Melbourne Anarchist Club >>Founded 1 May 1886 by brothers David A. Andrade and William C. Andrade >>65 individuals in total recorded as being present at meetings >>Objectives were expressions of liberty, economic demands, the lessening of Government and sentiments of internationalism.Monthly club paper, entitled 'Honesty' published from April 1887, circulated to like-minded organisations worldwide >>Formed in part, due to the disbanding of the Working Mens Political Reform Association in 1885. Half of the WMPRA became foundation members of Melbourne Anarchist Club >>The Anarchists were brought together within the Australian Secular Association (founded 01/07/1882) >>The first Melbourne Anarchist Club meetings were held in the ASA rooms at 120 Swanston Street, then moved to 'Room 7' of Alexandra Theatre (later Her Majesty's Theatre), 219 Exhibition Street >>MAC member 'Monty' Miller was jailed in 1919 by Prime Minister Billy Hughes for campaigning against conscription under the War Precautions Act >>Preceded the founding of the Social Democratic League, which in turn lead to the founding of Progressive Political League (Labor Party) in 1891

To the People of Australasia The Melbourne Anarchists Club extends its greetings to the liberty loving citizens of these young colonies and appeals to them to assist its members in their efforts to remove those public sentiments and public institutions, which have been transplanted here from the northern hemispheres, retard social progress and happiness; and to substitute in their place the enabling principles of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity! The objects of the Melbourne Anarchists Club are: 1. To foster public interest in the great social questions of the day, by promoting inquiry in every possible way; to promote free public discussions of all social questions; and to circulate and publish literature, throwing light upon existing evils of society, and the methods necessary for their removal. 2. To foster and extend the principles of Self Reliance, Self Help and a Spirit of Independence amongst the people. 3. To uphold and maintain the principles of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. By Liberty we mean the equal liberty of each, limited alone by the equal liberty of all. By Equality we mean the equality of opportunity for each individual. And by Fraternity we mean that principle which denies national and class distinctions, asserts the Brotherhood of Man and says The world is my country. 4. To advocate, and seek to achieve,the abolition of all monopolies and despotisms which destroy the Freedom of the Individual and which there by check social progress and prosperity. 5. To expose and oppose that colcrssal swindle, Government, and to advocate Abstention from Voting, Resistance to Taxation, and Private Co-operation or Individual Action. 6. To foster Mutual Trust and Fraternity amongst the working people of all ranks, and to turn their attention to their common foes: the Priests and the Politicans, and their co adjutors, attacking principles rather than individuals. 7. To invite the co-operation of all, who have realised the innate evils of our governing institutions, and desire their speedy dissolution for the general benefit of Humanity. To priomote the formation of voluntary institutions similar to the Melbourne Anarchist Club throughout Victoria and the neighbouring colonies, and, with their consent, to eventually unite with them forming The Australasian Association of Anarchists.
