Green Bans in Australia

 
 

The history of Green Bans in Australia and beyond started 1970 in Melbourne by Victorian building workers.

The Green Bans movement was one of the most inspiring and powerful moments in working-class history in this country.

Today, as our planet’s very survival is threatened by the destructive nature of capitalism, we must remember the lessons of the Green Bans movement: that working people do have the power to preserve and build the future they want.
