Digital Photograph - Protestors Marching in Street Demonstration, Melbourne, circa 1992 Image Reg. No: MM 110390

Description Of Content:
Protestors marching in a street demonstration, carrying placards. There is a man in a denim jacket in the foreground, and a red car.

This photograph shows a street demonstration against the Kennett State Victorian Government, circa 1992. The march was about rights for workers, threats to funding and ongoing employment for public servants, council amalgamations, and school closures. The photographer, Liza Dale-Hallet remembers it as 'A general protest against the strategies and decisions of the State Liberal government at the time, which were seen as aggressive, unnecessary and 'rude' by many people. This march was very early. The laws were changed by the State Government to make demonstrations of this kind more difficult. People became exhausted and overwhelmed. These were the largest demonstrations to be held in Melbourne since the Vietnam War Moratorium- over 100,000 people marched.'
