Australia Day

Australia Day should remain on the 26th of January to serve as a sign that despite past wrongs, love is stronger than hate, understanding is stronger than prejudice, and forgiveness is stronger than the grudges that hold us down. Holding onto the hurt of the decades and generations past only serves to prevent complete and meaningful reconciliation.

The Australia of today is not the Australia of the time of British colonisation. We should be rightly proud – not of the wrongs committed by those who were before us – but of how far Australia has come in advancing fairness and respect for all its peoples. However, we must never lose sight of the never ending need to foster the virtues and values that enable us to embrace the human dignity of all peoples.

And so, by celebrating Australia Day on the 26th of January, we not only celebrate and appreciate the value and contributions of people from various backgrounds and cultures who have made Australia the vibrant and highly cultured nation it is today. But we also celebrate the great hope in knowing that wrongs can be made right, and remind ourselves of the strength in always striving to be a better and more virtuous people, community and nation.

DLP REGISTRATION FOR TASMANIAN ELECTION

The Democratic Labour Party is hoping to register for the Tasmanian State Election which is to be held by May 2018,

Its been many years since we stood in a Tasmanian State election but with the growth of the party in recent years its time we reentered the fight. 

The Australian Christians and Family First have been absorbed by the Australian Conservatives who have not registered for the next Tasmanian State election. This leaves no Christian pro-life parties to defend the rights of all Tasmanians except the DLP.  

As a supporting member you will help the Tasmanian branch of the DLP become registered and to run candidates. You will also be entitled to nominate as a candidate for the next State and federal elections. 

New Tasmanian members are not required to pay a fee for the first 12 months of their supporting membership.

To become a supporting member please join online at www.dlp.org.au/join/

Further details can be obtained by contacting the Tasmanian State Secretary at tassec@dlp.org.au
