Saturday October 30 was the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Communist movement in Australia. The event was celebrated with exhibitions, films, toasts and meetings around the country.
“The focus for the anniversary celebrations is to look back with pride and to look forward to campaigning for a socialist future for Australia,” Dr Hannah Middleton, CPA General Secretary, said.
“We Communists are proud of our history and want to put it on display.
“At the same time, the Communist Party of Australia is a living and effective part of the campaigns against privatisation, against the war in Afghanistan, for the rights of Aborigines, women, migrants and refugees, for a nationalised health system, and for sustainable development and environmental protection, and much more,” she said.
International greetings were received from communist and workers parties in Greece, the Philippines, Israel, Brazil, Ireland, Pakistan, Bohemia and Moravia, the Russian Federation, Martinique, Algeria and Venezuela.
