Bernie Banton - rest in peace!

Bernie Banton has died. Bernie Banton's name will shame the rich and powerful forever. He was as game as Ned Kelly in taking on James Hardie and their mongrel apologists in the Liberal Party. His spirit will forever permeate the great Australian trade union movement. Henry Lawson should be alive today to write a poem in his honour. My sympathies to his family and loved ones. You rest in peace now Bernie, because we'll never rest so long as injustice is done to working people!
