-proclamation of virtue. Rather, the party will fight such that its ideological position and political line progressively gain hegemony. It shall do so openly and honestly and by all fair means of discourse. No other organisation should feel anything else than a sense of relief that the position is made clear.

In the interim, and given that the fair contest of parties and other forces will continue, the Australia First Party has concluded that the only practical way whereby all may learn of each other and build the necessary bonds and links which allow for final unity, is to work confederally to construct a practical unity in struggle.

The united patriotic front is the requirement to which all should work.

Western Australian Information Commissioner Denies Australia First Its Own Records!

In a decision soon to be published on the website of the Office Of The Information Commission (Western Australia), the Commissioner has denied the Australia First Party access to what are – in effect – its own records.

This decision was not unexpected. The text of the decision itself can only be held as good public relations for the party, but it does not help us in the organizational stakes. What was the matter about?: some 2000 membership forms of the former ‘Australia First Party Incorporated’ (AFP Inc), a body incorporated under Western Australian law and now defunct. These memberships were received from 1996 until 2007. Could we recruit from this database if we possessed it? Undoubtedly.

Historical Background Of Deceit

The former AFP (Inc) was the original ‘Australia First’. It was registered as a Federal party (deregistered August 2004) and it was formed as an incorporation under Western Australian legislation (registered 1996, deregistered February 2006). The old party wound down and experienced various difficulties and did not seem to function with appropriate determination and efficiency. It drifted along at a time that most considered it was time to construct an activist nationalist movement.

In September 2007, the genuine leaders re-incorporated the party as ‘Australia First Party (NSW) Incorporated’ and in June 2010, this body was registered as a Federal political party. Many members of the former incorporation joined the party – which considers itself the proper successor of the former.

In May 2009, the legitimate party secured the effective wind-up of the old incorporation (which had purported to, in some manner or other, continue to exist three years after it was deregistered as an incorporation) and its assets were transferred to the Western Australian Department of Commerce for distribution. Our party received the monies and the other equipment of the old incorporation– but not the membership records. We applied under Freedom of Information law for our records.

The Battle For Our Membership

The new party has a valid moral claim upon the membership records. As we submitted to the Information Commission, t was hardly the fault of our leadership that a few persons in the old incorporation acted improperly and had maintained that the incorporation still existed in law. Indeed, had the legitimate leaders known of the situation within the former party, they would have acted at once to secure the members’ rights years before.

Many of our leaders were members of the former association as were many of our members. The constitutional and programmatic documents remain the same. Nonetheless, the Information Commission insists that the two ‘parties’ are different’ entities in law and that it would violate the “privacy” of the persons in the old Australia First to have the new Australia First contact them.

This is humbug, a political decision through and through. We have little doubt that the bulk of these people would welcome contact from the party and the opportunity to affiliate to it.

Rotten Politics

The court system can, as a general rule, be expected to “find” in favour of state-interest. It is not in the interest of the state that Australia First Party possesses these records. In this day and age, “privacy” is often cited by Freedom of Information tribunals etc to deny people information. Yet, the state violates our collective privacy daily and with increasing totalitarian venom.

The national committee of Australia First party will act to secure its records.
