Description

The economic depression of the 1930s saw thousands of Australians thrown out of their homes and into the streets. These actions however
did not go unopposed. Across Australia pickets, occupations and protests were organised to disrupt and prevent evictions and auctions. Where these failed some took matters into their own hands wrecking the properties of landlords and real estate agents in revenge.

This pamphlet chronicles just some of the many struggles that took place. It includes a chronology of actions as well as photos and quotes from those involved providing a fascinating insight into the events of the time.
