This 20th anniversary year of Laborfest, the annual commemoration of the 1934 San Francisco maritime general strike, is your treasured educational prelude to history in the making, the BART workers renewed strike that apparently will take place commencing August 4, 2013, the kind of strike that will make possible the socialized medicine we failed to win in 1935, when we won Social Security, unemployment insurance and the right to organize labor unions as a result of the San Francisco, Minneapolis and Toledo 1934 general strikes. You can learn this history and more at Laborfest.
