‘Workers Embassy’

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia

Solidarity Park is located opposite the Parliament House in Perth, Western Australia. In 1997 a ‘Workers Embassy’ was set up on some vacant land opposite the Parliament House during union protests of the Court Governments ‘third wave’ legislation for industrial relations. What began with a caravan and portable barbecue soon transformed into a landscaped shelter with a monument to the trade union workers who have died during their work. Special mention was made to Mark Allen, a young CFMEU organiser who was killed on a building site while attempting to get workers down from an unsafe roof.
