Radicals: Remembering the Sixties

Meredith Burgmann, Nadia Wheatley

The Sixties - an era of protest, free love, civil disobedience, duffel coats, flower power, giant afros and desert boots, all recorded on grainy black and white film footage - marked a turning point for change. Radicals found their voices and used them.

While the initial trigger for protest was opposition to the Vietnam War, this anger quickly escalated to include Aboriginal Land Rights, Women’s Liberation, Gay Liberation, Apartheid, Student Power and ‘workers' control'.

In Radicals some of the people doing the changing - including David Marr, Margret RoadKnight, Gary Foley, Jozefa Sobski and Geoffrey Robertson - reflect on how the decade changed them and Australian society forever.
