Description of Work
Kemira documents a strike by miners at a BHP owned colliery near Wollongong where two-thirds of the workforce was under threat of dismissal. The strike, in October 1982, focused attention on the plight of the people of Wollongong, typical of other small Australian cities that were profoundly affected by the economic recession. As well as documenting the day by day organisation of the strike, Kemira follows the fortunes of the families involved and the profound personal changes they went through.
