Green bans

Green bans are strike action, usually by a workers' group, carried out for environmentalist, conservationist or heritage purposes.

They began in Sydney in 1971, when 13 middle-class women teamed up with trade unionists led by Jack Mundey.

"This was the first time the enlightened working class teamed with the enlightened middle class anywhere in the world" - Jack Mundey.[1]

"What's the use of getting better wages and better conditions if we choke to death in unplanned, polluted cities?" - Jack Mundey.[1]
