- The formation of the Socialist Party of Australia
- Communists and the Labour Movement National Conference, Melbourne, 22, 23, 24 August 1980
In this paper, Pat Clancy, President of the Socialist Party of Australia, describes the reasons behind the formation of the Socialist Party of Australia in 1971. He argues that the Communist Party veered away from the principles of scientific Marxist-Leninism in the 1960s, in favour of 'a hotch potch of reformism, anarcho-syndicalism, trotskyism and libertarianism'.
He then sets out the key policies of the SPA.
