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.
