Our party formally began in 1955 when 51 parliamentarians across Australia put their careers on the line to fight against the infiltration of communism in the Australian Labor Party (ALP) and trade unions. However, our origins are in the original and authentic labour movement prior to this date. We count the members of the ALP prior to 1955, including Prime Minister Ben Chifley, as part of our party’s history.
The ALP has since lost its way. It is union controlled and preoccupied with pursuing radical social agendas, pandering to minority groups and extreme green ideology and succumbing to political correctness.
Today, the Democratic Labour Party (Labour DLP) is the only political party in Australia that still upholds traditional labour principles, a real labour party for workers affirming the value of human life and committed to preserving, protecting and building on the family.
We believe in a government that will promote social and economic justice, a fair and decent society for families and a sense of national direction that will help to make Australia prosperous, self-reliant and secure.
