The paradigm-shifting Green Ban movement was born in NSW in the early 1970s. Green Bans were industrial actions by unionists supported by environmentalists and community activists. They notched up many wins – stopping deplorable developments and the destruction of low cost housing, bushland and heritage buildings, and eventually causing planning laws to be improved. Led by Jack Mundey, who is now a member of the Greens, the Green Ban movement inspired people around the world.
