He was alright, Jack

Vale Jack Mundey – the unlikely greenie who saved The Rocks, among other heritage icons in Sydney with his green bans. He was more articulate than most and would have been elected (and made a good MP) had he not been in the dreaded communist party.

Secretary of the Builders Labourers Federation, he took the view that the work of the union should improve the lives of the people of NSW, not harm communities nor degrade the environment. That’s fair enough, Jack.
