Continuing the fight for workers’ rights – celebrating the spirit of Eureka in Australia’s working class struggles
This year’s Eureka Anniversary celebration is paying tribute to the Longford Esso (Gippsland) offshore maintenance workers currently engaged in a long battle with ExxonMobil, one of the world’s biggest oil and gas multinationals (Esso’s parent company), defending jobs and living standards of all working people.
The celebration will be attended by a delegation of Esso Longford maintenance workers, community and union members, and descendants of the Eureka Stockade rebellion.
The Longford Esso workers will be presented with the 2017 “Spirit of Eureka Award” in recognition of their courage and determination for more than 140 days on the picket line, fighting for all of us.
Be there and show your solidarity with Longford Esso maintenance workers continuing the fighting spirit of Eureka for justice in Australia’s working class struggles.
