1913 Strike Centennial Events

1913 Strike Centennial Events

“Sites of Struggle”, the guided walks of key Wellington sites during the 1913 strike, begin tomorrow, Sunday 2 November. More details here: http://1913greatstrike.org/walks/

And, instead of the Tuesday evening talk, this Tuesday sees a special event: Flashpoint of History: Street Event, where striking workers and Massey’s Cossacks come head to head on Wellington streets. At 11.30am on Tuesday 5 November the event will begin, and commemorative parade will commence from Museum of Wellington City & Sea at high noon and proceed along Lambton Quay to Bunny Street. The parade takes the force of the 1913 workers into the Wellington streets to pass by today’s city workers on their lunch break. http://1913greatstrike.org/flashpoint-of-history-street-event/
