I think it was the 1980’s (or perhaps 90’s) that the unions had a protest and sit in about something, in the ugly little park behind parliament house. I can’t remember what is was about, but it went on for some weeks. When it was over the unions declared triumphant victory, and to demonstrate their power, ta-da! We have the people’s wall. Yes that’s it, a couple of blocks of limestone and a driveway light. This perhaps explains why we all have AWA’s.
This is directly behind Parliament House. You can just see it in the background.
