In this interview,¬†originally broadcast on Community Radio 3CR, Iain McIntyre talks with Ian Milliss about his involvement with Sydney’s Victoria St squats. During the early 1970s this street in Kings Cross became the focus of a long running anti-development struggle that brought together long term residents, unionists and squatters in a campaign which reignited squatting across the city. The interview discusses the highs and lows of defying thugs, gangsters and the police in defence of a unique community. It also includes some tunes from Victoria Street resident Mick Fowler’s band.
