Manifesto of the Queensland Labour Party to the people of Queensland

The manifesto stands as one of the planks upon which the Queensland and Australian labour movement developed, focusing on greater electoral success and wider parliamentary representation as a means of progressing its aims and aspirations. It can be described as one of the formative documents of the Australian Labour Party, providing a coverage of the party's grievances, with a focus upon the ruling class of the time, including squatters, employers, the government and others that Labour saw as opponents to its aims in terms of better working conditions and economic prosperity.
