Background

John Green was a Justice of the Peace.

Goldfields Involvement, 1854

Green was delegated to read the riot act at the meeting at Bentley's Eureka Hotel, but Robert Rede decides to attend after receiving a message that the diggers were pulling down the hotel. He was a witness examined during the report of the Board appointed to enquire into circumstances connected with the riot at Ballarat, and the burning of James Bentley's Eureka Hotel.[1] Things happened so quickly that the Riot Act was not read.
