Dictionary of Sydney – Preservation of historical Sydney sites with the Green Ban Movement

Can you imagine Sydney without The Rocks? or what if we didn’t have the Centennial Parklands or the State Theatre? These are just some of the iconic Sydney places that were saved from wholesale destruction in the 1970s by the imposition of green bans by trade unionists. Jack Mundey was one of these trade unionists, an activist and environmentalist who changed the face of Sydney through the instigation of green bans.
