Episode Info:

This episode we explore two more Melbourne stories of people rising up and sticking it to the man.

It’s world war one and class tensions on the homefront are mounting. “I can tell you about the broken lives that caused the broken windows” says activist and suffragette Adela Pankhurst. 

In the early 1930s, the unemployed organise and fight a barrage of evictions across the suburb of Brunswick, even if it means breaking a few windows. Or getting shot. 

Check out the original Melbourne On Strike episode in Season One.
