INVITATION - 163 years Eureka Anniversary

Continuing the fight for workers' rights - celebrating the spirit of Eureka in Australia's working class struggles

2017 Eureka Anniversary
This year's Eureka Anniversary celebration is paying tribute to the Longford Esso (Gippsland) offshore maintenance workers currently engaged in a long battle with ExxonMobil, one of the world's biggest oil and gas multinationals (Esso's parent company), defending jobs and living standards of all working people.

The celebration will be attended by a delegation of Esso Longford maintenance workers, community and union members, and descendants of the Eureka Stockade rebellion.

The Longford Esso workers will be presented with the 2017 "Spirit of Eureka Award" in recognition of their courage and determination for more than 140 days on the picket line, fighting for all of us.

Be there and show your solidarity with Longford Esso maintenance workers continuing the fighting spirit of Eureka for justice in Australia's working class struggles.

"WE SWEAR BY THE SOUTHERN CROSS TO STAND TRULY BY EACH OTHER AND FIGHT TO DEFEND OUR RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES."

FOR A JUST, SOVEREIGN AND DEMOCRATIC AUSTRALIA.

The Spirit of Eureka Committee was established in the lead up to the 150th anniversary of the Eureka Stockade in 2004, to give a strong and united voice to the current struggles of Australia’s working people.

The Spirit of Eureka draws on the continuity and relevance of this important event in the history of Australia to present day endeavours and struggles for justice, democracy and sovereignty.

The Eureka rebellion laid the foundations for Australia’s continuing social, industrial and political struggles. It was advanced for its time and represents an important fighting tradition that continues to inspire our fight today.
