This first issue was published by ASF Melbourne in May 1986. At the time there were two railways workers and one tramways worker member. The first issue was eight pages long. The aim of this activity by ASF Melbourne was to increase the awareness of anarcho-syndicalism and anarchism in the public transport industry in Victoria as a first step towards creating an ASF-affiliated public transport workers union. The focus of the paper was to be mainly on issues current in the industry but also other contemporary issue relevant to workers in Australia.
