McIntyre, Iain
Victoria Street Squats Interview with Ian Milliss
Description of Work
Broadcast on Radio 3CR and podcast at the Australian Museum of Squatting and Community Audio

Iain McIntyre talks with Ian Milliss about his involvement with Sydney's Victoria St squats. During the early 1970s this street in Kings Cross became the focus of a long running anti-development struggle that brought together long term residents, unionists and squatters in a campaign which reignited squatting across the city. The interview, originally broadcast on Community Radio 3CR, discusses the highs and lows of defying thugs, gangsters and the police in defence of a unique community.
