Labor legend Tom Uren dies a national icon on Australia Day.

Balmain working class hero and Labor legend Tom Uren dies a national icon on Australia Day.
This Political Giant who is locally and nationally celebrated will remain as an important part of our Australian History. The different stages of Tom’s almost 94 years covered so much of the Australian experience – soldier, heavyweight boxer, prisoner of war, parliamentarian, anti-war activist, Minister, environmentalist, and humanitarian of the highest order.
