The Annerley Branch, formed in March 2001, is an energetic and progressive local branch of the (Queensland) Australian Labor Party, committed to making the ALP more democratic and more responsive to its membership.

We have a proud history of Party and community activism and many of our members participate in the wider labour movement.

Our Mission
To endeavour, by unity of purpose and action, to secure the Party’s objectives by assisting in the return, to Federal and State Parliament’s and Local Government, of candidates pledged to the platform and policies adopted from time to time by the duly constituted National and State Conferences of the Australian Labor Party.

Our Vision
To be an active and energetic local ALP branch that encourages member participation, fosters a diversity of opinions and views, contributes to the formation and implementation of Labor Party policy and rules, and is vocal within the community.

Our Values
The Annerley Branch promotes the following values:
  • democratic socialism – the Branch strongly supports the democratic socialisation of industry, production, distribution and exchange, to the extent necessary to eliminate exploitation and other anti social features in these fields.
  • economic justice – the Branch believes that economic policy must promote the well being of the community.
  • equality – the Branch supports the concept of social and political equality.
  • equity – the Branch encourages member participation from a wide diversity of backgrounds and cultures.
  • social co-operation – the Branch seeks to work with others in the labour movement and the local community to promote our democratic socialist values.
  • environmental sustainability – the Branch encourages and promotes awareness of environmental sustainability in relation to all decision making on social and economic development matters.
  • intergenerational responsibility – the Branch believes that government decision making should encompass long term planning to ensure real social and economic benefit for future generations.
