    Hi, Would you please explain the general meaning of this sentence?
    Some of the wisest voters in our part of the valley, boys suckled on grief and unrest, told me that I had struck a fine blow for tenants all over the world.

    Please tell us where you found this sentence (that is, its source), and in what context (that is, what is going on in the situation). Also, which parts of the sentence do you understand, and which ones are confusing you?

    I don't understand the meaning of marked part. I do not have all of the story. I have only one paragraph.
    Everybody made a great fuss of me as we were waiting for the trial.

Some of the wisest voters in our part of the valley, boys suckled on grief and unrest, told me that I had struck a fine blow for tenants all over the world.
