His­to­rian on NZ’s Great Strike

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

His­to­rian Peter Clay­worth will give a pub­lic talk on the Great Strike of 1913 at Pataka on Sun­day, July 6, 3.30pm.

The Great Strike was one of the largest in New Zealand’s his­tory. It in­volved about 14,000 work­ers, at a time when the coun­try’s pop­u­la­tion was only one mil­lion. It was sparked by a min­ers’ strike at Huntly over the sack­ing of union­ists, and a dis­pute in Welling­ton over ship­ping.
