Illegal pamphlet, 1951 waterfront dispute

All publications supporting the watersiders’ position during the 1951 dispute were banned under special government regulations. The wharfies used hidden printing presses and a network of secret supporters to produce and distribute their information. This pamphlet, illustrated by Max Bollinger, names the members of the Wellington watersiders’ union who were ‘scabs’ (strike-breakers).
