United We Stand

Caught graffiti-ing a West Coast coal miners' hall, Keisha and Sunny are trapped inside with its ancient guardian. When Shorty orders the pair to clean up the mess, they quickly proclaim their 'right to strike'. Fired up, he describes the role the hall had to play in ensuring the right to strike and the fight for the eight hour day that is cemented in our social history. The story of the 1908 Blackball Crib Time Strike, with its colourful cast of bosses and workers, is historically accurate.
