Only two people have been killed in the course of industrial disputes in
NZ.  One (Frederick Evans) in the 1912 Waihi miners' strike and the other
(Christine Clarke) on a port workers picket line in Lyttelton
(Christchurch's port) in late December 1999.  This article looks at the
different political conditions and how these dictated different responses
to the deaths.  For instance, Christine Clarke's death was recorded as part
of the holiday road toll.  See:
