The Red Flag riots

The Union of Russian Workers (URW) and Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) had reconstituted themselves as a Soviet committee. The Union of Workers was an umbrella organisation for pro-Bolshevik emigres. The URW had organised a 1,500 strong rally in Brisbane in January 1919.

The Brisbane Trades Hall red flag was confiscated on 2 October, 1918. This was the start of a series of events that erupted in Brisbane over the next three days. The “red-flaggers” defied the authorities, carrying a red flag in a protest march through Brisbane.
