Formed in 1942, the Monarchist League has always had a presence in Australia, albeit a fairly small one at times. However over the last decade the League attracted a support base in excess of 15,000 and became a very active participant in the Debate on Australia's constitutional future.
The League has only one criterion, to retain The Australian Crown in the Australian Constitution. Over the past decade it has done everything within its power to safeguard our monarchical symbols, traditions and heritage.
The League has been particularly successful in organising lobbying and protest campaigns defending the honour of our Sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and protecting the integrity of the Australian Crown.
Ignored by media and Governments alike, we have nevertheless established a track record unsurpassed by any other organisation as the following list will indicate.
Although receiving no funding from the Government, it is with a sense of pride that we can say that it was us who, during the Referendum Campaign:
- met urgent requests received from throughout the country for the supply of leaflets for letter box drops printing over two million leaflets.
- by ourselves, took the Australian Electoral Commission to the Federal Court to seek redress against guidelines to scrutineers which allowed such marks as a tick to be accepted as a 'YES' whilst rejecting a cross as informal.
- led the active How to Vote No campaign against the Preamble.
- requested churches throughout the country to pray for the well being of the Nation prior to the Referendum.
