A reminder that “Sites of Struggle”, the guided walks of key Wellington sites during the 1913 strike, begin tomorrow, Sunday 2 November. And, instead of the Tuesday evening talk, this Tuesday sees a special event: Flashpoint of History: Street Event.
Please join us to hear Peter Clayworth talk about The Great Strike of 1913: ‘Industrial War’ in ‘the Workers’ Paradise’, Wednesday 2 October 2013 Ministry for Culture and Heritage, L4, ASB House, 101 The Terrace, Wellington, 12.15PM.
To mark the centenary of the 1913 Great Strike the Labour History Project, alongside a number of unions, local bodies, and culture and heritage institutions, have organised a range of exciting projects.
There are three upcoming lunchtime events in Wellington this month that LHP members may be interested in.
Revolution: The 1913 Great Strike in New Zealand is a collection of papers that arose out of a 2003 Trade Union History Project conference that brought together many of New Zealand’s leading historians to re-explore the 1913 General Strike.
