In 1920, a small group of socialists met in Sydney to found the Communist Party of Australia. They fought for a world free of exploitation and built on solidarity. They failed in their ultimate goals. But a century later, we remember their legacy of struggle and the real accomplishments of the workers’ movement in Australia.
Bob Boughton was a member of the Communist Party of Australia from 1975 to 1991. He is the convenor of the SEARCH Foundation CPA Biographies project.
