PASSIVE RESISTANCE AT DARWIN

MORE RESIDENTS GAOLED      

FOR REFUSING TO PAY TAX  

SYDNEY LABOR COUNCIL ACTS

Sydney, Friday.        

The New South Wales Trades and Labor Council last night carried a motion of protest against the imprison- ment of a number of residents at Port

Darwin for refusing to pay Federal

income tax.  

This action was taken in response to the following wire from union officials at Darwin:-"Eleven more residents appeared before the court to-day for re- fusing to pay tax until they receive representation. Mr. Nelson (secretary of the A.W.U.), Mr. Brennan (secre- tary of the A.M.I.E.U.), and four others, received 28 days' gaol. The other cases were adjourned. We call upon the council to hold public protest meetings; also to raise subscriptions to carry on the fight. Nine men are now in prison, seven of whom have young families." More prosecutions are to follow. Of the imprisoned men four are leading speakers, while the rest are

committeemen."
