Outside the State Library an honour roll was unveiled to the 13 miners acquitted of high treason resulting from the Eureka Stockade Rebellion in 1854.

Honour roll unveiled for the 13 Eureka men tried and acquitted of treason

About 15 people gathered next to the statue of Redmond Barry in the forecourt of the State Library of Victoria to unveil an honour roll to the 13 miners acquitted of High Treason arising from the the Eureka Stockade Rebellion in 1854, and the military storming of the stockade in the early hours of December 3, 1854.

Barry was one of the judges involved in the Eureka Treason trials. While there is a statue to him, there is no equivalent memorial in Melbourne to the Ballarat Miners who succeeded in bringing about a democratic revolution in the Australian colonies.

Next Wednesday 3rd December take the day off to comemorate the miners who died 149 years ago and Celebrate the important elements of the Eureka rebellion: Direct Democracy, Direct Action, and Solidarity.
