THE EIGHT CORE POLICIES OF AUSTRALIA FIRST PARTY


The Eight Core Policies of Australia First are the basis of association for the party.  They are (with explanation and the implied ninth point) as follows:

  1. Ensure Australia Retains Full Independence

Protect our sovereignty (national, constitutional, and personal) and maintain an adequate defence whilst being compassionate and fair in our Nation’s international dealings.
  1. Rebuild Australian Manufacturing Industries

This is the only way we can be self-sufficient. It will provide jobs for our children, and help buy back the farm and allow Australia to be free of foreign debts. Our infrastructure has been run down over many years – it must be rebuilt. We must improve the practicality and relevance of our educational systems, and target government support for industry to diversify, innovate, perform, and expand. We recognise that small business is fundamental to this policy. A satisfactory financial environment is also essential.
  1. Control Foreign Ownership

Bring foreign ownership and investment back under control.
  1. Reduce and Limit Immigration

Immigration mistakes can be big long term mistakes. Immigration policy must take into account social cohesion, employment opportunities, urbanisation and environmental issues.
  1. Abolish Multiculturalism

End the divisive, government-funded and institutionalised policy of multiculturalism.
  1. Introduce Citizen’s Initiated Referenda

Amend the Australian Constitution so that the people can initiate constitutional referendums which, if approved by the Australian people, will amend the Australian Constitution. This simple step will confirm the political authority of voters and make politicians aware that they are the servants of the Australian people, not their masters.  The people directly should also possess the sovereign right and the power to initiate other legislation.
  1. Strengthen the Family

Promote policies that strengthen and protect the traditional family.
  1. Strive To Rebuild A United Australia

Promote policies that recognise the interdependence of city and country.

The 8 Core Policies are mentioned in the Constitution of the Party and are its political articles of association.

Issues of public interest on which Australia First needs to formulate policy will be canvassed with the party membership and plebiscites conducted where deemed appropriate by the party’s National Council.  The party also permits branches to formulate specific electoral policies or community policies not inconsistent with the Eight Core Policies. From time to time, the party will issue material that provides an interpretation of the core policies.  This interpretative material would reflect the spirit of the party. The organisational purpose for this statement of policy and system for policy creation is simple:  Australia First does not require weighty tomes, which change from month to month, as do the programmes of the Establishment parties and those who ape them.  It requires a focus for action and unity within the party. Australia First is to build a new national movement.  Practicality is the method. “Whatever will benefit Australia, that we are for; whatever will harm Australia, that we are against.” – William Lane

We are in dark times indeed, and more than ever, as Australians we are at the mercy of an unmovable two-party parliamentary model. We do not have representatives, but spivs and 'influencers', who carry us the party message and not the other way around. The people are ignored, but then, who are the Australian people?

To the mainstream parties, they are anybody with a vote, and in that, they don't discriminate. Australians are merely occupants of a trading zone whose sole function is to consume. We are not a nation, but an economy, and when a society is determined purely by economic considerations it is no longer a cultural entity. When you strip a nation of its culture; when you displace its people then it is a nation no more, but simply a country, with a flag and a basic set of rules. Spiritual life ceases, community fractures, values desert us, and morality becomes whatever the politically correct dictators of the Cancel Council tells us. Is this what our soldiers fought for when by blood, sweat and grit they pushed back the Japs and saved the nation? Did they sign up to find that, nearly 80 years later their country is unrecognisable as the home they defended? Did they die so that strange peoples from stranger lands would take the place of their folk on the say-so of a faux ideological persuasion? 

When questions of identity merge with issues of freedom the true Australian knows that his only hope is for independence. We need independence from the global system; from our reliance on superpower 'defenders' whose society overtakes our own. 

At this present time, these vexing questions of identity, freedom and representation are at the fore of our daily life while a cultural revolution is taking place. The so-called Cancel Culture aims to tear down any memory of those who built this nation and alienate the people who sprang from its settlement back in 1788. It was a hard road to become an Australian, but now any race can call themselves Australian whether or not they are born here, and regardless of how they identify. After all, what does it mean if it connotes nothing to be an Australian other than a statement of the geographical location one occupies?

While this internal destabilization is happening, we have our greatest threat, and perhaps the largest existential threat the world has ever known: China. Right now, we are not only being betrayed by a political class that values wealth over patriotism, which sells the very ground out from underneath us to our Communist enemies, but forces from those like ‘Black Lives Matter’ and its Left-wing controllers seek to weaken us at a time of national vulnerability. Yet, what is being done, and who is to do it? It is not ‘government’ or elected officials, but ourselves we must rely on.

What does one do, you may ask?

Australia has had a long history of trying to counter the power of the establishment parties, but in one way or another, they drop off or become absorbed into another entity which in turn becomes sucked back into the mainstream; it is an unrelenting political cycle. We have seen many political and non-political organisations come and go, some with conflicting ideas, but many in agreement. The nature of the political establishment is such that it is impossible to change through parliamentarian lobbying. When one understands this, then one comprehends that what faces us transcends mere politics into a struggle, not just for survival, but for our very existence. Under such circumstances, the nature of the petition carries very little force.

Australia First Party has a history based on a strong Nationalist tradition. We have fought, not just elections, but campaigns of civil disobedience. But if people are to ask, why has the AFP not changed Australia yet, we must throw the question back at you: how come you have not helped us to?

Now is the time to join us — we have a long struggle ahead.
