The Melbourne Anarchists' Club was officially formed on May 1, 1886. An outline of the objectives of the Melbourne Anarchists' Club is presented. Among the expressed goals are the speedy dissolution of governing institutions and monopolies and the promotion liberty, equality and fraternity among the working people of all ranks.
