There are valuable lessons all of us who are active in the labour movement can learn from those who travelled the road before us.
This website contains interviews with former members and supporters
of the Communist Party of Australia who were active in Queensland in
the 1940s and 1950s. The interviews were based around a
discussion of the organising strategies and methods which Party members
used during those years. All of those who were interviewed were
very keen that their stories might play a small part in labour movement
struggles of the coming years.
The interviews were conducted during 2013, mostly in Brisbane and Townsville.

The project has been supported with funding from a Roger Coates Labour History Research Grant, under the auspices of SEARCH Foundation.
