On 1 May I reported the impressive turn up of union militants when Liz Ross
launched her book on builders' labourers' struggles in Melbourne.

Last week she launched it in Brisbane - on a building site. Building
workers stopped work, and 30 books were sold. Some were paid for by the
bosses, after unionists put pressure on the employers to buy copies of it
for the workers.

Meanwhile the book is still selling well on building sites in Melbourne. We
are talking about a small print run (1000) of course, but this is still a
pretty remarkable experience in left publishing under present day
Australian conditions. 

Details about the book are here:
