 The History And Future Of Radical Politics In Australia
The prestige of the Communist Party, which had risen to an all time high during the latter stages of the Second World War, was shattered with the dawning of the Cold War, and the onset of McCarthyist hysteria in Australia and overseas.
Indeed, the Communist Party of Australia continued to play a leading role in many struggles during the post-war period, and was to become renowned around the world for its courageous stand against both Stalinism, and also the rampant US war machine in Vietnam.
With the Communist Party of Australia's voluntary liquidation in 1991, there was a brief attempt at regroupment around a new party, the "New Left Party", but with the failure of this project, a veritable vacuum was created to the left of the Australian political spectrum.

 Programme of the Communist Party of Australia (Marxist-Leninist)
The present stage in the struggle to end capitalism in Australia is the battle to win Australian independence from the foreign imperialist interests and their local allies which constitute the core of Australian capitalism.
Australia 's ruling class uses the mass media, education system, culture, etc., to push a whole system of ideas which disguises imperialist domination and monopoly exploitation and presents them as inevitable.
As an alternative to foreign imperialist domination, the Communist Party of Australia (Marxist-Leninist) supports demands to nationalise the key industries and financial institutions, to vigorously tax the large multinationals and the super-rich, and to expropriate and redistribute foreign-owned corporate farms.

 An apologia for Stalinism -- The Reds--The Communist Party of Australia from Origins to Illegality   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Unlike the founders of the CPA, who, in 1920, were inspired by the internationalist and egalitarian ideals of the 1917 Revolution, he was attracted to and joined the CPA in the late 1960s when it was a political corpse as far as socialism is concerned.
After the CPA split with the Moscow-line Socialist Party of Australia in the wake of the 1968 Kremlin invasion of Czechoslovakia, Macintyre and others took the nationalist politics of the CPA and Stalinism to its logical conclusion.
Secondly, a subservient leadership was installed in the CPA in 1929-30, in the midst of the so-called Third Period proclaimed by Stalin, during which the Kremlin denounced social democrats as "social fascists".

 The Communist Party of Australia and the Communist International (1927-1929)
Stalin's policy meant that Communist Parties everywhere were expected to refuse to work with social democrats, destroy reformist influence, and thereby win the leadership of the working-class in the struggle for revolution, seen as being on the immediate agenda.
The resolution on the ALP at the 1928 eighth annual conference of the CPA was passed with few delegates understanding its wider significance as part of a common trend within the communist parties affiliated to the Comintern, to strengthen their organisations in preparation for coming revolutions and to regard reformist parties as enemies.

For the current party, see Communist Party of Australia (revived) The Communist Party of Australia was founded in Sydney on 30 October 1920 by a group of socialists inspired by reports of the Russian Revolution.
In the later 1920s the Party was rebuilt by Jack Kavanagh, a experienced Canadian Communist activist, and Esmonde Higgins, a talented Melbourne journalist who was the nephew of a High Court judge, H.B. Higgins.
But in 1929 the Party leadership fell into disfavour with the Comintern, which under orders from Stalin had taken a turn to extreme revolutionary rhetoric (the so-called "Third Period"), and an emissary, the American Communist Harry Wicks, was sent to sort the Party out.

 Communist Party of Australia - Institution - Reason in Revolt   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Following the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the establishment of a Communist International, a conference was held in 1920 to form an Australian Communist Party (which broke up into two distinct camps).
By the end of that decade the Communist Party of Australia was established along the lines of the Communist International, to whose line it adhered until the 1960s.

 Chapter 19: The Communist Party of Australia (CPA) and the Ship Painters and Dockers Union
The Union’s attitude towards the Communist Party was generally favourable in the early period of the Party, but changes in the Party line, from time to time, eventually caused the Union to view it with disfavour.
In agreeing to purchase the tickets, at a time when Glynn had joined the Communist Party, it was indicative of the attitude of the union towards the CPA, for it was only in the previous month that the Union had decided to affiliate with the ALP.
But, with the fight against the Communist Party and its adherents, the ALP began to take on a different aspect, to indicate that the Party was not under the thumb of the unions and, according to the parliamentary representatives, was a party of all the people, not only unionists.

Jack was one of the early generation of CPA union officials, who were prominent in the union movement of the 1940s, '50s and '60s.
After the CPA criticised the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, and moved away from the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) in the direction of “Eurocommunism”;, Jack was heavily involved in the split which led to the formation of the Socialist Party of Australia (SPA) in 1971.
Jack continued to be active within the SPA, which adopted the name Communist Party of Australia in 1996 (after the old CPA had finally dissolved in 1991).

 Green Left - Issues: Communist Party backs waterfront deal
The CPA (formerly the Socialist Party of Australia), which has some influence in the MUA -- and whose member Jim Donovan is the deputy secretary for the central NSW branch (Sydney and Port Botany) -- recommended the deal as “acceptable if not totally satisfactory” (CPA Maritime Bulletin No. 20).
Given this situation, it was the duty of the CPA to try to build unity on the basis of rejection of the deal, a plan to fight on and the demand for a national stevedoring authority to replace the Patrick and PandO duopoly.
It would have meant that CPA officials and members in the union would be targeted for that tender treatment reserved for “splitters”.
