Interesting titbits: It is fitting for a a blog like The Network to link up with Advocacy. St Paul's, situated on Humffray Street, Ballarat, is the site of the 'monster' meeting of 11 November 1854 which was a significant event in the lead up to the Eureka rebellion. On that date the Ballarat Reform League was established to fight for the rights of the miners against officialdom and over-regulation on the goldfields of Ballarat. The spirit of Eureka has had an historic influence on the union movement in Australia.
The first May Day marches in the world took place on 1 May 1891 in Barcaldine, Queensland, in the midst of the historic Shearers's Strike. The Eureka Flag was flown in Barcaldine. Thirty-seven years after the events on the goldfields of Ballarat, the Spirit of Eureka was alive, well and not forgotten. Nor is it to-day.
