One Nation - One Year on


9 Apr 1998


Despite the most dishonest, vicious and unrelenting attacks in Australia’s political history, Pauline Hanson’s One Nation has not only survived but flourished. This weekend, hundreds of One Nation members will celeb rate the organisation’s first birthday at the home of their founder and leader, Pauline Hanson.


Liberals, Nationals, Labor, Greens and Democrats combined with their accomplices the internationalists, socialists and all their affiliates, minority lobby groups, opinion makers and elements of the media all joined forces to liquidate the only true voice of the majority, Pauline Hanson’s One Nation. However, this monstrous, unrepresentative and selfishly motivated group has failed, One Nation is still growing.


Pauline continues to address large gatherings of supporters, the most recent being last Saturday night when she was enthusiastically received by over 500 people in Lightning Ridge. Australians everywhere are rising up to support Pauline Hanson’s One Nation as they are heartily sick of the false and socially divisive policies of free trade and economic rationalism.


When Pauline addressed a number of meetings around Sydney in March she spoke to over three thousand people but the various protest organisations could barely muster three hundred when the number of protesters from all venues were added together. This is now typical as in most cases Pauline’s speeches are delivered without any appearance of protesters - certainly the protesters backs’ have been broken.


With membership growing steadily each week and new branches springing up all over Australia, support for One Nation is succeeding against the tide of lies put out by those who consider themselves the establishment. We reject globalisation, mass immigration, the destruction of our industries, the export of our jobs, the sale of Australia and the planned ruination of the rural sector and our standard of living. We are proud to be dedicated and patriotic nationalists.


Most candidates came forward each day - they will be armed with the policies to arrest and reverse our nation’s decline and soon the battle will be joined as we, in One Nation, fight to always place the interests of Australians first and foremost. The celebration this weekend marks the first birthday of the beginning of the long road back.


The day of the ballot box is coming.
